Touristic places tend to be overpriced, but luckily you can always find some affordable places. Istanbul’s Süleymaniye neighbourhood has always been famous for its bean dish (kurufasulye) and recently more and more terrace cafes with nice Golden Horn views are being opened in the area. I have written about two of them already. One quite close to Süleymaniye mosque and the other one closer to Eminönü, on the rooftop as well.
This time, I have visited a breakfast place close to Istanbul University campus. It is located on the way which leads from Laleli to Süleymaniye mosque, just next to the aqueduct and therefore named Valens. During the week, mostly students visit it, therefore prices are affordable and service is quick.
Breakfast plate costs only 13 TL, which makes it one of the cheapest in Istanbul.
