“Dekatiano”
(Kind of Greek brunch)

To most Greek breakfast is just a cup of coffee. However our grandfathers used to have what was called “dekatiano”. “Deka” in Greek means ten, so dekatiano was a quick and simple meal, such as some cheese and a koulouri (the Greek bagel) people used to eat around 10 o’clock to keep them full until lunch. However our brunch menu will be quite different from the “dekatiano” our grandfathers used to eat…

A sample menu may include:

  • Kagianas
  • Moussaka pie
  • Cheese pie
  • Chicken gyros with pita bread
  • Tzatziki
  • Greek desserts

Price: € 60 per person | Duration: 2-3 hours
