Week #30: Breakfast Universe

I would probably never had gone to brekafast to this place, if my friends didn’t invite me here. Not because it looks bad, but because I would never guess that a pub actually serves breakfast. And a huge one! It has been a few months ago, that I have visited Kosmos in Beşiktaş. I rememberContinue reading “Week #30: Breakfast Universe”

Week #29: Freshly Baked Bread

Istanbul has many bakeries, however it is not always easy to find a sourdough bread. This place not only serves a sourdough bread for breakfast, but also bakes it. It is served fresh and warm…and you can even buy a loaf of bread and take it home.

Week#28: Big yet Affordable Breakfast Plate

I don’t know if it’s is to blame the free fall of the Turkish Lira or something else for the breakfast price increase. Whatever the reason, it is not very likely that the prices will go down. Luckily one can still find affordable and big breakfast plates. Personally, I do prefer good quality ingredients, freshContinue reading “Week#28: Big yet Affordable Breakfast Plate”

Week #27: Grandma at Barcelona

Oma, a grandma, is always a food expert, isn’t she? I have visited Grandma in Istanbul before and I was pretty happy with the breakfast she served me. This time I have visited Oma in Barcelona and I wasn’t disappointed either. And I think no one was since there was actually line in front ofContinue reading “Week #27: Grandma at Barcelona”

Week #26: Draw me an Elephant

Whenever I think of breakfast, Karaköy keeps on calling me. And it keeps on surprising me as well. The gentrification of the area has been developing really fast in the last few years. I don’t know if this is good or bad news for the local people, but it certainly brings variety in the localContinue reading “Week #26: Draw me an Elephant”

Week #25: Breakfast at Coffe Shop

Çapa neighbourhood in Istanbul’s Fatih district is not among the popular breakfast destinations in the city. However, due to its relatively young population (there are 2 big Medical Faculties in the neighbourhood or very close to it, besides that, it is located between 3 universities) more and more new coffee places have been opening theirContinue reading “Week #25: Breakfast at Coffe Shop”

Week #24: Affordable Breakfast at the Old City

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 quiteContinue reading “Week #24: Affordable Breakfast at the Old City”
