Christopher's Cake Shop
Long-running bakery serving traditional Greek sweets and other treats.
Christopher's Cake Shop first opened the doors of its Surry Hills shop way back in 1955 (originally as Athens Cake Shop). In the years since, the business has stretched its reach from Sydney's inner city to the suburbs with stores in Ashfield, Eastgardens, Kogarah and Hurstville.
Here, you'll find traditional Greek sweets such as baklava, kataifi, paximathia, melomakaronas(an almond honey biscuit), plus a wide range of cakes and other biscuits.
Although it might seem a little mainstream, take the opportunity to pick up the mud cake — it's as perfect as cake and chocolate put together could possibly get. Hint: take it home and warm it up in the microwave for 20 seconds — it'll melt the fine layer of chocolate on top and make the ganache centre oh-so-perfectly gooey.
