Features
Foodie magnet, Notable chef, Local haunt, Good breakfast spot

At this postage-stamp-size café a couple of blocks from the Bosporus, chef Didem Senol's light touch and fresh flavors shine bright on the menu. The salad selection is not to be missed—roasted cauliflower with pomegranate, chickpea with smoked eggplant—nor are the light plates (think: lemony poached sea bass with mint and parsley-flecked bulgur salad). Senol's baking chops are on full display with giant, airy meringues, fudgy chocolate-peanut-butter sandwich cookies, and savory rosemary-cherry scones. Eat at one of three outdoor tables, or carry your goodies to the nearby Bebek Park on the water.
