Opening: Alfa Piehouse

Alfa Piehouse brings traditional Greek cuisine and specialties to Washington D.C this summer with the launch of its first-ever café, located at 1750 H Street NW. Made of organic Greek ingredients, the 21-seat Piehouse offers a variety of savory and sweet Greek pies (or pastries), healthy salads, delicious sandwiches, a Greek yogurt bar, desserts and coffee, and even vegetarian and vegan/non-dairy options, ideal for any occasion or time of day, including breakfast, lunch, or for a snack.

Alfa Piehouse was born of a collaboration between Alfa, Greece’s leading pastry maker, and Argiro Barbarigou, Greece’s top celebrity chef, restaurateur, and award-winning cookbook author. Both pride themselves on the integrity and quality of traditional Greek cooking, and their desire to share this with the world.
