If you’ve made it from Manhattan to Bay Ridge, congratulations, you deserve something sweet and ooey gooey from Omonia Café’s epic dessert display case. A product of Bay Ridge’s omnipresent Greek culture, Omonia not only churns out traditional Greek desserts, like flaky Baklava and Galactoboureko, but also whips up be-all and end-all cake concoctions, like cheesecake baklava and semolina-almond sponge cake. If you’re feeling ambitious, precede your dessert with one of Omonia’s more savory options, like Shrimp on the Barbie or a spinach pie. The café is constantly teeming with confection-hunting warriors, so be prepared to wait. But fear not, with hours extending well into the early morning (3am on weeknights and 4am on weekends), you won’t be shut out.
