Haci Bekir, Istanbul

(2.9/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Known as one of the finest Turkish delight shops in Istanbul, Haci Bekir attracts locals and tourists alike with its sweet treats. Owned and operated by the same family for over 200 years, the shop boasts a long history of making delights--or "lokum," as the locals call this specialty--as well as other classic Turkish treats. Try the plain, rosehip, walnut, and pistachio varieties, and, if you like them, take home a few boxes from the shop. These locally made goods are a traditional gift to bring back from your travels, and make a yummy snack on the plane ride home. Use our Istanbul tourist route planner to add Haci Bekir and other attractions to your Istanbul vacation plans.

  • Best of Istanbul Eminönü Lokums. Taste those walnuts, what you taste anywhere else, or even those filled with kaymak (cream)... Lokums but also Halva, sweets and pasta of almonds. Quick and efficient service.

  • Maybe it's a little pricey but according to precedent and sold products and quality are very good. Continuing the same quality and service for many years, this cozy and old shop is not necessarily music. Hope you like them. And those old types of hard candy in taste is still very beautiful and tasty.
