Sultanahmet, Eminönü and Sirkeci areas are usually considered to be touristy areas, hence more expensive. But sometimes you need to give this area a second chance and explore it. New places are opening every year and some might surprise you in a positive way.
After all the Instagram stories I have seen, I have decided to finally go for a breakfast to a place hidden among çarşis, but still very close to the Eminönü square: Mim kahve. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t really nice and I couldn’t enjoy nice views from their top floor. More then for breakfast, this place is famous for a great variety of coffee, good view and interior design.
Their breakfast plate (Kahvaltı tabağı) is pretty big and it costs only 22tl. Among other things, it includes also french fries (which I exchanged for extra veggies), tahin pekmezi and unlimited tea. View from the top floor is really nice, however, it might be a bit difficult to find it. I recommend it to search for it with the help of Google Maps.
