Greek Australian brothers open dessert bar with a twist in Victoria


A dessert bar named VID Bar (Village Ice-cream Dessert Bar), has just opened in Highton, Victoria, by two Greek brothers, Spiros and Nicholas Alesios, The Geelong Advertiser reports.

The bar, which serves 31 flavours of ice creams, Greek doughnuts and sweets such as loukoumades and galaktoboureko, brings a taste of Greece to sweet lovers.

For the owners, the business is a way to pay tribute to their home traditions and their past.

“Our sister has an ice cream shop in St Leonards, we thought we might go in our own direction and create something a little bit closer to home,” Spiros told The Geelong Advertiser.

The brothers, who love desserts and ice cream, believe that Greek doughnuts are something new to the market and they aim to fill this gap with their recent business move.

“There’s nothing really that’s been done like that here,” Spiro said and stressed his plans to expand the bar’s dining space.

“Our bar has something sweet, but something that is also different. It will appeal to most,” he concluded.
