The staff of Life: Giorgos and Zoi
We’ve had this dire pun lined up for weeks, ever since we saw the sign that said the new zakaroplasteio, bakery, in the hipster zone they’re still not calling SOBA – South of Barramares – was called ‘ζωή’, ‘zoi’, ‘life’ in Greek. Until we popped in on its opening day, Saturday, we didn’t realize that it is in fact a double pun: ζωή is also the name of one of the co-owners, pictured above with her partner Giorgos. The new bakery/cake shop not only stocks the staff of life from Kyra Leni’s splendid Glossa bakery, but also exotic artisanal breads, cakes, savouries, sweets, fresh coffee and soft drinks. There’s even some beautiful if minimal indoor seating, made in the owners’ Techni& workshop next door. As SOBA continues to get as hip as, er, gollygosh, we think it’s important that we all support our local zakaroplasteio.
