“very nice baklavas, not much place to sit mornings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This is one of the best places for baklavas and similar desserts in Istanbul. They have a selection of breakfast items as well. A major downside is that it is difficult to find a place to sit for a breakfast. And as they are not meant for long sitting, not that comfortable.

“Baklava Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

If you love baklava, this is pretty much the pilgrimage you have to make. It is Baklava heaven with it wide assortment, you can mix a plate of small bits of sweet delight in any fashion. This is the best place in town to eat baklava. Ok, not just in town but in all of Turkey. When you arrive, start off with an order of 200 grams of baklava which amount to 5 pieces and then go from there.

“tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is top quality turkish delight - fresh and best pakhlava in Istanbul.
There are ONLY TWO shops of this brand in Istanbul and they are both located in Karakoy in 3 walking distance from each other.
Factory Store is closed on weekends. There are frequent excusrions to the factory though which you may check on line.
The retail store is open daily from 8 am - 11.30 pm
You may taste a variety of pakhlava and then create a personal assorty box of sweets - a great souvenir to firends. The cafe also serves traditional sorbet drink and tea.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Had a mixed plate with the honey cream, on the recommendation of the cashier; taste this Baklava and all others will taste inferior!
