Persian sweets are plentiful here, and include everything from the ubiquitous Nan Badomie (almond cookie) to the less common Sagh Aroos (Apple Jam Finger). Dream is equally well-known for cheesecakes, cupcakes, occasion cakes, and Napoleans, as well as cream puffs and tiramisu. They close at 6pm on most evenings, so take these treats home to a sugar-starved crowd.
