Like those cartoon characters that float on the air, drawn by an amazing scent? That will be you when you step inside. It just smells amazing. Roasted red pepper feta dip? Divine. Baklava? A zillion varieties--walnut or pistachio if you have allergy to one--tons to choose from. I think at this point I've sampled them all and they're just beyond.... More

I think of excuses to go here even when I don't need more olives or baklava. It is like an old world visit. They have a very good spices section here too.

I go to Sevan for years, and I do not know what I would have done without them. Great imported foods like cheese, candy, wine, bread, pastries, nuts you name it. They also have a large selection of prepared foods that they make themselves. If you are a vegetarian or like Mediterranean food Sevan is the place to go. It... More

I have been shopping at Sevan for years. Its bakery goods and Middle Eastern foods and packaged items have always been of the highest quality. The family that own and run the business are consistently pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. The prepared foods, nuts, breads, etc. are always fresh. My experience in shopping there has always been delightful and I find... More

Everything I have tried from the deli counter has been delicious! The yogurt sauce, the hummus, the "cheesy nut dip", the baklava; it's all worth the trip. I highly recommend.

Delicious food to go. A few favorites: vegetarian grape leaves, an assortment of eggplant dishes - all wonderful, Muhammara (made with walnuts, pomegranate mollasses and other good ingredients), baklava with figs and the list goes on. Have been going there for years.

This is a place I highly recommend. If you like middle east food, you have to try their dishes. When I think of Sevan's I think of good food. They have so many treats, I would say: everything you try here it's so good!

I'll start off with a note to TripAdvisor. This place is not a restaurant; it's a market. I was hungry, and stuck in Watertown, so I went to Sevan Bakery. If I'm honest, I didn't like the place on my first impression. The place looks like rubbish. There is not much space and it's a little claustrophobic. However, the food... More
