One of the latest cafes to open in Sultanahmet is Karafırın on Akbıyık Caddesi (Street). It's part of a larger chain of stores in Turkey specializing in baked goods and cafe-style refreshments.
Check out the bakery section full of tasty treats, then browse the displays of "only in Istanbul" gifts ideas that appeal to all ages. With all the color and choice in the store, you may feel like Charlie in the chocolate factory trying to decide what to buy. The baklava, mini tarts, cakes, chocolate, tulumba, börek (savoury pastry rolls) and poğaça (baked bread) are all very inviting on the counter, so too is the lemonata, strawberry lemonade, rose sherbet, freshly brewed tea and Italian coffee. Karafırın is great for a coffee and cake break but also has a menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
