Worlds collide as the traditional Greek phyllo, honey and nut concoction is paired with vanilla ice cream. They are famous for a reason!
Don’t have time to stop in? Drive up for your favorite Greek specialties on Winthrop Avenue between East Boulevard and E. Worthington Avenue. Combination dinner plates, pita sandwiches and assorted pastry boxes are available. For faster service, print and complete the drive-thru menu and present it to the drive-thru attendant.
These popular Greek doughnuts are served warm, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Grab a box and eat like a champion – according to the poet Callimachus, treats very similar to loukoumades were served to the winners of the ancient Greek Olympics.
Individual and boxed pastries are available under the dessert tent. Also available at Inside Dining and Take Out. From homemade baklava to galaktoboureko and koulouria, you’ll want to save room for dessert!
