Vasilis recently interviewed Dimitris Danas of Danas Deli Café in Marrickville, Sydney. Dimitris opened this shop as a delicatessen in 1962! Yes… 1962! So, it has been going for 55 years!
The front section of the shop is the café, run by Dimitris’ daughters, Tina and Olga, while the back section remains a delicatessen- with so many of our favourite Greek products- run by Dimitris and his wife, Agathi.
‘This is an amazing story! Dimitris and his family have seen so many changes in their area and they have adapted to these changes to remain open and continue to service the local community,’ explains Vasilis, ‘No wonder Danas was awarded a Long Service Award by Marrickville Business Association in 2014!’
