Amazing authentic Greek bakery

This bakery is amazing. Try finikia! Try spanakopita! Try kouramberies (butter cookies). You can also buy a tray of spanakopitas for your guests. It is one of these rare gems in New York, which specializes in one thing (baking) and do it really really good. It is a family owned and run place so you... read more

This place is really special: all the delicious pastries, sweet or savory, and the lovely family that owns it always has a nice chat about the neighborhood..

I used to walk here as kid when I lived in Hell's Kitchen. Thirty years ago, there were many more mom & pop shops like this all up and down 9th Avenue. No more. The days of family pride in such businesses is disappearing, so make it a point to visit here and scarf down both savory and sweet Greek... More

A must see that's been there for years. Great cookies! Enjoy a stop and get some baklava or meal to prepare.

We went to Poseidon on my son's birthday for some of his favorite galaktoboureko. It was delicious, as was the baklavah, spanakopita, poppy seed danish and apricot roll. This is a wonderful family owned Greek bakery and we will certainly stop by again on our next visit to New York City.

For Greek and Austrian baked treats, this is the place. Featured on our food on foot tour. Been there since 1923 over four generations of baking history.

I've been going to Poseidon Bakery for over twenty years for their authentic Greek pastries. I especially like the spanakopita (spinach and feta pie). You can get a hot one to go or take home a bagful. I also like the little cocktail sized one -- you can buy a tray of them, frozen, and bake at home, or pre-order... More

I would definitely recommend going to this bakery, the owner was very friendly and personable. She was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us (visitors to New York) very good recommendations. The food was delicious and all homemade.

Second only to my own Mother's and Thea Dede's Greek pastries is this 93yr old Bakery with a reputation for creating Greek Pastries that fail to disappoint. My Grandfather(Papou) from Plomari brought me here over 50yrs ago and I still remember the sweet smells and free samples of those wonderful treats. Television and Movie Celebrity customers adorn the walls a... More

The bakery is nummy. The lovely lady at the counter was so kind. The prices are a tad high *$4.50 for one pastry but the quality is beyond delicious. I'd love to come back again.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
