Zeytin Ağacı Cafe
Time Out says
Originally established to draw in the Nişantaşı crowd for lunch, Zeytin Ağacı Café has built a solid reputation as one of the best healthy dining joints in Istanbul throughout the nine years it’s been in business. We even gave it our ‘Best Light Food’ award in 2007’s Seventh Time Out Istanbul Miller Eating & Drinking Awards. Just as you won’t find any red meat or fried dishes served here, you’ll get to taste wholesome flavours cooked with virgin olive oils brought from Ayvalık. These olive oils, as well as other ingredients used at Zeytin Ağacı Café, are available for purchase in the small shop located within the eatery. This season’s favourite flavours include parsley veggie patties, stuffed grape leaves with sour cherries and ovenbaked vegetable gratin.
