Omonia Next Door is Awesome!

It's been about 2 months since Omonia Next Door, an offshoot of the original Omonia Cafe opened.  Walking by the other day, the storefront immediately caught my eye, as it looked modern and had an attention grabbing display of breads that looked oh-so-fresh.

Naturally, I walked in to check out their offering and was very impressed.  When I tell you that this bakery has nearly everything under the sun, I mean it - cupcakes, red velvet cake, cookies, bread, muffins, bagels, coffee.  I only peeked in for a few minutes, and didn't yet order a treat, but what I saw was very impressive and the staff was lovely.

Something else that attracted me was the quaint outdoor garden they have in the back, where you can take your treat and enjoy it in the fresh air.  It seems like a quiet, chill area to relax and I'll make sure to take advantage of it soon.

A full review will come in the near future, but in the meantime, I wanted to give you a quick heads-up.  Has anyone tried it yet? And if so, what do you think?

  1. I've heard so much good reviews about Omonia Next Door in some City Dining website like Urban Spoon. Especially their choco cookies and cupcakes. I hope someday i can visit or drop in this store : )

    I just had a date there-the cupcake was really dry (I believe it was stale) and the bread pudding was eh-the iced coffee was great. Maybe I just went on a bad day!
