Coffeehouses in Istanbul are generally rough-and- ready places. Elegance is reserved not for the décor but for the pastries full of nuts and honey, with wonderful names such as ‘nightingale’s nests’ and ‘lady’s lips’. Traditional coffeehouses are also the place for reading newspapers, playing backgammon and enjoying a hubble-bubble. Disajikan dalam gelas kecil, kopi tradisional Turki “sehitam neraka, sekeras kematian dan semanis cinta”, begitu menurut pepatah kuno. Kedai-kedai kopi di Istanbul umumnya sederhana. Daya tariknya bukan pada dekorasi, melainkan kue-kue isi kacang dan madu dengan nama-nama cantik, seperti “sarang burung bulbul” (bülbül yuvasi) dan “bibir wanita” (dilber dudağı). Kedai kopi tradisional juga tempat yang cocok untuk membaca koran, bermain backgammon dan menikmati hookah.
