Since I am a freelancer living in Istanbul, I've tried many cafes that I can work at. I love to eat food and drink a good coffee in the meantime. So decided to create a blog post about it. Hope you find it helpful! 
Fern Cafe
The most comfortable cafe to work at. Great coffee and food selection on breakfast and lunch. Lots of vegan options. We've tried more than half of the menu and everything we ate was good. They make the best oat latte in Istanbul. Vegan toast and chocolate chip cookie are my favorite.
Location // Address: Fenerbahçe, Lalezar Sk. No:14, 34726 Kadıköy/İstanbul
Voi Feriye // Now changed to Cookies and Cream but same place with similar menu
Amazing Bosporus view with wide space, great food and great coffee. Their avocado toast is my favorite. I usually drink soy latte here.
Location // Address: Yıldız, Avrupa Yakası, 34349 Beşiktaş/İstanbul
Klar Coffee Co.
Great coffee and food selection, and they roast the coffee in the shop so it smells extra amazing. Also you might saw this place in my page, I've created their branding and packaging design.
Location // Address: Caddebostan Mah. Ömerpaşa Sk. Osnaz Apt, D:No:5/6, 34728 Kadıköy/İstanbul
Mankind Coffee & Eatings 
Great interior design with lots of artwork, good amount of food and beverage choices. Our favorite is their white chocolate brownie.
Location // Address: Caddebostan, Ethem Efendi Cd. No:3B, 34447 Kadıköy/İstanbul
Wide space with lots of natural light and amazing interior design. Nice food but I don't like their coffee. They also sell ceramics. Lots of great magazine you can read while spending time too.
Location // Address: Bomonti silahşör caddesi Yeniyol Sk. No:2 now, Silahşör Cd., 34440 Şişli/İstanbul
Grandma Suadiye
Amazing variety on the dessert and food, they don't have oat milk but soy latte is good. We usually use the big table to work, chairs are comfortable.

Kronotrop Feneryolu
Location // Address: Fenerbahçe Mahallesi Operatör Cemil Topuzlu Caddesi Sorgut APT, D:no:12/A, 34726 Kadıköy/İstanbul
Small cafe and flower shop with limited seats, just sitting there makes you happy since you are seeing great flowers on each corner. Even though their menu is small they offer vegan milk and dessert options.
Location // Address: Fenerbahçe Mahallesi, Hacı Mehmet Efendi Sk. No:33/B, 34726 Kadıköy/İstanbul
Story Coffee Yeldegirmeni
Nice place with outdoor space.

Cafe Life 1890 (formerly Cooklife Balat)
Cooklife's first location, it was our favorite back then, the. they move to Bomonti a different cafe opened in same location. Still a good place if you like to check out Balat and have a drink.
