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!

The best baklavas in Istanbul, no doubt. Everytime I have a guest visiting me in Istanbul, I bring them to Karaköy Güllüoglu. The service is very nice and the baklavas are to die for (also quite expensive, but it's the price you should pay for this quality and freshness!). Tea is a bit expensive for what it is but you...

Karaköy Gulluoglu has legendary reputation and for a reason. It's baklavas are divine and you can really taste the fresh honey and pistachios. The cafe is always crowded and it can be difficult to get a a seat sometimes, but in that case just pick a box of baklava to take home with you. The only minus is that every... More

The best baclava in Istabul! Very light! We visit it every time we're in the city. Try any baclava with dondurma (local ice cream) and turkish coffee.

It was dangerous staying so close to this place! I loved how bustling it was all the time, locals and tourists alike enjoying their incredible baklava and other treats at the little cafe tables or taking boxes to go. I think I am spoiled forever for any other baklava, pistachio and walnut both. When you are finished ordering the man... More
