Visit a Love CaféIn Istanbul, a great view is as essential to a good meal as service and food presentation. Aşşk Kahve, in Kuruçeşme, has an advantage, with a photogenic location on the Bosphorus and a setting that feels positively Mediterranean. Its name is a derivation of the Turkish word aşk, which means love, and love is put into all the house-made food and juices on the menu. The menu leans toward healthy and fresh, with lush green and grain salads and an all-day breakfast with their own granola, but there are pizzas and cocktails as well if you want to indulge. The Nişantaşı location is cozy on a bad-weather day.
