  • Vefa is an Istanbul landmark. Boza isn't for everyone, but the shop is worth a visit regardless! If you do want to have some boza don't forget to buy some warm leblebi from the shop across the street to go with it. :)
  • I'm not certain if the ice cream or the atmosphere is better. Truly, a great place to step back in time, relax and enjoy yourself. Located in a traditional neighborhood with many small shops and restaurants. I highly recommend visiting this lovely establishment.
  • Love boza! Dont forget to grab some leblebi))
  • Very authentic place. Local drink called "Boza" served here. It goes very well with "Leblebi" (roasted chickpea) which is sold right accross the place. This little soar and sweet drink is populer and consumed by Turkish people in ages. This is must go place and must taste place if you are first comer to Istanbul.
  • Historical place to drink "boza". Recommend for every travellers.
