Greek bakery owners overcoming impacts of COVID-19


A French boulangerie in Sydney’s south is rising above the trials and tribulations of Covid lockdowns. 

Queens Pastri House owner Patricia Kafarakis counts herself lucky to have recently celebrated five years in the business. 

“When a vision becomes a goal, the goal becomes a dream, but when one door closes, another one opens – then it’s no longer called a dream, it’s called evolving,” she writes on Facebook.

“If we have learnt anything in the past two years, it’s that if Covid 20-21 didn’t kill us, then we are certainly crazy enough, strong enough, and definitely believe in us to know that giving you our best is not our best yet.”

Bayside Council has approved plans to move the bakery in Ramsgate 10 minutes down the road from its current location.
