Abdul Rahman Hallab and Son are famous in Lebanon for making traditional sweets since 1881 that are very tasty indeed. The business originated in Tripoli but has several branches in Lebanon and they even have a shop at Beirut Airport.
I visited the El Mina Road branch, Tripoli where you can see the sweets being made. There is a restaurant on site and a coffee shop and the place is usually very busy with locals. They sell a wide range of traditional sweets and products such as: Baklawa, Maamoul, Buche, Diet sweets, Nougat, Jams, Cakes and dried fruits.
Prices are reasonable.
