J'adore Chocolatier Café18
Why locals love it
This is where you’ll find the best chocolate in Istanbul, there’s no doubt about it. Plus, it’s the perfect sanctuary if you want to escape the hectic Taksim crowds. It’s small, warm and peaceful, and its lemony fragrance has a particularly relaxing effect.
Why you should visit it
With a friendly 70s vibe, French background music, good seasonal dishes and desserts and a delectable assortment of chocolates, J'adore Chocolatier Café is a great place for an intimate rendezvous.
The “Oh là là Beatrice” cake is good, but the hot chocolate is even better.
