Because of their profession, bakers reap the benefits of rising early, such as an increased metabolism and enough knowledge of the rooster’s whereabouts to blackmail it for life.

Since 1991, Jaafer Sweets' resident pastry professionals have observed thousands of years of Middle Eastern baking traditions to lavish their customers with fresh treats baked from scratch. Baklava stacks flakey filo pastry with dense layers of chopped nuts and house-made sugar syrup, making it an ideal post-dinner indulgence or bait for capturing Winnie the Pooh ($6.99/lb.). Nosh on a tray of cookies ($6.99/lb.) or sate sweet teeth with kanafeh, a wheat-based treat full of sweet, melted cheese, whose shredded-filo composition masquerades as vermicelli to sneak into unsuspecting mouths. Jaafer Sweets also assembles sugar-free varieties of baklava, allowing customers the option of sweetening the pastry pieces themselves by sending them surprise flowers at work.

Jaafer Sweets

People around the world find comfort in tradition, especially when it comes to the foods they grew up with. For many with ancestral roots in the Middle East, one of the best ways to transport oneself back to childhood is by breathing in the nutty aroma—or taking a big bite—of honey-drenched baklava. That's especially the case for Hannah Moses, co-owner of Albany Park bakery Jaafer Sweets. Moses's natural and sugar-free Middle Eastern sweets are based on recipes that date back thousands of years. They're crafted with fresh ingredients such as imported nuts and phyllo dough that's baked from scratch rather than just scraped off some nearby phyllo tree. Though sticky-sweet baklava packed with pistachios, cashews, or chocolate and walnuts is their most popular treat, the kitchen also churns out other traditional pastries such as mamoul with dates and kanafeh stuffed with their own sweet cheese. These unique Middle Eastern desserts have earned accolades from ABC 7 and patrons alike.
