One morning while we were waiting for the Sakip Sabanci Museum to open, we walked over to this little restaurant for breakfast. It turned out to be a really good choice! Mehtap Kafeterya sits right on the main street along the the Bosphorus, with great views of the water. It is a quaint, classy place, mostly painted white inside, and with what I though was the most interesting decor detail - chairs with heart-shaped backs! There is also a patio area for sitting outside, which I am sure is lovely on warmer days, but when we were there, it was freezing and the wind was quite strong. The traditional Turkish breakfast we has was delicious, and very reasonably priced, consisting of bread and honey, eggs, cucumbers, cheeses, olives, and sliced meats. And of course plenty of Turkish tea to warm us up! A great place for breakfast, especially convenient if you are visiting the museum next door.
