Greek Cafe and Bakery to open in Bishop Arts

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.

    I am hoping (after reading comments) that they will be serving Greek Food at this cafe rather than Lebanese fare such as Falafel and Tabouleh. Yes I know the Greeks have something similar to a Falafel (Revithokeftedes) and maybe it will be on the menu so the person who wants Falafels at least won’t be dissapointed. Looking forward to the opening of this restaurant, I do love the diversity we are getting here these days, and hope we have a middle eastern restaurant opening in the near future as well.

    Hooray! Now, if we could only get a noodle shop down here in the Cliff. Or a good curry restaurant.

    There is no indication on this webpage as to the date the information on the grand opening of the Greek Cafe was posted. It says “two weeks”. Two weeks from when. Could you be more specific and tell me the exact date? I can hardly wait. Thank you.

    Hurray! I nearly died when I heard Grill 400 is now to be Tex-Mex. Another Tex-Mex in Oak Cliff? Seriously? Bring on the tabouli – I’ll be first in line!

    I hope they have a falafel sandwich!
