Karabatak

Perfect cafe in Karakoy, Istanbul
In Istanbul's Karakoy neighborhood near the docks of the Golden Horn and Galata Bridge, hipster cafes and art galleries are beginning to outnumber the neighborhood's long-standing industrial shops and hidden churches. Karabatak (aka Julius Meinl), named for the Bosphorus-diving birds, is one of those perfect spots to while away with beautiful design, interesting people-watching, and great coffee. Contrast the liberal artsy clientele with the ultra-nationalist Turkish Orthodox church next door.
