Sweet Taste of Greece
Karavan has been synonymous for traditional Eastern Mediterranean sweets for more than 30 years, and it is certain and without exaggeration that when asking an Athenian for the best traditional baklava sweets, the answer will be “at Karavan, of course”!
Karavan Café has been the flagship store to brand in southern Athens since 1983. It has changed location a couple of times but always within the same street, centrally in downtown Glyfada.
In 2014 a cozy, small coffee corner has been added, offering freshly brewed Milanese Attibassi coffee to accompany your favorite sweet.
George Andoniadis, co-founder of Karavan brand, having always had a favor for the Glyfada shop, now dedicates his skills and work exclusively to it. The gorgeous, mouth watering smell of freshly baked Tsoureki and Baklava is giving excellent prove of his presence.
Together with his team of three, George is running Karavan Café as his personal favorite place to be - shopping fresh ingredients every morning, preparing, tasting and baking his favorite siropiasta and this oh so fantastic tsoureki milkbread, - you can find him in the afternoons selling all these delicious goodies and having a chat with old and new customers and friends. Quite often the conversation continues over a cup of coffee or tea, and to newcomers Karavan café might seem more like a friendly meeting place than a simple sweet shop.
