Middle Eastern sweets
The perfect place to enjoy that cup of coffee, fresh pastry. Knafeh Cafe will revive the tradition of serving fresh Knafeh at all your special occasions.
Passed down from grandfather to father to son, this art of making Arabic dessert has traveled thousands of miles of away. The art of making Knafeh started hundreds of years ago in the city of Nablus (a city in Palestine). Only a few families mastered the making of Knafeh using their local Nablusian cheese. Knafeh eventually became very prominent in this city and spread to the broader region as “Nablusian Knafeh”.
Asem Abusir, an immigrant from the city of Nablus came to the United States 30 years ago and brought along this art with him that he inherited from his grandfathers. The Abusir family has many establishments throughout the Middle East preparing and serving Knafeh.
