What is Layla’s Delicacies?


Layla’s Delicacies is our way of sharing sweets from Tunisia with everyone in America. It all started when we immigrated to the US. Our love for authentic Tunisian pastries couldn’t be satisfied anymore because we couldn’t find places that sold things like Tunisian Baklava, Samsa, or Kaak Warka. So we took the matter in our own hands and started baking sweets in our own apartment. Initially, it was just for us. Then we started sharing them with family and friends. Their response was overwhelmingly positive. They were even willing to pay money to have our sweets at their own family and friend gatherings! That’s when the idea of Layla’s Delicacies came to our minds. Layla is our daughter. She loves baking. This business is our way of keeping that love alive and keeping her connected with the Tunisian tradition of sharing sweets with the people you love.
We are based in New Jersey. We deliver all around the US and ship within 1 Business Day. We can’t wait for you to try our pastries!

Tunisian Sweets With A Sophisticated Heritage


Making our treats involves a great deal of craft. After all, it only took a couple of centuries and a lot of cultural influences in order to reach this level of deliciousness. These treats are extremely sophisticated thanks to Tunisia’s vibrant multicultural history. The stuffing techniques were inherited from the moors of Spain. The use of almond was influenced by the berbers of North Africa while the use of pistachio came from the Middle East. The refinement in making these delicacies came from the French and the Italians who lived among Tunisians in the last century. Every bite is a marriage of the best of what the Mediterranean has to offer. We’re very excited for you to try them because we are sure you will love them as much as we do.
