We been each both times we visited Famagusta and its definitely worth going to. Downstairs is the huge bakery, with turkish delight in all forms and colours, but also pastries and cakes. It's possible to order a pastry in the bakery at the back and have it served at the tables. For the café, I'd recommend going upstairs and try... More

Lovely location with an Ottomen setting. Service is fast. All the ice creams are delicious! I strongly advise you to eat the Burma tatlīsī...absolutely fabulous!!!

We came in here for a mid morning coffee and some nibbles. It's a lovely setting right opposite the wall and in an area that is great to walk around. There is a fabulous looking patisserie on the side of the restaurant ( we didn't have any cakes though) but we did have some local pasties with our coffee which... More

Great position in the town, lively atmosphere, great range of pastries and ice creams, friendly staff who mainly speak good English. A must do if you are staying in or near old Famagusta.

Don't go! Nothing is special and fresh; additionally expensive! We ordered "ekmek kadayifi" than we learned that it was not a traditional one. They used cream instead of cheese and almond. Turkish delights was not fresh but ice cream is ok.

Arrived there totally by chance and we were amazed by the beautifull patisserie-I would have liked to taste everything. If you want a taste and a look to what is called-turkish delights- you cannot miss this one. The choice of desserts is embarassing!

It's the best pastry shop in the Northern Cyprus. Make a full load of baklava but don't stop to eat their food, unless you order their kunefe which is sublime!

Sadly, another disappointing cake (in terms of flavour). These cakes look like works of art! They really do, shape, colour, dimensions, design etc etc etc. Yet when it comes to enjoying the thing it falls short. This has happened 3 times. The first cake was out of this world and I said it was better than any Parisian Gateaux alas... More

We are not great fan of sweet stuff and there is not much but a variety of sweets. Not sure if it deserves the ranking as a restaurant.

Really cool building and decor with three eating areas: upstairs, downstairs plus a snug lounge. Liked the amazing range of cakes and sweets as well as the general ambiance of the place. I could have spent all day in there reading a book and snacking randomly! No dislikes. I would love to go back there.
