The House Café

Atiye Sokak No 10/1, Nişantaşı, Istanbul

Mon–Thurs: 8.00–1.00; Fri–Sat: 8.00–2.00; Sun: 8.00–00.00 (midnight)

The original The House Café branch was opened in 2002 in an old Nişantaşı apartment building by the same group which owns a luxury hotel chain.

The chain of cafés is perhaps best known for its terraces (whether at the front or back or both) where a sea of Nişantaşı locals in sunglasses get their brunch or limonata fix. There is an interesting selection of herbal teas, coffees, fruity cocktails, some tasty light meals and some more substantial offerings – most dishes are fusions of Turkish and European cuisines. Not all branches offer alcohol such as the other Teşvikiye branch at Teşvikiye Caddesi 146, as it housed in an annex of a mosque.

Other popular branches are at İstiklal Caddesi 163 in Galatasaray and on the branch on the waterfront in Ortaköy.
