Sade Kahve

Map shows the location of Sade Kahve

If you want to escape the busy traffic and thronging tourists of the Old City, head further up the Bosphorus to Rumeli Hisari in the Sariyer district.

Here you'll find Sade Kahve, one of Istanbul's most charming cafes.

It's the perfect spot for a simple but delicious Turkish breakfast. Sit down with the locals and enjoy bagels, eggs, Turkish tortillas, olives, tomatoes, white cheese and homemade pastries served with a Turkish coffee, prepared in the traditional style over glowing coals.

Rumelihisar is also worth a visit while you are in the area. This impressive and imposing fortress on the hill behind Sade Kahve was built by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II between 1451 and 1452 - not long before he captured Constantinople.
