What to try

Of course, if you’ve never tried Greek food, let alone Greek desserts before, it can be a little overwhelming. This is where Apollo Bakery comes in to revolutionise your tastebuds and change your life. 


The Baklava is perhaps the most well-known Greek pastry, and you may have seen it on menus at other restaurants, even if you’ve never tried it. Greek fishermen first brought the recipe to Athens, where the Greek dough-making method known as phyllo helped make the Baklava cement itself as a speciality dish. This involves rolling the dough as thinly as possible and enhancing the texture of the Baklava. 

There are many other versions, with Armenian bakers using cloves and cinnamon, whereas the original Baklava credited to the Assyrians used nuts and honey. However, we believe that the Greek method is far superior, even if we are a little biased.  

Almond Cake

Almonds and walnuts were a staple of ancient Greek recipes thanks to the wealth of availability across the Greek landscape. So, it’s no surprise to find such nuts present in almost every sweet treat that has survived the test of time. 

It boasts a delectable sponge covered with a sweet, creamy topping and sprinkled with almonds over the top. This gives each bite a little more oomph, combining the soft, airy texture of the sponger with an almond crunch that makes it almost impossible not to go back for more. 


The Galaktoboureko is a milk-based dessert that is a firm favourite among modern Greeks, and it doesn’t take much for it to become a favourite of anyone else, either. It shares a lot of similarities with another famous Greek dessert, the Bougatsa, but the Galaktoboureko is a more syrupy experience that hits the sweet spot perfectly. 

It’s a great choice for gatherings as the syrup easily fills the stomach, and although it can be a little tricky to make for beginners, we like to think we have perfected it. 

And many more 

These are just the tip of the Greek patisserie iceberg, and even if these desserts don’t appeal to you (until you see them in person, that is), there is still an array of delicious Greek desserts such as Kadaifi, Karidopita (Walnut Pie), and Tricele to try.
