Şark Kahvesi

Cafe in Bazaar District

The Şark's arched ceiling betrays its former existence as part of a bazaar street – years ago some enterprising kahveci (coffeehouse owner) walled up several sides and turned it into a cafe. Located on one of the bazaar's major thoroughfares, it's popular with both stallholders and tourists, who enjoy tea, coffee (Turkish, espresso and filter) or a cold drink.
