Finally made it to Simit & Chai Co (@simitandchaicompany) after seeing so many Instagram post this summer. This is a Turkish bakery and cafe specializing in Istanbul/Turkish bagels (simits) and teas.
With the high ceiling and not much tables, the cafe feel especially spacious with all the mismatched furniture and patch of expose brick walls
Since they sepcialize in tea, Ben decided to order tea instead of our usual coffee but wish he had ordered the Chai since the name suggest, it should be their top speciality.
The Street $5.00
~ simit + cream cheese + olive paste
Love love it, love the crispy flat texture and the large amount of sesame on top plus never though that cream cheese and olive paste goes so well together.
Simits is coated in molasses and rolled in seeds before baking
Turkish Coffee $3.50
All of baked in house and they all look delicious, would need to go back to try them all
Fist time trying Simit and love it, would definitely be back for more
