Şark Kahvesi

Serving Turkish coffee for more than 50 years

Sark Kahvesi

Şark Kahvesi is located in the Grand Bazaar on Yağlıkçılar Caddesi and has been in operation since 1959. It is a casual, old style kahvehane (café) where you can get really good tea or Turkish coffee at a good price. If you consider yourself a connoisseur of Turkish coffee you will appreciate the fact that the coffee they serve here is actually brewed on a coal grill following the traditions. Many university students frequent this local so if you are chatty you may end up meeting locals here, as well.

Open from 9am to 7pm daily except Sundays.

We like: Sade Türk kahvesi (plain Turkish coffee).
