Cafe in Sultanahmet & Around

This bygone hippie-trail hang-out, once known to hippies worldwide as the Pudding Shop, now substitutes bland food in place of its former menu of psychedelic music and hash chillums. Nonetheless, you may wish to drop by for a çay to view the period photos on the tabletops, menus and walls recalling the eatery's halcyon days.

Notes stuck in the window by enthusiastic tourists attempt to revive that spirit of old.
