Passion Cafe

This Passion Cafe reminds us chalets. It is located between Yenikoy, İstinye, and Tarabya. In addition, when you get there, you can go Istinye Park Shopping Center and do shopping. Its fireplace that never goes out in summer and winter, its warm decoration with wood, the rich menu designed by the owner of the place named Elvan, and the delicious desserts created by Elvan are enough to make you a regular client. The flavors that start with traditional international breakfast options are followed by various bar snacks, noodle and pasta varieties, special appetizers, sandwiches, American-style steaks, and extraordinary main dishes. Also, their desserts, especially their cheesecake, taste great. You cannot get enough of eating on the terrace in summer, at tables where you can watch the movement of Yenikoy, and in front of the fireplace burning in cold weather in winter. Weekend breakfast here is highly recommended. The prices here are not like cafes, but in a stylish restaurant like even a bit of its atmosphere.
