Artopolis serves a massive array of baked goods, along with some of the strongest coffee we’ve ever had. As soon as you walk into the bakery, which is located in a strip mall in northern Astoria, you’re hit with smells from the kitchen that will make you want to consume as many of these desserts as possible, immediately. They specialize in sweet and savory Greek pastries, like galaktoboureko, which is basically custard on flaky phyllo dough. As for the coffee, it’s similar to Turkish coffee, which if you’re not familiar, is very strong.
