Montclair’s diversity and creativity are what encouraged Mustafa to invest in opening his storefront in Montclair Center. Mustafa expressed one of his goals is to showcase the diversity of Montclair through his artistic patisserie design. He wants to share his culinary art with the Montclair community. “Sharing is caring,” he expressed. “We don’t see this customer as a customer. We see them as friends. Everyone is contributing something.”

Mustafa, having a background in the culinary industry, was inspired by the Montclair community to open his establishment on Bloomfield Avenue. Mustafa was once working in line prepping large amounts of food. Now, he is looking to turn his hobby of culinary art into a growing business. What makes the Nuts + Delights patisserie unique to Mustafa is a “delicate approach with artistic presentation.” A tradition Mustafa shared is “Let us share sweets, let us talk sweet.”

Mustafa said that his goals for Nuts + Delights this year are to start growing and keep growing. He has big plans to make his establishment a staple for people in the community to visit, share, and even plan events. Mustafa’s biggest source of inspiration for this is “connecting everything… welcoming Mediterranean culture.” He also expressed he wants to see and meet new people in his patisserie every day to hear from them and share with them.



About the Space

When first walking into Nuts + Delights customers will be greeted by warm wooden floors, rich, dark blue walls, minimalist floor lamps, and round tables, chairs, and stools. The tables are small and hold space for two people, but can be pushed together if accommodation is needed for a larger group. There are also a few high-top tables to the right upon entrance.
