Istanbul breakfast advice sought? Combining Mandabatmaz?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a great breakfast in Istanbul? Not necessarily too elaborate although we have no problem with elaborate breakfasts! We're staying in Beyoglu and went to Van Kahvalti Evi this morning-we enjoyed it but weren't wowed.

We'd be happy with great simit or another breakfast item and a great coffee. But where to buy the breakfast item in and around Beyoglu? We loved Mandabatmaz this evening and will go back in a heartbeat but not sure if they allow you to bring something to eat and they don't seem to offer food. Kaymacksi Pando sounds super but is a bit too far for breakfast and we'll have to go at tea time instead. Any advice greatly appreciated!
