$$$$Perfect For:Serious Take-Out Operation

Included In

This sweet shop is run by Ziad and Doha Khaled, who emigrated from Lebanon to Brooklyn in 1975. Their selection changes periodically, so it’s best not to go with your heart set on a particular sweet, but to pick whatever appeals most on any given day. Come early (they open around 10am, but like many businesses in Bay Ridge, operating hours are sometimes merely a suggestion) before they sell out of homemade semolina cakes, baklava, and other Lebanese desserts. They also have an excellent selection of Turkish delights, nougat candies, dried fruits and nuts, and of course, hookahs.
