Forty one years ago, in 1980, our parents decided to make a big change in their lives, leave
Athens behind and return to Tinos, their homeland. There, they created the “Noufara” pastry shop,
which started as a business partnership, but as the years passed by, it became a family-owned
business. The contribution of our father’s long working experience in some of the best
confectioneries in Athens (Serafeidis, Toulipa, Delis, King’s Palace Hotel, etc.) and our mother’s
discreet assistance has always been great. This shop has now been passed on to us, though our
parents are always present, supporting our endeavor.
During these 41 years, our simple pastry shop gradually has evolved. In our modern workshop
and in our pastry shop, situated on the busy Aghios Ioannis Porto provincial road, in the area of
Vagia, besides our pastries and ice-creams, you can also taste puffy pastry products, all
exclusively made in our lab.
You can enjoy traditional Tinian sweets, like almond marzipan sweets, “psarakia”, sweet cheese
pies or “tsimbites”, “xerotigana”, brittle, Greek delights or “loukoumia” and more. You will discover
a great variety of cakes, homemade ice-creams, syrup sweets and cookies, together with our
clients’ favorites, such as profiterole, chocolate cake, Valrhona chocolate cake and many more.
Also, we have a great selection of excellent choices for weddings, christenings, parties and every
other event type.
In our pastry shop, you will delight in the sense of hospitality, consistent quality and great service,
while savoring sweets made with pure ingredients, fresh recipes that reinvent traditional
confectionery and all-time classic flavors with a taste of home now fused with new ingredients and
We dare and prompt everyone visiting Tinos for the first time to leave any preconceived notions
they might have formed about it behind as soon as they disembark from the ship. Instead, they
should spend some time wandering around, exploring it, perceiving it through their own eyes, and
not based on what they have heard about it, as it is really worth it. And, of course, visitors should
never visit Tinos while on a diet.
But if they do, they should always allow
themselves some leeway to taste local traditional
savory or sweet delicacies, and believe us when we say that they are unique!
