A café entirely made from recycled materials

In central Beşiktaş, in a small side street, far away from the bustling crowd, there is a place that can take you on a journey to creativity and inspiration, food and arts, ecology and innovation.

Its name is KafeNa and it is the very first and only café and arts place in Turkey made entirely from recycled materials!

Looking somewhat shy from the outside, one might overlook its rich inside world. But once you step inside, and look around, you will immediately notice a very different vibe.

KafeNa is very cozy

Each wall has a story to tell and each piece of furniture has a long history before it reached this lovely, special place in Beşiktaş.

Bike, not buses!

Its owner Özgür, gave new and very charming life to an old and rustling shop that he found 2 years ago, and that he decided to turn it into something really special. With his own hands and with the help of a couple of friends, the entire place was completely restored and rebuilt. All the materials and objects used inside were found on the streets, given as a gift from friends, or created there on the spot.

The result is truly amazing.

The café has a relaxing friendly atmosphere where it is easy to feel at home. If you are hungry, you will be served home made vegetarian food for a very cheap price. If you don’t feel like eating, you can just enjoy your tea or coffee and take some inspiration from the interesting artifacts around you.

KafeNa is more than just a café though. They organize all kinds of art and educational activities – from language, music and dance lessons, to film screenings, yoga classes, computer programs and even theatre plays. It is in the basement where most of these activities take place, where a whole new world is to be found.

KafeNa does not go after profit. That’s why all the courses and meal prices are exceptionally economical. Its aim is to offer a creative space to innovative people and make them feel welcome regardless of who they are and where they come from.
