Turkish hospitality is amazing but this cafe is beyond even that. Such sincerity and attention to customers ... And totally genuine. The food is incredible too - if you even have time to pay attention to it over the warmth and love of the staff.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
