“Made my order fresh”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

This chain has several places in town, I visited the one just south of Taksim in Cihangir. I wanted a Kunefe (pastry made from cheese, shredded wheat, and syrup) and they didn't have one but made it fresh for me in 15 minutes while they served me a complimentary tea. Many other sweets on display, sparkling clean shop and attentive manager. The Kunefe was very good, warm and fresh, topped with crushed pistachios and packed up nicely to go in a lovely box, all for just TL9.50. I'm happy.

“Wonderful Baklava and other sweet treats”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This place has a large store front along the Istiklal Cd and we enjoyed picking up sweet treats like baklava to take back to our hotel after walking along the pedestrian path. The staff was friendly and helped us make good choices and the prices seemed appropriate. We did not stay to eat at a table but it looked like they served drinks. I believe this is part of a chain because we saw it on other places.
