Saboos Bakery Cafe
A popular hangout in northern Tehran, Saboos gets crowded on weekends, so it’s best to book in advance or people-watch as you wait for a table. Decorated with their signature ceramic sheep and paintings from local artists, they serve up some of the best waffles and pancakes in town. Also on the menu are a variety of omelettes, croissants, and cinnamon French toast. Choose your coffee, which is served in mugs with famous Iranian faces, from wrestler Takhti to poet Shamloo.
