The views over the Golden Horn are fantastic and are worth the trip to this café. After you’ve gotten your fill of panoramas from the viewing platform, wander over to the teahouse for a drink of tea, coffee, water, soda, Ayran…just not anything alcoholic. It’s a cute place with a number of tables set out under the leafy trees, many of which have more pretty views of the Golden Horn. It is a wonderful location to rest and escape the direct Turkish summer sun. The setting, combined with the historical uniforms of the waiters, feels like you’d see the ghosts of turn-of-the-century French and Turkish intelligentsia and artists holding lively discussions about this and that.
