9 Sinfully Delicious Bakeries In Lebanon

Ever been walking by a bakery and suddenly get the craving for an entire baguette? There are so many great bakeries out there, but a few of them really stand out! Here is a list of only some of those:

1. Duree Resto

Fresh, delicious, and has just about everything you might be craving, Duree Resto is the place to enjoy a loaf of freshly baked bread that’s still warm from the oven, and a buttery flaky croissant.

We recommend: the pizza baguette, all the delicious toppings of a pizza in a delightfully fresh baguette.

2. Tusk Bakery

Tusk’s aim is to produce nutritious, organic breads with long sourdough fermentation methods using local flours as often as possible.

We recommend: the beetroot and sunflower seed cake and the dark chocolate loaf.

3. Fern Ghattas

Heaven for pastry lovers, Ghattas is a Lebanese bakery like no other. Offering tons of variety all of which is freshly baked and deliciously prepared! Perfect for parties, gatherings, or just a day of indulgence!

We recommend: Spinach fatayer, mini pizzas, and pigs in blankets.

4. Ichkhanian

Ichkhanian is definitely the “King of Lahme b’ajin”, you must try their Armenian-inspired Lahme b’ajin, crisp and delicious; and be ready to indulge because you’ll definitely be having more than one or two!

We recommend: Armenian lahme b’ajin (meat pies) and the pomegranate lame b’ajin.

5. Magnolia Bakery

All the way from the streets of New York, Magnolia bakery has enchanted us with its old fashion freshly baked desserts and tasty concoctions.

We recommend: the famous banana pudding and the lemon squares.

6. Gustav

Gustav is the place to go for sweet innovations. Each delectable dessert is better than the next, with more and more items added to the menu every once in a while. Fresh and tasty!

We recommend: The red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

 7. Tartine Bakery

The smell will have you hooked, and the taste will have you coming back for more. From its finest ingredients to its most authentic flavors Tartine bakery is definitely a place to try!

We recommend: fougasse aux olives, the almond croissant, and the brioche.

8. Furn Beaino

Delicious, fresh, perfect – that’s how we’d describe this perfect little bakery. The dough is so light and crunchy, and the fillings are generous and fresh!

We recommend: Lahme b’ajin and ham and cheese

9. Al Shami Bakery

This is another favorite which you don’t want to miss out on, especially if you are after something healthy, nutritious, and beneficial. Their “diet delights” are great for people watching their sugar intake, and their bread is high quality and nutritious.

We recommend: the oat bread, the thyme sticks, and healthy biscuits.
