Life is always better if you have a sweet tooth and want to taste all different kinds of desserts when you can. While some desserts require very specific techniques to make, others may be so simple yet so yummy.
In this article, you’ll find one of the lucky countries regarding the abundance of desserts it owns, namely Turkey. Take your notes before you visit the country not to miss any chance to get your hand on some sugar.
Savoy patisserie has a history of around 70 years which means they know what they’re doing when it comes to the bakery. The patisserie is in the attractive Beyoglu districts at a modest corner building. Their bestselling products are handmade wafers and puff pastry made daily for customers.
You can visit Savoy every day of the week between 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Another patisserie located in Beyoglu is Inci patisserie which is famous for its profiterole, a dessert similar to French éclair. Profiteroles are made fresh and served on a tray in a corn shape. Let us tell you, the patisserie is pretty generous about pouring lots of chocolate sauce on each serving.
Visit the patisserie that is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Keep in mind that they don’t have any branches although there are other patisseries in the city with the same name.
Baylan is one of the oldest patisseries in Istanbul with a history of 98 years that certainly deserves a chance to visit in its nostalgic atmosphere. The classic menu of the place is one of a kind that you may not find anywhere else. That’s also one reason the pricing is higher than usual in this patisserie. However, we surely recommend trying “kup griye” and “montebianco” that are served daily.
Opening hours of Baylan are between 7 a.m. till 8 p.m. including weekends.
Pelit is a chain patisserie brand with stores throughout the city, but the standard of its pastries is the same at every location, which is a hard thing to achieve. They are famous for their cakes for special occasions along with handmade chocolates. You can find any of the stores in shopping malls or on the busy streets of Istanbul. The patisseries are available between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. all week.
Last but not least is Divan patisserie which is a sub-brand of the Koc group. Divan’s desserts are truly a part of the gourmet experience. Each product is made by caring for the smallest detail evident from the overall feasting looks. As predicted, this luxury patisserie is higher than other patisseries in prices, but they sure worth it.
Visit Divan stores between 8 a.m. to 9.30 in the evening, every day of the week.
