Baylan Pastaneleri

Cevdet Paşa Caddesi No. 52–54, Bebek, Istanbul

To-die-for cakes, desserts and chocolate, at this historic cake shop, originally established by an Albanian family in 1923. Signature cakes include the caramel and the chocolate truffle. Montebianco (a chestnut purée topped with cream), moncheri (liquer-infused, chocolate-covered cherries) and adisababa (an ice cream cake layered with strawberries, peanuts and parfait) are other standouts.

There’s also a branch in Kadıköy, on the Asian side.

Divan Patisserie is also good for a sweet treat. And don’t miss Cremeria Milano for ice cream.
