I moved to the Danforth (Greektown) back in ’99. I loved Greek desserts and souvlaki but traditional savory phyllo pastries were a new discovery. We popped into Akropolis one night and grabbed a couple of cheese pies. Needless to say we were hooked! I think we ate the feta and ricotta cheese pie every week for a year! Since then we’ve tried spanakopita (spinach, feta and ricotta cheese), bougatsa (custard filled) and the meat pie.
Akropolis makes the best sweets like baklava, kataifi, melomakarona, and loukoumades. No matter how carefully I eat them, I still get covered in a sticky gooey syrup!
I really enjoy the atmosphere of this friendly, comfortable, family place. I come here when I want to sit for a while and sketch – listen to Greek music and old friends chat quietly over a frappe.
