Our Story

Continuing The Legacy

In 1975, John Pappas came to the United States from his hometown of Tragano, Greece with only a couple of dollars in his pocket. While knowing very little of the English language, he was determined to make a better life for his daughter and wife. Making ends meet, he slowly discovered a passion for cooking while working in restaurants. Incorporating his family recipes handed down from generation to generation with popular Mediterranean cuisine, his style of cooking quickly became popular. Now many of his authentic recipes have become famous, including his award winning, “Pappas Greek Dressing.”
Now his son Nicholas Pappas, taking over the family business, has always wanted to carry on the great tradition of his family recipes. With Greek City Cafe, we continue the legacy of healthier Mediterranean cuisine in a modern/contemporary fast casual setting. So, take a step back in time, and enjoy the old world recipes that have been enjoyed for decades, now in your own city… Greek City Cafe. Enjoy!
