  Simdi Cafe
by mehbos37

I love discovering new cafes in my favourite area,Asmalimescit...This chic,quiet cafe is called Simdi (Now) and it is the first floor of a very trendy old Pera building..
The interior is well decorated and so much relaxing than having your coffee in Markiz Passage:-)
If you like to chill out and enjoy meeting local intellectuals it is a nice place to go..
The owner is a cool guy who lived several years abroad and his flat is also in the same building..

Favorite Dish: I went there a few times and due to my limited time I did not try the food,but the coffees and fresh juices are excelllent.
It has a very tidy kithchen and good cook,so, the food should be good..

Address: Asmalimescit
Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Very close to Markiz Passage,take the first right from Markiz to Pera Palas..You will notice a big clock at the corner..You are there!
