Eye-popping array of yummy Middle Eastern delights!

EVERY time I'm in the Detroit area I make it a point to stop at Shatila. Usually I walk out with a half tray of baklava, but I've tried many of their other treats, including the ice cream, and love them all. One important tip: When you walk in the door, don't be distracted by all the color and... read more

Several Arabic bakeries in Dearborn compete for your business, but the huge variety of pastries is outstanding here. Also, gotta love the indoor palm tree with twinkle lights and fascinating people watching!

If you love desserts, then SHATILA is the spot! Their desserts are endless ranging from middle eastern sweets to french pastries to delicious ice cream. We love the baklava here and never get it from anywhere else. It's just THAT good. We also tried some of the french pastries, pretty delicious but a bit too heavy for me...and that could... More

This place definitely has some great pastries both French and Middle Eastern. The prices are wonderful and the pastries are amazing. The ice cream here is one of the best I’ve ever had in my life. The parking here is crappy and the service is a hit or miss.

This place served me a fly in my rice pudding. I was so disgusted and showed it to them. They all laughed and found it comical,but I sure didn't! This place has filthy kitchens in the back, loaded with insects and ants attracted to the sugar. They wouldn't even refund me or even offer an apology. Instead, shrugged it off... More

Best bakery in Dearborn, but the decor is rather gaudy/tacky. I personally don't like paying for all that. Not sure why the owners felt they needed to make it look so fancy with marble everything and TV's on the walls. Maybe it's a cultural thing. I'm sure they would do just fine by letting their excellent products speak for themselves.... More
