What's it? A place for breakfast in Besiktas.
Why go? To try the English and Dutch breakfasts.
Besiktas' famous streets for breakfast now has a new inhabitant. Tiny Bean is a small, sympathetic establishment that offers a range of English and Dutch breakfast options. Umut Akand, the owner and operator, educated himself in cinema and has worked in his own sector for a while, but laster moved away from his field. During his two years as a bartender in London, he gained experience in different aspects of space design and management. When he returned to Turkey, he wanted to open his own place. His family helps customers to provide quality and healthy ingredients. For example, his mother bought forty chickens and placed them at his uncle's farm. They receive their butter from a woman in Mürefte and support local production.
If you prefer Dutch breakfast (36 TL) your ingredients come on pancakes. Red, green and yellow peppers, sugar potatoes, eye eggs… English breakfast (38 TL) with a delicious sauce prepared with pink tomatoes from Çanakkale. The use of rosemary, which gives the flavor of chestnut mushroom, has also won the admiration of its customers. You can choose pork or beef products for both breakfast alternatives. Turkish breakfast (35 TL) has menemen, cheese and olives, as well as the must-have surprises such as wrapping. If you don't have time to sit down and have breakfast early in the morning, we recommend grabbing baguette sandwiches. Cenk Çikla, who works at the venue, is also a tour manager of Ajda Pekkan and she is also one of the reasons you smile when you're at Tiny Bean with a friendly attitude.
