Why locals love it

We have an old saying in Turkey: “A single cup of coffee can create a friendship that lasts 40 years”. This explains why coffee is such an important part of life for Turkish people.

Why you should visit it

This small coffee shop has been selling excellent Turkish coffee since 1871. It has many fans who wait in long queues to buy coffee that has been freshly roasted and ground.

Special tip

If you see someone reading coffee grounds, ask them to read your fortune too!
