Place: In a little strip mall right next to Cedar's bakery, so you can hop on over after getting some good savory treats! In a fairly convenient location also near other lebanese/arab places in the cityService: Quick and kind, watched the workers offer gift boxes for baklava and cookies if requested for nice presentation, and also let customers know that they could wait ~15 mins for freshly baked cake, which they did ! I also checked in and got a free pistachio baklava! I was also extremely thirsty coming in with an empty water bottle, and the worker kindly went to the back and filled my bottle for me.Food/price: I got the lebanese kenafa and osmalieh (ashta cream) for $3 each, simple syrup came on the side so you could control the sweetness level, which was nice. Cream and cheese inside the pastries was extremely fresh. There were probably 6 or 7 different variations of kenafa type desserts and I can't wait to go back and try the others! I also had the pistachio baklava, I never had one that had green puff pastry also and it was very good. I also had a chocolate and vanilla petit four, little cookies with jam filling. They were very soft and buttery.Audience: Anyone! It is focused on arabic desserts but there are also european style cakes (think fruit tarts, mocha cake, black forest, cake rolls, etc.)Recommend/tips: I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick sweet fix, a party favor, or dessert. There are all types of desserts and I can't wait to try their cakes (baklava cheesecake is supposed to be their specialty) and their mamoul. More...

My husband and I were in the mood forsweets and we luckily  stumbled across Susie's. They had a very large selection of middle eastern pastries and European style cakes and cookies.  I had a pastry with rose flavoring which was delicious.  I also tried some small pastries which were also delicious.   We so got several items to go also...all phenomenal. I am officially hooked on this bakery.   The only problem is there are too many good things to chose from. More...

I'm taking a star off because the tables were dirty.  In all fairness, the owner/manager whom I believe is Suzie came to clean the tables.  I believe many of the pastries are sold by the pound.  And you get a free sample of baklava when you check in using the Yelp app.  The baklava sample was tasty.  You order at the counter.  The bakery already has some pastries in small clear boxes ready to be bought.  I purchased something unconventional (not Middle Eastern.)  I bought a delicious slice of mocha cake.  It's delicious.  My sister swears by Suzie's other sweet goods.  I would buy a whole mocha cake if the opportunity arises.  By the way, the cake slice is very moderately priced at $3.

Just ordered a birthday cake from here and they did a great jo. It was some type of fruit cake filled with pineapples, peaches, grapes, kiwi, and strawberries. Super moist cake not too sweet. The fruits were fresh and delicious. The whipped cream was also good with pistachios. I love how it wasn't overly sweet just right. More...

This pastry shoppe is truly a baklava haven. Their baklava is really delicious and not sweet. It have lots of different baklavas with variety of nuts. You can mix and match your baklava in one order and price would depend on the weight of your order. Other pastries and cakes are available if you are not into baklava. Store assistant was very helpful in telling us what are the other pastries in the shelves. More...

This bakery is like heaven. Mafroukeh was my FAVORITE. This is the green dessert on the fancy plate pictured. It's like a light creamy cheese on top of a crust, topped with pistachios and cashews and soaked in rose water. The kunafeh was really good too! Everything was so delicious, including the cappuccino. The coffee cookies were so fresh. Everything is so tasty and made from scratch. This place made my week and I can't wait to come back. The best Middle Eastern bakery I've been to yet! More...

I ordered a Black Forest cake for my mother's birthday today and she and all the guest fell in love with it I'm so happy she enjoyed it she is very picky when it comes to sweets and doesn't like cakes that are too sweet I guess it was just right I'll definitely be back because  Suzie made the whole experience so easy and delightful for me

My favorite pastry shop  Suzie makes some of the best cakes in Houston I definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in trying French and Arabic style pastries.  You won't be disappointed.

Delicious and authentic lebanese desserts. The one I tried this time had a nice balance between sweet and savory with a soft back note of rose water and maybe orange blossom. However, their french cakes are overly sweet. I would get the pistachio again but the roll cake and the black forest both had that cloyingly sweet taste from too much syrup. For $2.75 a slice, you can't beat it but with so many other options, pass on these cakes. More...

I'm in love with their pastries, especially the baklavas. It was heavenly good, fresh and not too sweet. I ate so much but still wanting to buy more. Wish there would be a student discount for broke college kids like me :$ More...

Probably one of my favorite middle-eastern dessert place in Houston! The baklava options are endless! My favorite part of walking in is just seeing the family-run business in action. All of the items I have tried (baklava, Kanafa, biscuits) are always fresh. They have several types of baklava to chose from, including pistachio and walnut fillings. They even have a section of sugar-free baklava! The kanafas are even perfect for taking to-go since they come with a container of sugar syrup that you can open when you're ready to pour on top at home. There is so much love put into this bakery and you can just see it before you taste anything! Pricing is reasonable, most are sold by the pound. I always love being in the area so I have an excuse to come here! The staff is very nice and helpful and I have never had any issues with any requests. More...

I met the owners of this lovely pastry shoppe. They were very nice and helpful. I spoke with  the woman who owned the shoppe and Who also helped us out by explaining what all of the middle eastern sweets were. She told us she use to own a shop on westhiemer 9 years ago. She told me she had to stop because they were always SO BUSY. She said having a family and running a business was too much at the time. Now that her children are grown, her and her husband/family are able to run the pastry shoppe again. I can see why this place may have been so busy! We tried a couple of baklava with a check-in (walnut baklava). Was soooo amazing. She says everything is hand made. The knaffe is one of the best I have tried! Everything is very fresh and handmade here. Its definitely something to try. Bt the way... YOU HAVE TO TRY THEIR CANOLI. More...

First of all the place looks nice and clean. Have a nice variety of Mediterranean pastries. Asked the lady at the counter about some pastries that didn't know about and lady at the counter couldn't explain so she call another lady that Looks like the owner. She was not only very welcoming but also offer me a sample to try. Explained everything. I ended buying a box of different mini pastries. I have to say, I'm not into sweets too much, but I love baklava. It was delicious! I highly recomendable this pastry shop. Only thing they have this hispanic lady helping that wasn't very welcoming.

I've eaten baklava in Greece, Turkey, Israel and various places around the U.S. Often, commercial bakeries stint on the nuts and butter and drown the pastry in syrup. The result is a sugary assault. Suzie's baklava, delicately sweetened in contrast, is some of the best I've ever had. You can taste and butter, rosewater and various nuts, lots of them, especially the pistachio, in every bite. Suzie also makes knafeh and date-filled cookies that are top notch. We buy the various baklava (at least a dozen different varieties) by the pound. But they never stay around our home for more than two days because they are so addictive. You can eat in but most of the customers take out. More...

This place different varieties of baklava, pastries. The place is right at the intersection of dunvale and Richmond and very close to the AMC theatre. The place is huge with some seating outside. This place is very clean. Their pastries are to die for. I tried a chocolate pastry with moist cake sandwiched deliciously between the chocolate layers and it was not even too sweet. The other pastry had custard and was so delicious and one of a kind. Service was good. Lot of space for parking. Must try. More...

After searching in vain for the baklava that is as delicious as the one I had in Istanbul, I finally found the one at Suzie's! The baklava here is certainly the most expensive I found (at $16 per pound), but it is also the best.A traditional Turkish dessert, baklava is a pastry that is composed of multiple layers of puff pastry with glazed syrup and crushed nuts in between layers. When done properly, a well-made baklava is a delightful combination of crispiness and softness with the balance between sweet and nutty tastes. While other baklava in Houston tend to be overly sweet or have too little nuts, Suzie's baklava hit that perfect spot! That means if you are craving or curious about this popular Turkish dessert but cannot make your way to Istanbul, you can travel just to Suzie's to get yourself some delicious baklava that is as good as the ones you may find under the shadow of Hagia Sophia!

Middle-eastern Pastries at Suzie's are PERFECT!The lady with glasses (I don't know if she is the owner) is suuuuper nice and makes you a happy and appreciated customer. Unfortunately, there is another lady working there who is not helpful at all. She is frowning during the time that she is preparing your to-go order and is not pleasant at all. She hardly answers your questions about the ingredients in a disrespectful manner. I Have been there many times. Love their middle eastern pastries, Always fresh. 1 star off because of the disrespectful lady who is always there :( More...

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to walk the streets of Beirut, sipping Arabic coffee and delighting on Lebanese pastries, look no more. A visit to Suzie's Pastry Shoppe is exactly what you need. Every pastry is made perfectly with love, and light hands. Suzy herself is a delight behind the counter. She is what every master pastry chef should be - artful in her craft, precise in the flavor profiles she creates and generous in both personality and helpings. The Arabic coffee is perfection too.

Stopped here today for the first time because I read about this bakery in a Yelp email. WOW! I am so happy I did. I bought several different items: about six different varieties of baklava, but there were at least six more that I will have to try on my next visit, which will be in the very near future. The lady who waited on me was so nice. She gave me several free samples, and recommended other things she thought I might like. Their little cookies are to die for. They are so tender, and delicious. They remind of the little Italian cookies I used to get in New Jersey. My only complaint is that I have lived here for six years and did not find this shop until today. It gives me a pang to realize what I've been missing! I can't wait to try more of their items! More...

I had bookmarked this place because of the reviews and it's not far from home. Finally stopped by after work to check it out. Space inside is nice, but sparse. The pastry cabinets are large and show the products nicely. I don't remember a menu on the wall and there were no prices on the products. I got a piece of cake that looked chocolate (no labels).  It tasted of coffee...it was good, but dry by the end of day. I also got a dozen assorted cookies for co-workers the next day. They were crumbly, buttery & had various flavors. Everyone enjoyed them! Yelp had a check-in coupon, so I got a free piece of baklava. I think that was the best item out of the whole purchase! They evidently have several kinds, but I'm not the type to ask questions & they were not labeled. More...

I really like any type of pastries so it was no huge upset when I stopped here and actually found out it was arabian type of pastries.  If you are expecting cupcakes, this is not the place for you.  However, if you are adventurous and would like to try something new, this place has it all.  I really enjoy baklava and date cookies and this place offered a lot of selections.  I ended up with date bar, date cookie, and a green something lol.  I must say that all pastries were fresh and delicious!  They also offer some delicious looking cakes but come on y'all I couldn't choose everything.  The space is large and inviting so you can also come spend some time here with your family. I can definitely say that I will be back and I hope they decide to sell the baklava cheesecake by the slice! More...

As a kid in New York I loved the Italian and German bakeries with their apricot and raspberry filled shortbread and butter lady finger cookies dipped in chocolate.  For 30 years I have searched Houston for the same type of bakery without success.  That was until I discovered Suzie's.  Known for baklava and other middle eastern sweets, Suzies's also makes traditional NY bakery cookies to perfection!  If you miss the NY bakery cookies, this is the place!

The people that work here are so nice. Love their baklava and cheesecake. It's so cute inside too, I like the rustic look of the bakery. Everything is on a tray for you to see and doesn't need to make it fancy on a plate. It's just simple and easy to the eyes. The pastry is already pretty so they don't need to put a lot of effort in to make it fancy. More...

I had a baby shower with a Parisian tea party theme and was looking for someone who makes croquembouche. I found out that suzie's pastry shop makes it on yelp. I emailed her and decided to order a croquembouche, some mini cake slices and mini fruit tarts. Everything was sooooooo good! And everyone was raving about it. I've never had a creme puff I've loved for only liked. I loved the croquembouche! It was so amazing. Everything else was also delicious. Since I ordered a bunch of stuff, she been gave me samples of her petit cookies and other stuff. I haven't tasted everything she gave but everything has been great so far. I will definitely come back again. We went to the shop twice and every time everyone's been super nice and friendly. I'll definitely be going back! More...

We try a new place every Monday and we were really surprised at this find. My husband is Turkish and he was really impressed with their selections. We tried several items and they were all pretty good. I ordered a double espresso but what I got was really more like an americano. The sales person told us that the owner makes all the dough for the baklava in house everyday. That is awesome. We tried the katayif and some cake and everything was fresh. More...

I give this place 5 stars because I think  they are the best Lebanese pastry in town. I live in LA but I go to Houston to visit my friend I am glad I don't live in Houston otherwise I will be going there everyday. All of there desserts are delicious especially the Baklava , Knafe and Ismalliyi to die for. The owners and staff are very helpful and nice to everyone and they have fabulous ideas for birthday cakes and personalized dessert boxes. More...

Great pastry shop! The owner is a nice woman and her helper answered our many questions w pleasure. You're able to sample the sweets and she will tell you which ones are fresh if you ask. The kenaf is yummy, but I like the pistachio one the most (not just bc of its beautiful appearance but also the subtly sweet taste and nutty texture).Unfortunately I don't know the names of any of the other sweets that we got but they all had nuts in them and ranged from $6-$8 a lb (which is like a full box). I thought that was reasonably priced. The place is clean with plenty of seating. It reminds me of an icecream parlor with a tv and small kid place section, whole cakes available for purchase as well!

Oh My Lord!!! This place is like paradise. You go in and immediately start to salivate. The sweets are to die for. The cakes are rich but light, creamy, moist, fresh, just amazing. The Mediterranean sweets are fresher and more authentic than the ones I had in Lebanon. The cookies melt in your mouth like I can't describe. The maamoul taste like a piece of heaven.Suzie the owner is the sweetest lady I have ever met . She is so helpful and generous and did not let me leave before trying almost everything they have. I can immediately see the passion they have towards their business and what they do. The place is modern, clean, smells amazing, neat. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, especially for a Mediterranean place.Very impressed!A piece of advice, if you are going to buy sweets (regular cakes or Mediterranean sweets), turn on the car and go there. You will not regret it. Best food for a very reasonable price. What more can you ask for? P.S: make sure to order kenafeh and cheaybiyyet. You will eat the plate with it . More...

This is the best Middle Eastern sweets shop in Houston. The sweets are made on premise and fresh. If ordering the sweets that have cheese or ashta, ask which ones just came out from the oven. Always better to eat them fresh. Those that have nuts in them are excellent no matter when eaten. More...
