Fragrant Coffee & Pungent Smoke
I’d love to tell you that this great old place is an imperial survivor, a corner of old Constantinople that time forgot, but of course that’s not the case. It’s a revival: the owner’s idea of what it was like back then.
More or less. Let’s face it, the place is cleaner and more attractive, the coffee better, the nargiles and carpets in better shape than they ever were in Ottoman times. Women and foreigners are now welcome.
All the better. All the better!
