About HAFIZ MUSTAFA
The history of Hafez Mustafa Sweets began in 1864, during the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Aziz, when Hafez Mustafa’s father, Ismail Hakki Bey, started making sweets in the basement of the building in which he lived in the Bahçekapı district of Istanbul, and he gained a good reputation because of people’s admiration for the sweets he made.
He invested in the spread of Turkish sweets around the world and added to the traditional sweets industry the production of coffee, tea, chocolate, Turkish delight, and other products that spread in different countries.
Hafez Mustafa won 11 medals in the field of making pastries and sweets in Europe between 1926 and 1938, and his son Jamil Bey continued the same path of success and expansion after him.
Today, Hafez Mustafa sweets shops are the most popular destination for tourists who want to taste the delicious original taste of various types of Turkish sweets, in addition to exporting them to many countries of the world.
