Feel like Greece @ Hellas Cakes, a Greek pastry shop in Melbourne, Australia!
“Tucked around the corner from Richmond Station, Hellas Cakes has been baking baklava, galaktoboureko, kourambiethes, tsourekia and other Greek treats for locals, for the past 50 years. Founded in 1962 by post-war immigrant and pastry chef Iraklis Kenos, in 1970 George Laliotis joined the team, and in 1977 after Iraklis had left to start Hellas Confectionery, a partnership was formed with George Kantaras. Today the cake shop is managed by their sons Peter Laliotis & Andrew Kantaras, and a third generation of Laliotis’ are also being taught Hellas patissiere secrets. While Richmonds Greek Community has dispersed in recent years, Peter and Andrew have remained determined to keep their fathers’ business alive and to serve the new generation of Richmond locals. “
