Hafız Mustafa information
Making locals happy since 1864, this şekerlemeleri (sweets shop) sells lokum (Turkish Delight), milk puddings and spinach or cheese börek (filled pastry). Put your sweet tooth to good use in the upstairs cafe, or choose a selection of indulgences to take home (you might want to avoid the baklava, though, which isn't the best).
There are branches on Divan Yolu Caddesi , in Sultanahmet, and Hamidiye Caddesi , close to the Spice Bazaar.
