Alperenler Café and Restaurant

Vanıköy Cad 2, Kandilli, İstanbul

Buses and minibuses pass every few minutes on their way from Üsküdar to Beykoz.

The thing here is the view and the peacefulness of the place. One of a pair of cafés midway between Vaniköy and Kandilli on the Asian shore. Easy to park if you are driving. If you are tired of scampering up and down hills, this is as close as you can to getting into a boat without getting into one. Decent typical café fare, nothing to interfere with the taxing task of watching the Bosphorus flow by. Su akar, deli bakar… – the water flows, the daft one watches…

Across the water is Bebek.
