You might often see baklava and baklawa used, depending on where you choose to eat. Perhaps you’re wondering what the difference is. The short answer is that there is no difference whatsoever; baklawa is simply another name for baklava.
Baklawa has been around for thousands of years, and many countries like to stake their claim as the creators of baklava. While the recipe does vary somewhat from one country to the next, the basic elements are always present – sweet, flaky pastry, nuts, pistachio cream, and honey or syrup. It is widely reputed for its exceedingly rich taste and unique syrupy-infused flavour.
Baklawa, as we currently know it, originated in the 15th century (though its origins date back further to the 8th century BC). It’s believed that the recipe was first perfected in the kitchens of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. While the Ottomans introduced baklava to the Europeans, it was the Greeks who introduced the much thinner filo pastry, which is characteristic of modern-day baklawa.
Today, there exist countless varieties of baklava, including:
While some Turkish nationals hold fast to the belief that true baklawa should only be made with syrup and not honey, there is no doubt that baklava is a true Middle Eastern staple.
Here at Cremma, we take great pride in preparing and baking all our pastries onsite – something that very few other cafes tend to do. All our pastries are baked fresh for the day ahead, so you know you’re getting the freshest snack for the best taste experience.
We bake our baklawa to perfection, ensuring that every piece is flaky, sticky with syrup or honey, oozing pistachio butter and brimming with nuts. We bake our baklava in sheets before cutting it into even portions that are small yet deceptively filling. You’ll want to treat yourself to at least two, however, we promise that it’ll be worth it!

If you like cake, you’ll love visiting Cremma. We have three standard options that are always available. The first is our honey cake that’s deliciously creamy and available in one of three toppings – walnut, lemon, and cacao. Our second option is our chocolate souffle that is both rich and decadent. Our last option is our speciality Cremma cheesecake, available with extra Belgian chocolate for a small fee.
We also have special cakes that change daily, so there’s always something new to try. All our cakes are made onsite by our skilled team members and are made using the freshest ingredients.
If you fancy something cold on a summer’s day, we recommend you stop by for some tasty ice cream. Our unique recipe is world-famous, which is a reason to stop by in itself. And we offer a truly magnificent range of flavours, from the traditional vanilla, strawberry and chocolate options to flavours that include black mulberry and honey.
What makes our ice cream really unique is that it’s stretchy! It can be eaten with a knife and fork which we’re sure will be a new experience for most of our customers. Our stretchy ice cream tastes incredible and doesn’t melt, so you’ll have plenty of time to savour it. Customers can also choose other options, such as ice cream sandwiches. And all our ice cream can be served with fruit or chocolate for an extra indulgent experience.

We would like to welcome you all to Cremma; conceived in 2019, we opened our doors in 2020 in a year of uncertainty. Our goal was to provide customers with a luxury experience with a desire to bring some life back to the dying centre of a once-bustling seaside town. In the wake of so many businesses leaving Bournemouth, we opted to make this our new home, to bring vibrancy back to the town centre.
While our opening came during the midst of a global pandemic, we were able to ride out this storm, emerging stronger just in time to enjoy an incredibly strong summer period. It is our hope that the business will continue to go from strength to strength as the years go on, and we’d love for you all to be a part of the history we’re set to make.
