Since this is Brighton the home of a lot of "dont come in my store" places, these people are pretty nice. Food is interesting and you can sit awhile and feel comfortable. It has a very comfortable, welcoming vibe. Prices are moderate. 4 stars for lack of parking but otherwise a better coffee shop for the area.
Really cozy, homey Turkish dessert spot. Came for tea and snacks. Try the milk pudding thing! Not sure what it's called. It looks kind of funny, but tastes kind of like you're eating a roasted marshmallow, but with a better texture. But you get that delicious charred taste!
On a clear, sunny frigid January day fresh off of the Q line, my companions tried to trot me straight to our destination for Turkish Coffees and Simit. It was impossible to walk briskly past the lively cacophony of shops with their sundry, scrumptious, sometime sultry and at other times sordid wares spilling out onto the bustling sidewalks. If there were a Russian expat equivalent to Fellini surely he would have a field day in Brighton Beach! But I digress....the pristine storefront of Brighton Güllüoglu Baklava Cafe was an immediate clue that within those 7 shining meters is a simple door that'll transport you out of Little Russia to somewhere else. A smiling lady with a blonde ponytail greeted me and was both kind and game enough to let me try out my 'soap opera Turkish'. We ordered three Turkish coffees, a few pastries & 10 simit [ a simit looks like big skinny sesame-seed-encrusted bagel, and yet it is everything a bagel is not]. We enjoyed the coffee and some of the simit at an immaculate table. The coffees were served in mini porcelain cups hidden inside carved metal cupholders sitting on an intricate mini metal saucer. Each coffee had a decorative carved metal cap/crown/cover . Tiny little water glasses are set aside each coffee, per custom. I have seen enough Turkish soap operas and movies to know that the height of coffee connoisseur-ship is the presence of mahogany foam atop each coffee. Indeed ours were perfectly foamy, perfectly pre-sugared [ you cannot add and stir sugar to Turkish Coffee after it has cooked ]. It was heavenly. My companions, fiercely Italian from central Italy were blown away enough to utter words to this effect, "this is better then espresso!' I only wish I got it on tape.....Please don't think we did not adore the simit. I think our enjoyment of the coffee was enhanced by that magical bracelet of a bread whose lightness and richness of flavor is rare to find in this hemisphere. By all means, give these cafe a visit; after we left we started calculating that maybe life is all about the perfect coffee after all. So I might have to look for a place in that neighborhood.
Nice place , but prices are strange. If you get coffee and want to stay your coffee cost more. I don't understand why can't you sit. If you want only to go coffee cost less. Don't get it why I can't sit with my coffee inside !!!
Best place to get baklava. They have different sizes of boxes where you can pick and choose different flavors. The double pistachio is very good as is the sour cherry.
