Champagne Brunch in Istanbul: Konsolos
I am often asked where to questions when it comes to Istanbul. And one of the key topics is always about breakfast…I have my usual suspects like Assk Kahve and Lucca but time to time I enjoy spicing it up and discovering new venues. Here is my latest venture…Located in the ever popular Sishane/Pera neighbourhood, Konsolos offers champagne brunches on Sundays accompanied with a lovely Jazz trio. I liked the fact that they offer a good range of breakfast cocktails and they do have innovative breakfast dishes created from local herbs, ingredients. The only complaint I have is small portions. I enjoyed the food but I left the place almost hungry. Service was friendly and interiors were luxuriously chic. It reminded me of Beach Babylon Blanket in Nothing Hill. If you go try pineapple bellini and eggs florentine with Turkish herbs. Really good.
Cool factor: Sippping fresh fruit cocktails accompanied with lovely jazz trio
