Bringing amazing Lebanese flavours to the Scarborough region, Toronto’s own Al’deewan Bakery is an authentic open flame bakery specializing in Manakeesh, Lebanese pies, Lebanese-style pizza, baked goods, and all kinds of unique offerings.
Al’deewan Bakery was founded by successful Toronto businessman Mohammad El-Karaouni, who’s overseen everything from the initial planning stages to designing the interior and menu. El-Karaouni is recognized across southern Ontario as the founder and current Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of well-known tent company Outlet Tags Canopies, ltd. He is also a proud member of thirteen years with the Toronto Police Service!
We take great pride in the quality of our Manakeesh
As a true open flame bakery, we offer authentic Lebanese bakery products that can’t be found anywhere else.
When it comes to Middle Eastern bakery products, these are something that’s a part of the national food culture in the region. Cooked authentically in the kitchens of families and in restaurants throughout Lebanon and abroad, we’re looking to bring a little bit of this over to Toronto to share with our friends and family here the amazing tastes and flavours found in these dishes.
The simple Lebanese tastes of Manakeesh, our exclusive Al’deewan Bakery pies, and the other baked goods make them easy to work into any brunch, lunch, dinner, or late night snack. Since we’ve opened, we’ve already served hundreds who’ve come in for every meal of the day.
At Al’deewan Bakery, we’ve gone the extra mile in ensuring all of our dishes are prepared according to authentic and traditional standard. In the Middle East, Manakeesh would traditionally be prepared in community ovens in the morning. After the dough baked, women would traditionally take this bread back to the family home, supplying everyone with bread topped with a range of ingredients depending on whether it was for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
