After a long day, wouldn’t you want to sit down, relax and have a cup of coffee in the best third wave coffee shops in Kadikoy? These cute and modern shops use single origin beans and innovative brewing methods to prepare high-quality coffee. That is what third wave coffee actually stands for and that is how these coffee shops managed to distinguish themselves from larger chains. With their cozy/friendly atmosphere and their amazing decoration, these coffee shops gain more and more customers every day.
As the most important part is freshness for the coffee’s flavors some of Istanbul’s new coffee shops have begun to roast their beans in small batches in the shop. With roasting machines inside the store, they have a steady supply of deliciously aromatic coffee that you can enjoy right there or take away. I personally recommend you take your time, sit inside and actually enjoy the atmosphere.
This is a tiny coffee shop based in Kadıköy but don’t be fooled by the size. The coffees and desserts are to die for!

2- Walter’s Coffee Roastery
This coffee shop gives us the concept from its name. Walter’s coffee is a Breaking Bad themed, third wave coffee shop. With its decoration, baristas dressed in yellow overalls and Breaking Bad quote T-shirts it definitely separates itself from other shops. You can also dress up and take a photo or two inside.
