- What’s On
Chocoholics head straight to Lebosi, which makes its hand-made chocolates on the premises. Frankly we’d be happy to fill up on their artisan chocolates for lunch, but that’s probably not a good idea. Instead, come in to get a sugar fix while exploring Kuzguncuk’s İcadiye Caddesi.
Just down the road is the wonderful Kastamonu Köy Pazarı, at No 34, where you can pick up Black Sea produce. For a sugar fix of a different kind, visit Divan Keyfi, at No 38, for a lavender or tamarind ice. After the pick-me up, it’s time to explore the neighbourhood’s art scene – pop into Harmony Art Gallery, at No 42, and the Pita Café, the undisputed hub of Kuzguncuk’s art scene, where you can also grab a proper lunch.
