This is the only original brand of Güllüoğlu "baklava" (turkish traditional sweet). If you want to try it; should be the only place! One piece of baklava (should be enough as its quiet heavy) to accompain your "çay" (chai, turkish black tea) or your turkish coffee will be great. Easy to access as itsnt very far away from tourist attractions.... More

They do not need to advertise. Every taxi In Istanbul knows where it is and recommends it. The Baklava is superb. Some may find it too sweet but I like it that way. I was told to have it with vanilla ice cream but without ice cream it is still better. They are generous enough to let you taste as... More

Very delicious typical turkish sweets! You can also drink a tea and eat a sweet there! Prices not really low, but it is one of the oldest patisseries in Istanbul!
