Back in 1965 Michail Kokolakis begins running a café-pastry shop, given the name Gloria, exactly at the same spot as today, at 3 Pines area, on Chrisotomou street. It is one of the first cafes in the area and the only one equipped with TV at that period!
Gloria is getting well known and starts having a large audience.Learn More
Was searching all over Greece for galaktoboureko and finally found it this morning at Gloria! They specialize in sweet pastries and you can see and smell the magic happening in the kitchen adjacent to the front counter. So delightful... reminds me of my mother. Thank you for being there Gloria!
We were having a small wedding in Crete, the cake which we have chosen in Gloria was perfect and really delicious. The taste of lemon combined with vanilla, everything was as agreed. I highly recommend this confectionery.
One of the best patisseries.... Not just in Crete! Top specialties: macaroons, galaktompureko (custard filled pastry) and everything chocolate made. If you are an ice-cream lover, try the pistachio taste. Delicious 😋
Local speaking! The best baklava and galaktompoureko in Heraklion! Other places try to make that good but it cannot be compared. Gloria is making by far the best.
They told me to go to that particular patisserie for galaktobureko....I go at 21:30 and they were bringing it out at that MOMENT fresh and hot. Let alone that they wanted to treat me sweet because I would wait 5 minutes. Excellent and kind BRAVO!!!!
The galaktoboureko of our childhood.... Unsurpassed.... Macarons that melt in the mouth and finally wonderful original creations, full of aromas and less sugar!!!!!! Well done to the creators!!!!! ❤️
Unbelievable !!! I am from Athens, the galaktobureko is far the best in Greece
The best in Heraklion. We grew up with their sweets, from the age of 10 I remember my father bringing us their galaktoboureko and it was a party at home... I've been 35 and he still brings us. keep up the good work. we all try galaktobureko.
A wonderful place, wonderful staff - we were met by amazing Elena who helped us choose incredible desserts - it was not easy among so many, all certainly very good, as this is a classical patisserie existing since 1965. What a luck to find this place! ♥️
