What is it like in a traditional Greek bakery? I explore the Kairi Bakery on Lipsi Island.
Kairi Bakery is a traditional Greek bakery adjacent to Lipsi harbor. It’s open 24 hours a day and serves not only fresh bread but a variety of freshly prepared meals throughout the day. One thing’s for sure, you’ll not find a better place for breakfast or fresh pastries on the island!
It would be hard to find a healthier start to the day than a traditional Greek breakfast. As a matter of fact, people in this part of the world live longer than most other parts. A traditional Greek breakfast is made up of bread, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, egg and of course, feta cheese. One thing’s for sure, after eating this breakfast you’ll be feeling good for the rest of the day.
Coffee and Fresh Orange Juice
Greece has a big coffee culture therefore Greeks know how to prepare an excellent coffee. As evidence, check out the Greek city of Thessaloniki which has thousands of coffee shops! Moreover, expect a good coffee at the bakery. Finally, to complement the coffee, I recommend a freshly squeezed orange juice.
Freshly Baked Bread
Bread is baked each morning therefore freshness is guaranteed. Furthermore, the bread is cooked using both traditional and modern ovens. Fourteen different varieties of bread are baked onsite. Don’t be afraid to ask the friendly staff for a quick tour of the bakery.
Greek Cheese Pie
One of the most famous Greek foods is a cheese pie. Kairi bakery freshly bake hundreds of these each week. As a result, you must try a Greek cheese pie.
Cakes and Cream Cakes
Each day the bakery prepares fresh cream cakes. If you have a sweet tooth, there is sufficient choice to keep you happy for months.
Lipsi Island can get quite hot in the afternoon. This is a good time to sit in the shade at the bakery and enjoy an ice cream.
24 Hour Mini Supermarket
Lipsi Island is relatively small and therefore does not have a large supermarket. However, in the Kairi Bakery you can buy essential products at fair prices. Additionally, if you’re after a late night drink, you can even buy beers for not much more than a euro. There’s also a large flat screen TV where you can enjoy live sports.
