Kadıköy is a very crowded and popular district of Istanbul which is found in the Anatolian side. Kadıköy is the best-known place for numerous bars, cultural activities, bookshops and of course coffee shops. Also, this beautiful and colorful place is famous for the landscape of the Marmara Sea. You can sit drink a cup of tea while having a relaxing time with the view of the sea, seagulls, and ferries.
In this blog, we will share with you our favorite coffee shops that have best-roasted coffee and perfect for relaxing, reading books or having time with your friends.
Caferağa Mah. Muvakkıthane Caddesi No:16/A D:Kat:1, 34710 Kadıköy/İstanbul
This coffee shop is known for the best pour-over coffee in town. They have two shops located in Kadıköy. Our favorite is found at the entrance of Kadıköy, very near to the metro station. They also sell their own beans. They have various coffee choices with extraordinary tastes such as fruity flavor. They show us we can have a good coffee without bitterness. So if you love filter coffee or pour-over coffee such as V60, Chemex we would strongly recommend you to try their beans and have a nice cup of coffee made by the lovely staff.
P.S.: The place may be crowded in the evening.
2. toti's coffee&chocolate
Moda Caddesi Neşe Sok. No:2B Moda, 34710 Kadıköy/İstanbul
To be honest, this is my favorite of all. I really love their desserts, handmade chocolates, and hot chocolate. Also, you can have pour-over coffee with dessert. (They have discount for dessert+coffee menus) Besides, it has the best price and one of the coziest places in Kadıköy. It is not that crowded that’s why if you want to escape from overpopulation of Istanbul this is the best place to relax, to spend quality time. I strongly suggest you visit this place and try their chocolates.
P.S.: They give 1 free dessert after your 9th purchase. (Same for the coffee) Do not forget to ask for your card!
3. Guten Morgen Coffee & Sourdough
Caferağa, Fırıldak Sk. No:19, 34710 Kadıköy/İstanbul
They have awesome sandwiches. They made their own sourdough bread so sandwiches are always fresh and tasty. In my opinion, the best sandwich is the one with hummus. Besides they have really good coffee. If the weather is hot and sunny you should definitely try Cold Brew Sangria. It has fruits inside it which give the coffee a very rich aroma. It is so refreshing. Their interior design is also very simple and has the air of a German coffee shop. I hope you can visit this cute place someday.
P.S: If you can’t find a sandwich that suits your taste, you can ask to staff to create your own sandwich by choosing ingredients!
Bonus: Kamarad Coffee Roastery
Rasimpaşa, Yeldeğirmeni, Uzun Hafız Sk. 107/A, 34716 Kadıköy/İstanbul
First of all, you can order their coffee beans via their site. They can grind first-grade beans as you wish. It is the place where they roast their own coffee beans. You can see the roasting process inside of the shop. It has a few places to sit. But I bet you can’t find more fresh coffee in town than here. They roast their own beans, use their own coffee and serve them directly. Also, the prices are not expensive.
P.S: It is open only Saturday between 11 am-19 pm!!!
