Family owned and operated, this bakery offers delicious, brick oven-baked, traditional Turkish breads, pide (pita), simit (Turkish bagel), and savory baked goods (acma, pohaca, borek). The spinach and cheese filled borek, flat squares of thinly layered, flaky yufka (phyllo) dough, served warm, is excellent. Try the large Turkish pide next time you have kebabs or hummus. Their sweet cookies and desserts, especially the pistachio baklava, also get rave reviews.
Serving the local Middle Eastern community and beyond since 1997, Taskin has a small parking lot with a retail counter entrance in the back. Look for the “Bakery Open 24 Hours” sign, just off the Parkway on Hazel Street. Cash only.
