Founded in 1892, the brand was born in Homs, Syria with the sole intention of making the world a much sweeter place.
With all the thousands of cake shops and dessert spots taking different spins on the classics or concocting cosmically elaborate ideas opening up in Egypt, sometimes we just miss the OG flavours of classic basbousa and good ol’ simple man’s konafa. Aboullaban is the patisserie for that very mission.

Founded in 1892, the brand was born in Homs, Syria with the sole intention of making the world a much sweeter place. For over a century, they’ve succeeded in doing that, but they’ve managed to take things up a notch by opening up their very first branches outside of Syria in Om El Donia.

Aboullaban is for the classic kick-back kinda nights where you’re simply just nostalgic for mama’s basbousa. They specialise in making all the classics we know and love like basbousa, konafa Nabulsiya, balah el sham, atayef, zalabya, ward el sham and literally just about anything old school you can dream up. If you’re feeling edgy, they have just the thing for you too with gateaux options like cheesecakes, eclairs, profiteroles. If that isn’t enough for you, they also have a bakery portion where they cook up all sorts of feteer, pates, croissant, baton salee, and even toast.
