    Mellow hipster cafe in the nicest possible sense, one of the front runners of what is now a bustling neighborhood cafe scene. Good service, excellent Julius Meinl coffee.

    Karabatak Karaköy🍰Julius Meinl is a cool and funky café that features retro-style décor and an atmosphere that makes you want to spend many hours here chatting away with friends over a cup of coffee

    my favourite coffee place in Istanbul! good coffee, good music, great atmosphere and decor, and though it's in a lively area, it's not as crowded and chaotic as the rest of the city! we loved it!

    Imagine for a minute, you get out of life and start watching it like a movie. This is the feeling you might have as you sip your Cafe Melange. Replenishing and peaceful place.

    Nice location, good coffee, still the staff takes your drinks off the table in a hurry without asking and letting you enjoy them till the last drop! (Sometimes half way through)

    Nice location with great food and drinks in a recently reconstructed neighbourhood. Staff is nice, prices are great, outdoor seating is available. Always crowded and busy.

    Wiener melange 😍. Very cool place for early night chill if you don't mind smokers around and occasional street vendors passing by.

    Karaköy is a mysterious little neighbourhood at the water, make sure to have a coffee stop somewhere here. Karabatak has all sorts of coffee!

    coffee is great and so is the menu, but terribly overpriced, servis isnt great, but atmosphere is perfect to get away from busy istanbul streets and find the feel of a real coffee shop

    Combination of old European grandeur and Ottoman appeal: could have been the early days of republic yet it is the up and coming coffee shop at Karaköy by Viennese coffee brand Julius Meinl

    Coffee is very good. Pity they don't have iced coffee without syrups and cream. At 5 TL, water is very expensive and the food is so-so for the price. Great place to caffeinate and meet with friends.

    Limited food options and not really customisable, but I do like my cheese and veal ham toast (which is essentially a sandwich) and the coffee is pretty good.

    It has evolved the perception of aesthetics and shifted expectations sneakingly. But it's much like a "l'art pour l'art" dont touch museum. In my humble opinion, society needs a living museum as well.

    All special Vieanese coffees are commendable. Try Franziskaner if you like cream... con alcohol... get the Biedermeier.

    If u like dark and Bohem places, u must try here. There is a hipster style in this coffee shop. However, staff is not smiling or do not show hospitality usually
