Cafe in Tunel

I would like to invite you to my favorite cafe in Istanbul today.
It is in Tunel ( Taksim ), they serve the most delicious desert and cafes there.
Has a very unic ambiance, there is a couple of antique shops next to the cafe. In fact, the owner of the cafe owns also the antique shops. There are lots of old items around.
And since it is 15-16 centigrade today, we can sit outside and enjoy the nice weather.
Are you coming?

I'm there! I love cafes. I love sitting in, having a coffee and reading my book. In Tuzla, we like to sit outside, drink coffe and watch the world go by.

Well I just finished my second mai tai in Wailea, so yes, I think your cafe would be perfect for dessert and coffee.
Looks very charming!

Humans were meant to live outside, hence the popularity of beach communities, outdoor cafes....I like the metal work on the chairs.

Tomorrow, it will be 37°C in Adelaide, so I will be difinitely having Turkish coffee with you in beautiful Taksim, my favourite area in Istanbul. I need to buy some more summer clothes, ride the trams and browse those grand antique shops. Let's see more of this lovely place.

Thanks for the invitation! A coffee would be great. How about some muffins too, like the ones you usually make!
It seems a very cosy place!

What's the name of this cafe?

Anonymous said...

OYA ,
This cafe is my favourite, too. If I am not mistaken , this cafe is called Cafe Tunel.I used to go there all the time with friends when I lived in Istanbul. Now, I am thousands of miles away from Istanbul in Washington, DC :(

Oya said...

Anonymous, most people know this place as Cafe Tunel, but it is Kave:)Since it is in Tunel, I think it is ok to call it Cafe Tunel. I love this place very much too. I am glad, I can bring some of Istanbul into your sitting room in DC :)

Seda said...

Congrats on the blog...It looks lovely. Taksim has always been one of my favorite places. By the way, I just stated blogging about Istanbul. The concept is little different than this... If you wanna visit, here it is
