If you are a follower of my blog -and instagram account- you might recognize my adoration of Dallah’s local bakery (post). Everything they make: the coffee, the Elba, the Ghraiba, etc. is a favorite of mine and I keep going back for more and would serve their products for my guests at my own gatherings (post) (post).
