So many tempting types of honey-sweet, guilty-pleasure treats are showcased here, but a language barrier and the lack of a clear menu kept us from knowing how to narrow our choices.

Baamieh (Persian egg cake) & pistachio butter puff. Starchy and sugary, with all the aromas that swathe Middle Eastern desserts (a hint of yogurt, a splash of rose syrup, a tinge of nuttiness).

This beautifully illustrated menu that explained nothing ...

... and an Arabic-to-English dictionary were our only real guides to ordering.

Iranian Swiss rolls? We'll return sometime to investigate. Ermmm, or maybe not.

Sufficient cookies for an open-house feast to feed a multitude!

Not sure how Melina ever finishes selling its wares, since the outlet is often empty.
