Lonely Planet review for Kafe Ara
This casual cafe is named after its owner, legendary local photographer Ara Güler. It occupies a converted garage with tables and chairs spilling out into a wide laneway opposite the Galatasaray Lycée and serves an array of well-priced salads, sandwiches and Turkish staples such as köfte and sigara böreği (pastries filled with cheese and potato). No alcohol.
