Van Kahvaltı Evi

Defterdar Yokuşu No. 52/A, Cihangir

One of the most popular breakfast places in the city, not just Cihangir, Van Kahvaltı Evi serves unbeatable kahvaltı tabagi (breakfast plates) using produce sourced from local farmers and even some from Van itself. Don’t let the rather gloomy interior sway you – the food is lovely. Some interesting options such as eggplant pancakes and kavut (a concoction of roasted wheat flour with honey and walnuts) adds flair to the standard breakfast fare.

Nearby Altı Café is another great choice for breakfast.
