You can buy the Turkish delight, Baklava, and other deserts as presents downstairs and they have a nice cafe were you can sit and order upstairs. friendly staff in a busy place. I rather shop here than the Bazar, which doesn't seem hygienic at all.

Well worth the trip. Especially if you can get a seat by the window upstairs. Tea is tasty and a great selection of baklava and Turkish delight.
