The best Bougatsa of Crete and other ... delights

With fresh ingredients from selected small Cretan producers, with fresh dough sheet (Phyllo in Greek – hence our name) that is artfully opened by hand every day and with a tradition that begins 100 years ago with Apostolos Salkintzis, the bougatsa master of Hamindiye (today Mouradie) of Smyrna, we make genuine Cretan bougatsa here for four generations.

And not only that! The dough sheet art of grandpa Apostolos and other Smyrna recipes gave us the possibility to offer you unique flavors and incomparable delights. Bougatsa with myzithra, unique in Crete, with or without local honey. Vegetable pies, cheese pies, traditional pies but also traditional sweets such as Byzantino and of course kadaifi, baklava and our amazing authentic loukoumades.

the journey of a family...

When the crispy handmade dough sheet (phyllo) from Smyrna arrived in Crete, it was reassembled with mizithra and together formed the notorious bougatsa of Mr. Apostolos in 1922. When Apostolos Salkintzis set his foot in Lion’s Square, he decided to build here his little hangout which he called, “The Lions”. His sons, Anestos and Kostas, continued his legacy after he passed out, and thus this beautiful patisserie came, after all these years, to the hands of his grandson, Giannis.
