You must visit this place to have some middle eastern desserts! Delicious!! Baklava is fantastic, but I also tried some things I've never eaten before and it was all worth the calories!

Habibah has several branches in Amman, many locals tend to tell you that the one in the old downtown is the best. But honestly they belong to the same owner so they are all the same. The place is well known for its sweets, but to be more precise, it is their Kunfaa that cant be compared. They have 2... More

The kanafeh is so delicious (the creaminess of the cheese, the crunch of crust, the sweetness of the syrup and talk about the smell) and worth having after shopping from the bazzar. Advice is you better take something to drink (like fresh juice or bottle of water). Make sure to try both kind of kanafeh get the large portion which... More

Cheap sweets eaten in an alleyway surrounded by locals? Count me in-- even if I wasn't a big fan of the cheesy aspect of the knafeh, I'd still recommend this to anyone with a sweet tooth and an interest in trying something new.

I did not go to the Habiba myself, however, I received the Knafeh as from friends. The Knafeh is so good, it is one of the best I have tasted in my life!! In terms of price and service I can not say anything as I never visited the place. For tourists, tasting this Knafeh and other Jordanian and Arabic-Mediterranean... More

Our driver suggested to go there, and we were not disappointed. You get in this small road just after the Arab Bank, and you can't miss it, because there are always people eating outside. You pay at the cashier, and get one of this amazing products. They are famous for the kunafa, a typical cake from Palestine with fresh sheep... More

There are not many things more satisfying than a good Knafe after dinner. Stand in line, get a slice of knafe drizzled with sugar syrup, sit outside and enjoy the glory with the local Jordanians. This is the sweet life!

The sweets (don't know the name anymore) we bought here were just delicious! We bought the same sweets in some other places, but they weren't as tasteful as here! Really worth passing by there.
