Some great sweets, a dozen of great sweets! If you are familiar with the Turkish delights like mpaklavas, saragli, ekmek, ravani and so many other you will be surprised that every one of them is here and sometimes they taste even better. Like in many other sides of daily life (words, architecture etc) the ottoman influences are rather strong in the greek kitchen.

So you have two choices, the first one is to visit one of the many patisserie and eat as much as you can. The typical sweet is mpaklavas of course and you can try it with ice cream.

DIETHNES is my favorite place, there is one at the square, another one at Molos(Mavili square) and in some other parts of the city. You can sit and choose or buy some for the house or as a gift.

KOLONIASOS is a good alternative, also with some great sweets (the same products, different sizes etc) and I used to take some from there too :) I found one at Averof & Mitropoleos and another one at Karamanli 39 (Molos).

What to buy: close your eyes and choose! :)

Directions: there are many of them in the center
