It seems Lefkos Pirgos is doing some renovating. Rapture on astorians.com took this picture without being attacked by any old ladies (we hope your luck has held and no evil curse has since manifested itself). A few changes to the décor that we’d like to see:
- An even fancier cake stand (perhaps with the addition of some neon lights and fog)
- A make-over for Old Mrs. Grumpy Pants (maybe looking good would make her feel good too).
- Signage clarifying the “ok to photograph” areas in the café.
Byzantio is no more. One assumes their ongoing battle with Zodiac to be the top café on the corner of
Santorini Café on Steinway has closed which we are all for because we have never been there and this make one less café we have to review (though, realistically another café will likely pop-up in it’s place thus brining us back to even).
