The spanakopita and tiropita are some of the best in the city - if you visit the Danforth location! Worth taking home a box of treats and the sweet loukoumades are delicious too! Skip the new lakeshore location - the standards are not the same and the food was over-cooked and salty and totally disappointing after the fares of the... More

The pies are great value for money and the honey balls are pretty delicious. They're not like anything I've tasted before, in a good way. They're not for everyone though. I recommend this place to anyone.

I first visited this place when a friend brought me over ten years ago. Since then, I visit whenever I can to get some spanakopita. It's the best around! Crispy layers of phyllo with yummy spinach filling. It's always fresh because it's so busy! Their tiropita is also good but doesn't compare to their spanakopita. Their hot chocolate is nice... More

Fresh and flaky spanakopita. Always a great snack. I am 'mom of the day' when I show up at home with loukamadis from Athens Pastry!

Fabulous spot on the Danforth to pick up treats to take-home or to have a coffee and snack - their spanakopita is always fresh and usually warm from the oven and their loukoumades are to die for - they also make a wonderful Americano - the best on the Danforth!

Absolutely the best Greek pastries in T.O.! Our favorites are the Loukomades and the Galaktoboureko, but all their pastries are fresh and the pastry is crispy! You cannot go wrong here!

My very favourite item at Athen's is the loukoumades, especially when they're fresh out of the fryer. These are sinfully delicious, and so cheap I could just eat them all day if I didn't...care about my figure or health. :) I've also tried the spanakopita, the tiropita and the kreatopita and I've loved them all. Just get it fresh!

Don't miss this place on the Danforth. Simply put, best spanikopita anywhere I've been. The tiropita, bougatsa, and loukoumades are also outstanding. You can't go wrong here. Worth the trip.

We go to Athens Pastry for several years now, eating in at the few small tables they have inside or just taking out . The ambiance is typical Greek, with most of the patrons ordering and carrying their conversation in Greek. They take their instant coffee made with Greek water and enjoy it along some amazing pastry. Coming back year... More
