Istanbul Part 2

After a great day ticking off the main sights, on day 2 we took it easy and wandered around the local area of Beyoglu.

We then stopped off for Turkish tea and breakfast at Naif in Karaköy. This was a really pretty place which was open to the street and great for people watching.

However this place was quickly eclipsed the next day when we visited the Van Kahvalti Evi Cafe, also in Karaköy which is a complete must for breakfast, but go on an empty stomach!
After breakfast we headed to the Rainbow Steps for some photo ops.
