This is one cafe in Istanbul that will whisk you off to Paris without your passport. The desserts and the atmosphere is so chic in a French design that you will fall in love instantly. Try the brunch and you will feel like The Eiffel Tower is only a block away. It is one of my sacred place that I... More

While i wasn't so impressed with their dinner/lunch, I was extremely pleased with their breakfast. The options are great, turkish, as well as a large variety of foreign, continental stuff. I tasted a lot of things and they were all awesome. My personal fave is the florentine which is the best I've had in istanbul. Highly highly recommended for breakfast/brunch.

I found the menu to be limited and the food to be rather average. Maybe next time I'll try their desserts; it's what everyone around us seemed to be ordering

The atmosphere was lovely--soft music, a garden with Victorian decor. The tea was very nice. The desserts, not so much. We tried the Sizzling Brownie in a skillet. They do say that there will be a slight burnt taste to the sauce and the bottom of the brownie, but it was overwhelming and really ruined the taste for me. Our... More

Decoration is cute. But, the food is average. I was there for Lunch and I had a cup of winter vegetable soup and cafe de Paris style steak. The soup tasted OK but the ingredient vegetables were not balanced (too much carrot) and over priced (15TL). The steak was also similar; mediocre and over priced. Although I live in the... More

I have visited this place with a friend for a cup of tea as it was very cold outside. There was a herbal tea option which sounded really nice. It was their home made tea with cinnamon apple etc. The tea arrived but didn't taste nice at all, very sweet and luke warm. As it was quite expensive there( 12... More

Poor service & the actual cakes didn't taste as good as they looked. We tried out quite a few cakes & weren't really impressed with many of them.

The decoration and the concept are really good: fine and chic. Food look nice but the taste is very ordinary. We tried avocado toast that was a total disappointment, they can add some more salad and bread for a plate you pay 27 TL... Oreo Charlotte wasn't like the classical french Charlotte, it was a huge, heavy cake. The cream... More
