Welcome to Sakis’ world of fine food and good taste.
We’re taking you to our favorite spot for any time of the day and any delight to the palate. A rich breakfast, a light lunch, the right dose of caffeine or the daily dessert. All of that in the place where the crowding, the noise and the stress end, leaving you to just scents and flavors.
The hero of today’s story is Sakis, born and raised in Serres. The heroine is his bougatsa, born and developed in that same northern Greek city.
Already as a boy Sakis wanted to become a master baker. Today, the veteran pie maker is proud of his craft and all he has achieved. After years of learning and improving, Sakis opened his first pie shop in Limenas three decades ago, in 1987. His two daughters and son assist him and gradually grow into the baking business.
The offer includes food from delightful old recipes, as well as modern modifications, all of which will put a grin on your face.
Apart from the famous Serres bougatsa, made the old way with cheese, onion-laced minced meat or spinach, as well as the sweet version with vanilla filling, there are cottage pies with feta and spinach or yellow cheese and ham.
Depending on what you take, the food goes well with kefir or „ariani,“ a Greek yoghurt. There is also plain or chocolate milk. For those who want to stick to what they eat at home or picky children unwilling to try something new, there are mini-pizzas and sandwiches.
Sakis’ bougatsas, some frozen and some done, have traveled the world! People asked friends visiting Thassos to bring them their ration of it and the shop always obliged, packing the food for those missing their summer destination.
Now Sakis’ Serraiki Bougatsa has a tradition stretching back more than 40 years.
For the marquee product, he and the Karabigiki family use the best ingredients in line with a traditional recipe. Though the shop is set up so visitors can see the popular Hristos in the back, stretching and twirling the dough and making packets that will after baking become delicious bougatsa, some details remain in the family.
That is why there is a long queue every morning in front of Sakis’ place. People wait to get their serving, some to eat it right away, others wrapped for the beach. Mostly it’s all smiles, in spite of the wait, because it is bougatsa, tiropita, spanaki or vanilia at the end of the line.
We have no doubt that on your first morning in Limenas you should pay a visit to Sakis bakery on the waterfront and check if we overstated. Consider it while you munch away, gazing at the sea and let us know if we were wrong. Or right!
