There is no other place to go for Greek pies!

I have lived in the neighbourhood for 25 years, and this place is AMAZING. I am here to eat in or take out easily twice a week. In addition to cheese or cheese and spinach pies, there are the BEST loukoumades anywhere. They also have great coffees and other drinks. Cash only. If you have never... read more

Love going here for breakfast. Always enjoy the coffee and the spanakopita. Not the cheapest but you get your money's worth. The service can be a little friendlier.

Walking on the beach? Need a coffee and some dessert. This is the place to go. Located at the west side of the beaches their coffees and desseerts are really something. Nice patio to sit and enjoy on a sunny day. This is a good choice!

Favourite spinach pie on the Danforth (in Greek town). I've tried various spinach pies in various Greek restaurants and the one at Athens Pastry is one of my favourites. Most spinach pies tend to have a little more goat feta -- which is not to my palate. The spinach pie at Athens Pastry has a nice harmonized blend of spinach,... More

Amazing Greek bakery with all items peanut free. Frappedes are a must, metrio with gala is really good. Loukoumades a must, with the bougasta a close second. Danforth location very busy. Victoria Park location not very busy. They also have locations in East York and at the beaches.

After a lovely stroll along the boardwalk at the Waterfront Trail skirting Lake Ontario treat yourself to some amazing Greek pastries at this scrumptious eatery ! Both savoury & sweet delights await you 👏🏻 Don't leave without savouring the Honey Filled Dough Balls ..... Simply Delicious 😉

My friends and I often end up at Athens Pastries on the Danforth after a dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. Our favourites - Spanakopita - the spinach pie, the Loukoumades - honey puffs and the Galatkoboureko - the custard pie. Yummy. The slices of all the pies are big enough to be shared by two people and you'll... More

They serve food Very different than what I'm used to but they taste great. One concern is that I think the address given on this site may be incorrect, check with other listings before you make the trip.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
