The word “starata” has a dual meaning; firstly, it means that something consists of wheat but it also designates honestly-spoken words.  I can see both concepts in the freshly-baked pies that you can get at this location. Phyllo pies are a great part of traditional Greek cuisine, rooted in the times back when every house had a wood-burning oven and women had to be creative with simple, seasonal goods.

The owners of Starata take great pride in their fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and the phyllo that is prepared daily in front of their customers. There is a wide range of savory pies, such as those with tomato, mushroom, or kasseri (a type of rich yellow cheese) filling. If you have a sweet tooth you can try the milk pie which contains a mixture of cream and sugar and a delicious browned top. Their pies make me reminiscent of the ones my own grandmother made, and they provide a great option for a snack or light lunch.
