“If you are local you can speak and mingle, I am not one hence I was just sitting on a table alone with a cup for coffee, tried talking to a guy, but he did not even bother, felt left out. These cafes are worth going with a date or friend not alone, waste of time and paid double for a coffee.“

“The place in itself is nothing special but ok. I went with a friend and realized that there was no beer on the menu so we asked if there was any beer sold in the premises and there was a draft beer available.
We took two. They were not cold at all but didn't want to complain. After we finished, we asked for the bill and to our surprise the guy charged us $7 or €6 or 25 Turkish lira PER BEER!!! When outside in other cafes it's usually less than half this price. Awfully expensive for warm beer in a not so beautiful or special place.
We've been ripped off and we learned to never order anything without asking for the price first. Restaurant people have the tendency to rip off in Istanbul unfortunately.“
