Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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.
