Without a doubt, breakfast is a favorite meal for most people. The happiness of being at the same table with loved ones, especially on Sunday mornings, is priceless. The rich structure of Turkish cuisine is, of course, reflected in the breakfasts. When the long conversations are combined with fresh teas, we can’t get enough of breakfast. However, we spend this meal without having breakfast or eating small meals during the week while working at high tempos. That’s why people dream of enjoying weekend breakfasts insatead of short breakfasts on weekdays.

On the European side of İstanbul, there are many places that will make the breakfast of Istanbulites more delicious and enjoyable. All of them come across as places that are delicious and have different atmospheres. We have compiled breakfast places with wonderful views and unique tastes for you to start the day better. How would you like to have a pleasant and delicious breakfast with these breakfast people on the European side?
