  Cistern Cafe
by hekate

When you visit Yerebatan Sarnici (Basilica Cistern) Museum on your way out you will see the Cistern Cafe. It is actually inside of the museum, so you could have a cup of coffee, tea or whatever while you enjoy the beautiful sight and the enchanting atmosphere of the Basilica Cistern.

I bet it would be a good option to have your coffee there in a hot summer day :)))

Favorite Dish: Well I had just a cup of cacao, I think... it was good :)
