2- Furn El Saydeh – Mansourieh

Furn El Saydeh is a personal favorite. This bakery is, without any doubt, the oldest bakery in this list and probably one of the oldest in Lebanon – if not the region. Established more than 250 years ago by the clergy of the Our Lady of Mansourieh church, it was then passed on to the Habib family who still owns the place. Furn El Saydeh was and still is – hands down – the bakery that produces the best sacramental bread in Lebanon. Their stone oven is still preserved from the 1760’s and bakes some of the tastiest dough in the country.

1- Furn Abou Fadel – Beit Mery

Furn Abou Fadel was Beit Mery’s best kept secret until many fellow bloggers revealed it and highlighted the delicious man’oucheh and specialties they offer. Forget every man’oucheh you’ve ever tasted and just try their delicious Zaatar, Cheese and Olive rolls. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
