With a history spanning three generations, the Kostarelos dairy is renowned all over Greece and abroad for its high-quality, delicious cheeses. So when the owners decided to open a modern deli in the stylish Kolonaki district in central Athens, it was certain to become a foodie destination in its own right.
At the welcoming, stylish Kostarelos store, you can either taste or buy the full range of their excellent products, such as their award-winning feta (soft, hard, or matured for 12 months), their low-fat graviera, their kefalotyri aged for 24 months, and their velvety strained yogurts.
And if the mere sight and smell of the products whets your appetite for a proper breakfast or lunch, there’s plenty to choose from: fresh salads, hot and cold sandwiches, a splendid Greek cheese fondue, as well as a unique platter with samples of 20 fine cheeses from all over Greece.
Make sure to try one of their unique sandwich recipes, such as the tsalafouti (a type of cream cheese) with roast chicken, yoghurt, carrots and roasted red peppers.
