Hey everyone!! I wanted to share a little story of this lovely Pastry Shop with its amazing Greek Pastries which is located in Ioannina, Greece. The city of Ioannina is the largest in the Epirus region with its absolutely amazing forests, mountains, and lake that can be visited all year round. Not only does this mountain region have gorgeous views it also has amazing FOOD and mouthwatering Greek Pastries. 🙂 Just to get something clear there is much more to this see in this area, for instance the Archaeological Museum, which is a must see but as a Food Blogger I concentrate on this part…hehehe
The first time we visited this shop was when I was 12 years old, on vacation in Greece and traveling around with my parents. We needed to stop and take a break and they found this shop which has been around since 1920!! Shocked? Surprised? You shouldn’t be when your that good you stick around for a very long time. 🙂 This was the first time I tried a piece of Custard Pie that wasn’t my mom’s, grandma’s aunts etc. and I loved it!! as you can see in the photo that I posted below, my husband on the other hand is a fan of everything else that exists in there.
Since that first time we visited and whenever we would back to Greece on vacation we would always travel and stop by enjoy our lovely pastries and continue our trip. We continued this little tradition with my husband each year. Once we enter the boarders our first stop is of course this amazing Souvlaki joint that we love and then our next stop at this fantastic pastry shop. They also make a MEAN Capuccino Freddo 🙂
I wanted to thank the staff that was working on the day we arrived, they were very helpful in all aspects, they were even so kind as to shut off some lights for a few minutes so that I can take some photos with the no light reflections. They all had a huge smile!!
