Great place for a coffee and baklava!

As this place is famous not much need be said except that it lives up to the reputation given both by guide books and tour operators. The food is a joy to look at and tastes wonderful. We visited two times: once in the afternoon and another time late evening. All tables outside were busy... read more

I went to the restaurant in Sirkeci and the smaller shop in Eminonu to pick up some sweets to take home. The staff in Eminonu in particular were so friendly and helpful. i was there first thing in the morning and you could appreciate that the shop was very much used by local Istanbulites for their breakfast or morning coffee....

This place is so famous that there are always lines of people trying to get a table so they can enjoy the wonderful selection of sweets accompanied by (what else) Turkish coffee. The items on the menu are as delicious as they look and certainly warrant an "excellent". The staff members, on the other hand, are so rushed that the... More

The baklava with walnuts or pistachios, the Turkish Delight, and many other sweets and desserts are a real treat. The quality lives up to the claim of its ancestry. This dessert outlet started in the 1800s! It is also a good treat for taking it away for friends.

Beautifully presented shop with a delicious array of Turkish Delight and backlava. They encourage you to taste test until you are on the verge of a sugar coma! Their prices are very reasonable, and not overpriced like some stores (mainly in the Grand Bazaar). They will also "wrap for travel" so you can take your baked goods home through Customs.

Delicious. Everything here is delicious. Prepare for diabetic ketoacidosis, and prepare to come again. You will enjoy Turkish puddings, every variety of baklava, and Turkish delight along with a steaming cup of Turkish coffee. Well worth a visit. PS - sit upstairs and watch the crazy traffic below as trams, busses, cars, bikes and pedestrians merge seamlessly through the craziest... More

It is reassuring to see that outside the UK there are still many places where desserts and sweets are sold independently. This place has the greatest variety of Turkish specialties and a very nice atmosphere.

I literally still dream about the things I ate this place. I went every single night of my trip to Istanbul. The wait staff laughed a little at how much dessert I ate there but I don't care at all. Also, incidentally, I was afraid to try Turkish delight because my visual take on the texture was a turn off... More

It is situated on Taksim Square, and you can drink tea or coffee and eat delicious cakes sitting on the table right on the pavement. It's well known cafe&confectionery, but not so expensive. Strongly recommended!

We chances upon their store walking around after our Bosphorus cruise. We also tried other baklava places but this is the best. Right before going to the airport for the flight back home we got 10 boxes with about 10 pieces each for friends and family. So happy they had one right by the Taksim Square monument. Don't bother trying... More
