“Galates” Aegina has come to stay bringing traditional products of great taste and exceptional quality!
The first authentic deli to arrive on the island invites you to tickle your tastebuds with local gourmet delicacies, superfoods, and delicious dairy products, right from the monastery to your table.
Dairy products in Aegina
Did you know that Galates in Aegina bring their handmade dairy products directly from the Monastery of Makariotissa in Boeotia? The monastery has become a brand name thanks to its products of ultimate purity and top-notch quality products. The result? Fresh and pure dairy without preservatives and antibiotics, produced following a clean and certified process.
Εxclusively in Galates Aegina from all over Greece, you will have the chance to taste the monastery’s sheep yogurt. We also recommend indulging in traditional strained yogurt, homemade creams, aromatic rice pudding, and many more delicious dairy delicacies.

Also, at Galates you will find traditional pasta made in Aegina using the dairy products of the monastery, as well as delicious pistachio products from Aiakeion.
Before or after a day exploring the island, get the energy you deserve from the beneficial sugar-free Melichi pasteli (Greek-honey sesame bar) choosing the taste you prefer. Also, do try the home-made cookies!
And if you want to organize the perfect tapas night with friends, buy traditional local cheeses, such as aged Naxos gruyere and cheese with herbs and garlic, and accompany by biological wine from Ganis vineyards.
The variety of products is so large that Galates Aegina could even feed the village of the Galatians (remember Asterix & Obelix?)! However, for the sake of all true gourmet lovers, whether residents or visitors of Aegina, the shop of Galates is located in the center of the town of Aegina at 18 Afaias Street and remains open all year round. The unique aromas and products, but above all the kindness, warmth and genuine smile of the three young inspirers and owners of the store will amaze you.
