Our pick for the best old Cafes in Town


4. Minion Chocolate and Confectionery and Cofe

Along Sa’di Avenue before its junction with Enqelab Avenue and on the corner of Hedayat St. there is a shop which is about 78 years old. Minion Chocolate and Confectionary Shop is now a memory of the bygone past. The shop has been renamed to “Latif” Confectionary. Its original owners had fled Ukraine after the Communist revolution in that country and immigrated to Iran. The Ukrainian family that used to bake bread and cookies back in their own country, continued that line of work in capital. Roben, a descendent from that Ukrainian family, is currently running the one-time Minion Chocolate and Confectionary Shop.
