Galaktobouriko in Astoria

For a long while I was a fan of LEFKOS PIRGOS (under the el just before Ditmars Avenue) for galaktobouriko(sp?) and their other desserts.

Something's changed there and I'm still looking for the ultimate in this Greek pastry. Any suggestions?

  1. Lefkos Pirigos is undergoing a renovation right now, but the galaktoboureko at Stamatis on 23rd, just a block off of 31st was very good - served slightly warm actually. You might also want to try Artopolis bakery on 31st. I haven't personally tried that there, but other stuff has been wonderful.

      Artopolis GB is terrific. Really flaky crust! You'll love it.

    2. This place is *always* worthy of a visit anytime you're in or around Astoria.
