Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia

Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia are captured in these priceless pics from the 1950s

We love these awesome photos of the iconic 1950s Greek cafés & milk bars of Australia that brought ‘exotic’ food and art deco glamour to our suburbs and country towns. Since the 1930s, Greek families had opened cafés & milk bars across Australia at all hours, seven days a week with some having American names like The Niagara, Astoria and The Paragon and decorated in glamorous art deco style while serving coffee, milkshakes, fancy sundaes, steak and eggs with chips. For hundreds of images and stories, check out the website for the new book Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia, which documentary photographer Effy Alexakis and historian Leonard Janiszewski have spent 30 years researching, and as it turns out, were uniquely Australian. Just another reason to love this country! 🙂
