If you’re fan of baklava, you just have to come to Mr. Sweets and try their mouthwatering baklava!
At Mr. Sweets Pastries, founded by Michael Shatila, the mission is to delight customers with unique and authentic recipes that include only the highest quality, hand-picked ingredients. They are committed to delivering only the sweetest, most mouthwatering Mediterranean Pastries available: from their family to yours.
Shatila’s specialty is Lebanese baklava, which is a layered pastry dessert made of filo pastry, filled with chopped nuts, and sweetened with simple syrup. This differs from traditional Greek baklava which uses a sweet honey-based syrup with some additional spices. YUM!
“When customers try a sample, they say it’s not too sweet. Baklava, like Greek Baklava, is very sweet. This is not too sweet, it’s just perfect. I had a few customers coming in and they didn’t know what baklava is. I showed them and gave them a sample and they bought a tray.”
The location of the bakery is shared with Samir Hermiz who oversees the adjacent restaurant and market.
Mr. Sweets offers over 30 different kinds of baklava, with different flavors like pistachio and walnut, and shapes ranging from the classic triangles, to round nests, and filo shaped into logs. The bakery also sells cookies, cakes, ice cream, Turkish delights, and meat and cheese pies.
