Cihangir makes me a little romantic and a little sad. So many times I want to go out and take some photos in Cihangir. I also can not leave Cihangir because it has a mood that feels me like a poetess.
If you are walking around Cihangir, you should see Symrna and maybe sit for a coffee or a fresh juice. Of course I can not write poems there but I love spending some time there because it feels like I am home. Their concept with armchairs and walls makes me wanna sing a romantic song. I can easily say that I only drink their latte, did not try their food and just read my book.
For example you’ve seen some great sightseeings in Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia) and went to Taksim for a beer, coffee or something else. If the time is like 20:00 and you feel tired after this long day, just visit Smyrna and drink a coffee while sitting in their nice armchairs. 🙂
Their price can be a little high compared to the other places but it’s worth it with their ambiance and watching people walking by.
