We stumbled upon this while walking around Karakoy. It was very crowded so we tried baklava from here which was very fresh. Its a good place to buy sweets as gifts also.

It's a really informal place, with excellent Baklava. We have been there after dinner just to eat it, no regrets.

They have a variety of baklava they make there on the premises. It can get a little crowded and chaotic but there is plenty outside seating.

Many variety to choose.. but every item was way too sweet. I think it is typical for locals. If you don't have a sweet tooth.. you just can't stand the sweetness of each bite.

Oh goodness these place was such a good lunch stop. With fresh borek (one cheese one beef) and a smorgasbord of baklava to delight. Friendly staff to help the baffled visitors. Outside seating available. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
