We’ve just received copies of a delightful new book Greek cafes and milk bars of Australia by Effy Alexakis and Leonard Janiszewski which takes a Nostalgic look at the days when the Greek CafÃ© was the gathering place for every town and suburb. Effy Alexakiss evocative photos are paired with marvellous images from family albums. The cafes and the people behind them, showing dÃ©cor, milkshakes, sundaes and innovative sweets were combined in a unique and special Australian experience.
Of particular interest to Central West residents are the references to: Parris’s Milk BarÂ and GoldenÂ Golden Gate Cafe (Cowra),Â Â the Rose Marie and Silver Key Cafes (Orange),Â Â the Garden of Roses Cafe (Canowindra) and local identity , Michael Gryllis.
