  • 5 star review  This was such a sleeper hit! My wife and I were heading to DQ, but then she changed her mind and wanted to try this place. It was amazing! The selection was so vast! I had no idea baklava could be served in so many forms. The loqhum (which I would describe as a sweet and heavy gummie) was a first for me, but it is so good! Exactly sweet enough, and portioned in two bites (don't recommend single biting these). Then, we got some ice cream (still, lots of choices) to eat there, and I was glad too. The atmosphere was so comfortable and the cushions felt so good to sit in and lean against. Not a lot of table space, but it is better for the times we are in now. Most, and best, of all, the guy behind the counter was amazingly helpful. He knew so much and helped guide our way through the large selection without feeling like we were getting pitched what to order. He definitely gave us everything we needed to hear to be confident that, even though we had never had any of this before, we were confident that we would enjoy our selection of Turkish delights. If you want something sweet, not expensive, and new for your pallet, then please give this place your time. I really doubt that you will regret any choice you make here. Next time we go, my wife is going to try their fresh pressed coffee and I am getting a fresh smoothie.

  • 5 star review  We visited Sedara Sweets to buy Turkish Delight and Baclava and we were not disappointed! They had so many varieties to choose from. Our first visit there, we overheard two other groups come in behind us who were also first time visitors. We'll be back for more delicious treats!

    5 star review  I don't think I've had better baklava in my life!! Fantastic icecream, better prices & even better portion sizes (you get so much bang for your buck) and such a beautiful little shop! I will be ordering the Carmel icecream again and again and again. Pretty sure I'll eat my weight in baklava sometime in the near future. It was even delicious on day two!! Would DEFINITELY recommend!

    5 star review  My husband and I loved everything about this shop. It was beautiful and impeccably clean. When you walk in the door, it is as though you are transported to the Middle East. The décor is beautiful. The man behind the counter was very kind and attentive. We could only get ice cream, but we certainly wanted one of everything. The pastry case is so clean and appealing. Everything looks so beautiful, delicious, and tempting. The ice cream was fresh, the perfect texture, and tasted so good. I can't wait to go back.

  • 5 star review  Very friendly service and nice ambiance. I will be making this a regular stop when I'm in the neighborhood. The sweats are delicious and accessible to anyone with a remotely diverse palette. The savories are also delicious. We found them to be a perfect fusion of middle eastern food with a american twist, but that may not be enough to make them fully accessible to an exclusively American palette. Great coffee.

  • 5 star review  Awesome, authentic Turkish desserts. I was just visiting the area and decided to try. Decent prices and the sweets were beyond my expectation. Highly recommend the dessert from Sedara and I will definitely go back to this place when I visit St. Louis again.

    5 star review  Went out of my comfort zone and tried the falafel sandwich. I ate before i could get a picture lol. It was SO GOOD!! So many yummy flavors. Everything I've had from here is so delicious. Highly recommend.

    5 star review  I live in the neighborhood close to this eatery and visit frequently. The staff is super friendly, the place is always clean, and the selection of baklava is great! If you live around there and you are a coffee drinker I really suggest the coffee subscription because you can definitely get your money's worth out of it. The redesign of the shop interior was so good! The graphic design work they use is also really charming.

    5 star review  I love this place. Lots of choices for coffee and tea, lots of choices for sweets. Everything I've ever had was good. I haven't had any lunch or dinner food yet but plan to soon. Definitely recommend and I will definitely go back.

    5 star review  I've been keeping on eye on this place thanks to Yelp and Google Reviews, but after seeing the food truck drive by I thought I was overdue for a trip. Sedara's did not disappoint! I was so surprised to see the large variety of turkish delights and baklava. I thought I was only going to get a couple of pieces, but the nice younger man behind the counter suggested getting either 10 or 20 pieces for cost savings. I got 10 different pieces of baklava and there were still more options that I didn't try! They had chocolate, hazelnut, pistachio, cherry pistachio, almond, rose water and classic. They all looked so good and of the ones I've tried they are all so delicious! I've only had baklava 3-4 times, but this was by far the best I've ever had!

  • 5 star review  This place is great! I love that I can get ice cream for breakfast here or maybe something just a little sweet or something just little savory. Also, the coffee is tasty too. This is the place to be at 8 am or 8 pm or anyway in between.

    thumb Marjorie Moore

    5 star review  Went in with the grand kids today for some delicious ice cream. The two employees there (I think Max and Jakob were their names) were extremely kind, helpful, and great with the kids. Max in particular was very nice and patient when explaining the different pastries they had. When we were seated with our ice cream, they talked about how great the place was to work in, and how great the owner was. He is certainly lucky to have such hardworking, and loyal staff. The ice cream was delicious and we will definitely be going there again if for no other reason than to support such a delightful small business here in Affton!

    thumb Carol Smith

    5 star review  The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the dessert servings were much bigger than expected! A single scoop of ice cream seems to be equivalent to at least two scoops in other places. And the brownie we ordered was gigantic! And delicious. Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Wonderful homemade pastries, ice cream, coffee and iced coffee. The customer service was fantastic and the staff was well educated about how the different offerings were made. Love the mid-eastern baklava.

    thumb Wendy Melrose
