“Must stop by!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Wandered into the shop today looking for gifts. They have a great range of stuff (food, sweets, liqueurs) that they allow you to try, and the quality of the products is excellent. The owner was friendly and welcoming, and the experience was more of an introduction to Greek products than a shopping trip. Love the place!

“Very knowledgeable”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stopped by this shop and were kindly greeted yet never pressured. They had a very nice selection and gladly answered all of my questions. I would recommend going by and checking out this business.

“Great, traditional gifts to bring home!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

No key chains, t-shirts and things you see everywhere else. This shop was great. Clean, new, great products, great prices. The owner was most helpful. A great stop from someone who appreciated the business.

“Excellent shopping spot”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Came here to taste and buy olive oil to take home after falling in love with Greek cuisine. This shop was perfect. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable owner who allowed us to try all of the different oils and helped us to choose the best ones for us. A huge range to choose from and very reasonably priced. Packaged them all up to be easily transported in bubble wrap etc. Lots of other Greek food too- olives, sweets, honey, nuts etc. Can highly recommend.

“Wonderful shop - stop here in the Plaka!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Excellent prices and great selection! I wandered all around the Plaka and this brand new store had the best prices. The owner was very helpful and was able to recommend some great olive oils. It is also a lovely little shop too. No best price here...you pay the advertised price but it is still low.
