Our Story

From Larisa to Leiden, the passion stays the same.

It all started a few years ago. Christianna and Akis, a couple from Greece, decided to spent the night at Leiden during a trip from the Hague to Amsterdam.

After a short walk they both came to realize the same thing: this place met all the requirements for the fresh start both of them craved for. Besides, the similarities between Leiden and their hometown Larisa were striking. Both cities count a little more than a hundred thousand residents, have an active student community and are are built by the riverside. Even the first letter of their names is the same!

A small abandoned shop became the nest of a simple yet powerful vision. Christianna and Akis were here to stay! Soon they decided to bring the most ‘‘warm’’ and memorable tastes of Greece to the Dutch town and create a hybrid deli company that will offer the best of both cuisines.

Under these circumstances, Deli Pies & Coffee Co. was born.

Located in a cozy and elegant space designed by Akis himself, Deli Pies & Coffee Co. offers a large variety of homemade Greek pies and bakery goodies ready to satisfy even the most demanding customer. Apart from this, the shop offers an excellent selection of beverages (tea, herbs), wines and natural delicatessen products (e.g. honey, feta cheese, yogurt, vinegar, olive oil, marmalades). From Crete to Santorini and from Meteora to The Peloponnese, a visit to Deli Pies & Coffee Co. will make you discover every corner of Greece… bite by bite.
And what about the coffee?


This is where the Dutch culture comes in!
Akis and Christianna have surely managed to adapt the infamous Greek coffee mania to the Western standards. The catalog includes almost a dozen of different flavors as well as a bunch of delicious accompaniments, many of which are suitable for vegans or diabetics.
