Spectacular!

Came here for pastries as a local friend recommended. The place is beautiful and the pastries look so good it's hard to choose.

We went to Dearborn for another delicious feast at Hamidos Restaurant. After our meal, we asked the waitress where to find the best dessert, and she pointed us towards Shatila Bakery and Cafe down the street. Wow! Shatilas has the best baklava in the world, and not expensive at all. We ordered 6 baklava with pistachios, one with almonds, and... More

Is this the best bakery in Dearborn? Yes, of course - it's a institution, and a well-deserved landmark of Warren Avenue. In an area known for great Middle Eastern foods of all sorts, Shatila can't be beat for pastries, meat and cheese pies and a host of sweet and savory baked goodies. We live 600 miles away and ALWAYS make... More

The best Middle East bakery in Detroit. I came with my family and friends, I was told this is the best bakery and believe this is the one. If you like the Baklava and other typical Middle East sweets, this is your place. Family friendly.

The pastries are very famous. But that brings a huge crowd. We had to take a number for our turn, yes, like in a DMV. Took about 20 min on a Saturday evening. But the pastries are worth it. They also have unique flavors in ice creams. Not many choices for savory items. Mostly desserts.

Great place for Mediterranean and Lebanese pastries. Everything on them menu is always good. Don't let the crazy crowd on weekends scare you off. Sometimes hard to find a table but you're always welcome to share a table. My favorite is the coconut cluster!

If you would like to try a real Middle Eastern pastries, try Shatila. Their Kunafe, bird nest, and Burma are amazing. Love it!!

You have a fair number of middle eastern restaurant and bakery options on Warren Avenue in Dearborn, and the standard is fairly high across the board just to keep up with the competition and stay in business. That being said, the Shatila Bakery was outstanding in every way. It was modern and air conditioned inside, has a large eating area... More

Their cakes and individual pastries are works of art and they taste good too! I love taking their items to parties and get togethers. Their baklava is definitely habit forming. Be prepared for long lines around holidays!
