Sekerci Cafer Erol (Candy Shop), Istanbul

Address Yasa Cad. No:19, Kad?köy, Istanbul Map, Tel (216) 337 1103 Call, Website

We couldn't resist walking away with a boxful of traditional Turkish candies, pastries and cookies from this 200 year old family run shop. Everything here is as tasty as it is gorgeous, even though the sugar overload means that you only get to take a small bite from each of your purchases!

    My wife and I are leaving for Istanbul in weeks with our 21 month old son, and your posts are getting us very excited! We've never been there with a baby before, but your great trip is making us feel a whole lot more comfortable about the long trip and (seemingly longer) flights! Our boy is an accomplished air traveler, but hasn't been on a plane since he started walking. Thanks to your tips, we are getting our airplane bag ready to go. Keep the great pictures and stories coming!
