About
Panagiotis and Nektaria started their business in March 2001, with the simple goal of sharing what they already produced - their famous pistachios. Panagiotis, a farmer by trade, has spent 30 years working with pistachio production and cultivation. Nektaria is a passionate confectioner, putting all her love into the sweets she makes using pistachios. Today, at their shop located on the pedestrian street Pan. Ireioti 57, behind Aegina's well-known fish market, you can find Panagiotis' pistachios freshly roasted every day - with or without salt, shelled or raw. Also try the famous housemade pastelli, made with toasted sesame, pistachios and honey, and the pistachio marsipan with caramel. Or go for the traditional almond biscuits, baklava with pistachios, or one of the many spoon sweets and marmalades. - The pistachio came to Aegina in the early 1900s, when N. Peroglou, a doctor, brought the first trees with him from Syria. He kept his plantation hidden at first, but once the secret got out, more plantations slowly but steadily spread over the island, and today the nuts are produced mainly through monoculture. The Aegina pistachio was grafted onto the Chios terebinth tree, and is a variety unique for Aegina island.

My friend and I went to Aegina for a day trip and stumbled upon this lovely store. It's a family owned business and the goods were absolutely amazing. We also got to meet the pastry chef (owner's son), George. His baklava was the best I ever had...I bought a couple of boxes to bring to the USA. They packaged things very well. If given the opportunity, I would absolutely go back there again!!

the shop was our last stop on Aegina and it was worth the wait. The staff are warm and helpful. We sampled a variety of items before we bought. I am only sorry that I did not buy more quantity of their wonderful pistachio treats.

This shop literally is amazing. My partner and I had researched places to see and go before we went and we came across this just by chance. We took the 30 minute ferry trip to Aegina just for the pistachios. From the minute we walked in the owner approached us and asked us to sample some of the delicacies and recommended lots of goodies for us to bring back home with us. Since coming back home friends and family haven't stopped commenting on how delicious the treats were.

Thoroughly recommend this place to everyone!!!

The layout is so attractive but this sweet things place is a lot more than a lolly/candy shop elsewhere. Most stuff started life as fresh food.

Our No. 1 pick is the candied (ie glacé) pistachios. I’m guessing nowhere else would have these so it is likely to ha an ‘only in Aegina’ thing. We got a baklava version AND a jar to take home. I so wanted to get the flour-free chocolate bread croutons but our packing won’t allow this!

So many interesting things and the locals clearly buy spices by the gram here.

Produce aficionados look no further than Mourtzis. This is no run-of-the-mill shop - their pistachios are deep in flavor with a reddish hue and thin shells. What's more is that the store sources its pistachios from the family's farm right on the island of Aegina.

Make sure you grab some warm pistachio to go - pair it with some feta and Assyrtko wine and you're off to a great start!
