As Rich As Our Culture
Oea Bakery is named after the ancient Phoenician city, Oea, which covers part of modern day Tripoli, Libya.
Our vision for this company is to not only share our ingredient rich Libyan Baklava, but also to share our complex Libyan culture and heritage. It is through the many civilizations and peoples that inhabited Libya throughout thousands of years that brought about this heavenly dessert into existence.

Our baking process
"This is by far the BEST baklava that I have ever eaten in my whole life.
I consider myself a real foodie , & would not rave about it like this if I did not feel it deep in my heart ❤️
Trust me , it’s fabulous."
"Absolutely the best Baklava I have ever ate. I was a bit worried about ordering 2 plates on my first order. I wanted to take advantage of the free shipping and the first time order 10% off coupon so I took a chance . I am so glad I did , it took me a total of 9 days “I had to discipline myself” to eat both plates with no help from anyone 😳. My final thought ...be prepared to be addicted."
"This baklava is, by far, the best that I’ve ever tasted. The staff is so personable. If you have a question, just ask them in the comments and they’ll get back to you in a fair amount of time. I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
I will definitely order again. It makes a nice gift for someone, too."
"I purchased the recommended Turkish coffee and cooked it up per the instructions. The baklava is delicious on its own, but combined with the coffee, it’s a heavenly treat! Something about the smell of the coffee and the taste of the nuts and honey; a magical moment! I will definitely purchase this baklava again. Better than any I have had in the US or even during my trip to Turkey. Crisp tender pastry layers, evenly ground nuts, the wonderful smell of butter and honey. Not too sweet or heavy, tempts you to have one more piece."
"It’s flaky, it’s gooey, and you can taste the fresh honey that they use in it. It is absolutely fantastic. I love the thick layer of nuts and honey in the middle of the phyllo pastry—it makes it much tastier than regular baklava which often has too many layers of phyllo pastry and not enough delicious nut filling. I will be ordering again; I am obsessed with this baklava!!"
How it started
My name is Nour and I started selling Baklava informally towards the end of college in 2019.
Our company is now run by my family and I in Colorado and we're really excited to share a small part of our Libyan culture with you.
