Greek Cafe and Bakery is expected to open on Davis Street near Bishop Avenue within two weeks. The restaurant will carry four or five varieties of Greek pastries, plus "any kind of Greek food you can think of," said Mary Ann Tatakis, whos daughter, Joanna Tatakis, owns the restaurant. Joanna Tatakis also makes all the pastries. Her first restaurant, which has the same name, has been open in Duncanville for about four years.
Mary Ann Tatakis says she is an "old Oak Cliff girl." She graduated from Sunset High School in 1965, when she was still Mary Ann Cariotis. She and her husband were born in Greece.
Greek Cafe and Bakery will deliver within about a 3-mile radius. Once it gets rolling, they might add several kinds of bread to the bakery menu, Mary Ann said.
