I am not quite sure what to classify Pantopolio as? A deli would be too crude. I think I will settle with a “food emporium” crammed full of Greek delights, cheese, wine, seafood, meats just to name a few. There are literally hundreds of high-quality food items here. I discovered this wonderful shop 4 years ago and revisited it again uin Sptember in the mood to eat on our hotel balcony. So for octopus, stuffed grape vine leaves and pickled artichokes with a bottle of Moschofilero wine it was all consumed happily watching the sun set over the Gulf of Thessaloniki. Great selection of foods but a gaping hole when it comes to bread!
