I have difficulty describing this place in a couple of sentences. Thankfully they call themselves a “Floral Cafe”, which says a lot about them. Misk is one of my favorite places in Istanbul, because I have a huge crush on their beautiful flower arrangements and sense of decoration.
The place is located in Resitpasa — the area itself is not very touristic and is full of hidden treasures even for locals.
Misk Istanbul is both a flower design studio and a cafe. Having a snack among flowers and candles feels like a meditation. As I was enjoying my coffee, I couldn’t take my eyes off the eye candy I was surrounded with. You can taste the blueberry pancake or smoked turkey bagels, depending on the mood.
If I will have been staying longer than 5 days at a different place, I can’t stop myself putting some flowers in a vase in my hotel room or vacation rental to bring me joy and make myself at home. So if you are of a like mind, Misk is a very good option for flower or souvenir shopping – they also have a lot of nicely designed objects and products to take away home with you.
