Faces of Astoria: The Baker


We arrived in this country in 1969, my husband was invited to play football for a team called ‘Greek America” We came here for a week, but this week turned into years, we are approximately for 50 years here. We don’t regret it, we love this country, but we love Greece too. I had five shops, very big and we had contact with many people, but ‘’Lefkos Pyrgos’’ is an established store which has its own people, its own clientele. You know, people come from far away, to buy sweets from Lefkos Pyrgos. We have the cheesecake – baklava, our bougatsa the spinach pie, which we make all the time. We make a special spinach pie whose phyllo stays inside the oil for a week. As you can imagine, many people have come to these stores But of course, things have changed now, both in Astoria and everywhere. I don’t think that many Greeks come here now, at least, as they used to do in the past.

    Μιλάω ως άνθρωπος που είχε την τύχη να είναι πελάτης για αρκετές φορές .

    Δεν βλέπω την ώρα να ξαναπάω .
    ……..
    Μιλώ με απόλυτη ειλικρίνεια .
    Μη φανταστεί κάνεις ότι είμαι βαλτός ή τίποτα τέτοιο ….

    Είναι ένα καταπληκτικό παραδοσιακό ζαχαροπλαστείο/καφέ . Το συνιστώ ΑΝΕΠΙΦΥΛΑΚΤΑ .
