Minoa Bookstore & Cafe
Being constantly on the lookout for great new bookstores in Istanbul, we discovered Minoa Bookstore & Café in Beşiktaş. Lacking the generic interior décor often found in the much larger coffee shop/bookstore chains of Istanbul, the independent Minoa offers its loyal bookworms a place of sanctuary and a quiet corner to sit in beautifully designed surroundings while sipping on good-quality coffee, watching the world go by, or keeping their eyes riveted on the latest novel.
With a huge library of books to sift through, you could quite easily spend the whole day getting lost among the shelves. And there's a good solid variety of English-language books, covering topics from art history to city guides, so browsers won’t be disappointed.
Those on their way to work or to meet a friend shouldn't pass by without checking out their breakfast menu, served with bakery-fresh bread. Or if granola’s more your thing, you can have it served with homemade yogurt and fresh fruit.
Whether looking for a place to work from, hang out with friends, or simply read Orhan Pamuk’s latest novel in English while devouring a creamy latte, Minoa is where it is. So grab your laptop and while away the hours.
