33 Best Cafes In Istanbul Every Coffee Lover Has To Visit

The coffee culture is an existential part of Istanbul’s existence and a very important part of everyday life in the City with Seven Hills. Istanbul is a city of sacred tradition and coffee is certainly one of them. As you’ll be able to see in this post, there are many incredible cafes in Istanbul and there’s a little bit of something for everyone here, regardless of your tastes and preferences. But before showing you which are some of the most famous cafes in Istanbul, let’s start from the beginning…

Coffee Culture In Istanbul

best cafes in istanbul

Istanbul is the city with the longest coffee history in Europe. Locals in Istanbul were brewing and drinking coffee at least a century before coffee beans were even introduced to the rest of the continent. With the fall of Constantinople coffee beans and the ancient tradition of coffee, brewing was introduced to Istanbul when the Ottomans took over. 

Istanbul is famous for its Turkish coffee, a method of coffee preparation that traces its origin back to the 5th century AD. The coffee is mixed with water and “boiled” by placing the pot in hot sand until a thin layer of foam is formed on the top. Traditionally, coffee in Istanbul is served alongside a glass of water and a sugar cube or a Turkish delight. 

When you finish your coffee, you’ll inevitably notice traces and figures in the coffee ground sludge which brings us to another important part of coffee culture in Istanbul- fortune telling. The figures that might appear in the mug have a meaning and many Turkish women know how to interpret them, supposedly with a decent “hit rate” in regards to one’s past, present, and future.

But if you don’t like coffee and don’t believe in fortune telling, worry not; the cafes in Istanbul have a lot more to offer…

Tea Culture In Istanbul

Coffee or tea is a subject of eternal debate among Istanbul locals. From what we could notice, both tea and coffee are equally popular and widely consumed across the country. Many shops in Turkey will greet you with either (complimentary) tea or coffee (it’s a welcoming gesture and you don’t have to buy anything even if you drink it) and it’s the same when you go to someone’s home.

There are many varieties of tea that can be found in Istanbul but the most popular one is the black tea which is most often served in a small glass that resembles a shot glass. The tea is usually very strong and concentrated and is a great morning drink. Some say it’s even more efficient than coffee when it comes to dealing with sleepiness or drowsiness.

What an incredible city with perhaps the strongest coffee culture on earth. Amazing how the coffee and tea game in Istanbul is unlike anywhere else. I loved seeing folks enjoy their little cups when we spent a month there a few years ago.
