excellent

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.

We stopped in here as we were wandering around NYC last week and enjoyed the pastries we purchased from this old school bakery. We took some back to our hotel to have as a late night snack and they were just as wonderful as they were when we purchased them earlier in the day. I have never seen such a... More

We tried their baked goods at the Ninth Avenue Festival, and the Spinach pie was the best I have ever eaten! The phylo dough was flaky and the spinach, feta cheese, and other ingredients were the best. Also, their desserts are worth the trip.

This Greek bakery has both savory and sweet classic Greek goods. There are no frills here, just an authentic bakery with a warm, old school, family vibe. They let the treats speak for themselves. And, though some items hard to pronounce, they do...in Greek, of course.  I've had many Baklavas in my day, and, I figured that an authentic Greek... More

We went for some Baklava, which was good, but didn't quite stand up to our memories of the delicious treat in Greece, however we also each got one of these little delicious shortbread cookies that literally melted in your mouth. There is no space in the bakery to sit, so you have to take your treats to go, but workers... More

Our guide brought us here on a walking food tour. This place has been open for like 70 years. Had all types of Greek desserts as well as a variety of Streusels. We got a Greek pastry and a Streusel and were pleased with both. If you have a sweet tooth and are in the area you should definitely stop... More

Hubby and I stopped at this Bakery and had fresh Spanakopita right out of the oven. Delicious. Located in Hell's Kitchen. A family run bakery since 1923. Definitely a true gem! They are the last baker in NYC which make their own filo dough. Definitely stop in, you won't regret it.
