Namlı Gurme

A perfect breakfast buffet includes fresh olives, handmade jams, clotted cream with honeycomb, bread, and cheese at the Namlı Gurme in Karaköy. The brand's marketplace-café idea also allows you to purchase the olives, cheese, cold meats, and jams you've just consumed.

Namlı Gurme, unlike most other Turkish breakfast establishments, does not have set breakfast menus, so you may pick and choose what you want from what they have on offer on any given day. The location, just off the Galata Bridge, is ideal for Sultanahmet visitors; a substantial brunch here will have you ready to explore the historical peninsula or the colorful Beyoğlu neighborhood, both of which are only 10–15-minute walk away.


Try to snag a table on the balcony for one of Istanbul’s best brunches with a beautiful view of the Bosporus. The menu has everything covered, including scrambled eggs with crispy bacon to pancakes with fresh fruits and maple syrup. For something a little more Turkish try the Mangerie Breakfast spread.

The specially-made bread in the place, which sees Bebek Bay and Kandilli, is both diverse and delicious. In addition to the classics, you can try different flavors such as mascarpone pear toast and focaccia toast at Mangerie.

In addition, the content of your breakfast plate is not fixed. You decide what will be on your breakfast plate. You can also enjoy these delicacies from 8 in the morning to midnight.


One of the only places in Istanbul where you can relax in a garden from breakfast to evening cocktails, Backyard is especially popular for its weekend brunch. Whether you’re in the mood for Eggs Benedict, pancakes, a toasted sandwich with prosciutto and mozzarella, or just granola with fresh fruits, Backyard has something for every preference.

From various cheeses to olives, from jams to honey cream, shared breakfast with plenty of ingredients, a delicious option called brunch mix, which includes flavors such as avocado, poached eggs, Ezine cheese, cherry tomatoes with basil. Tea and coffee have their place on the menu, albeit separately. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are also among the options that suit the brunch menu.

On top of that, all meals get prepared with seasonal and organic ingredients.

Galata Konak Cafe

Visitors may have their Turkish breakfast and tea while taking in the magnificent views of Galata Tower at Galata Konak Cafe. The location is 5 minutes down the hill from the Galata Tower.

The Galata Tower, the Bosporus, and its bridge, the Golden Horn, the Galata Bridge, connecting the historical peninsula with the city's five hills, Topkapı Palace, Valide Sultan Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Süleymaniye Mosque provide an impressive combination of tranquillity and a magnificent 360-degree view.
