Our Story

One Big Dream

Inspired by my own dyslexia journey, I'm teaming up with my mom and wife to bring our family's Baklava magic to the world. Every bite fuels our dream of supporting dyslexic children, with a percentage of sales going towards organizations empowering them to reach their full potential.

Who Is Yia Yia?

My mother, Christine, has a passion for baking that began in her childhood at just 5 years old. She learned recipes passed down from generations in our family, with a legacy of over 125 years. Baklava has been a staple dessert for all special moments, from family gatherings to weddings, and it’s always been a centerpiece of our family celebrations. After I was diagnosed with severe dyslexia at a young age my mother took it upon herself to find a way to pay for the very expensive ,and much needed, tutoring I needed. She began selling Greek delicacies, Baklava was her staple.

Our Baklava Moments

Delicious. I ordered the organic lemon, organic hazelnut, and organic original. All were fresh and very tasty. I had to stop myself from eating all of them when they arrived. Highly recommend!
Elaine Piligian
By far the best baklava I’ve ever tasted! This baklava is always fresh and the quality is consistently excellent. The delicate layers of fillo are crisp and perfectly sweet, and together with the filling, this is a must-try pastry. You can’t eat just one!
Andrea Cosmas
Hands down the BEST!! Great for all occasions.

One of the best! I will go here whenever I'm in town. At times finding a reason to head there just so I can hit up Yia Yia's.

I LOVE Yia Yia’s Baklava! They are so delicious in every flavor. Perfectly sweet and flaky. You can tell a lot of love went into making these. They are my go-to to have on hand when entertaining or gifting to friends and family.
