Although the trend of suhoor in the city has just gained major momentum in the last few years, Siblini says that he’s had his business opened for the Ramadan crowd during suhoor dating back to the days of the old Yasmeen Bakery, well before the store was remodeled and expanded into its current location.

On this particular morning, dozens of customers were in the store ordering food between 2:00 a.m and 3:00 a.m. Some of them dine in, while others take the food to eat it at home. The staff during the shift says that the weekday crowds are nothing compared to the weekend crowds during the hours of suhoor. They say the lines on early Saturday and Sunday mornings go out the door.
