The Tale

Dionysia Lianou, a girl from Athens, Greece, traveled halfway around the world to study photography at Central Piedmont Community College. Dionysia married Gus Stamoulis, and they traveled back to Greece for quite some time. In 2010, they moved back to Charlotte and opened Nefeli Caffe, a small Greek eatery on pedestrian-only Brevard Court next to Romare Bearden Park. In 2015 Dionysia’s mom Chaido Lianou, a lover of cooking and expert at cooking authentic Greek food, especially Greek desserts.  In 2015, Chaido came to the U.S. to live and the family opened Mocco Bistro where she cooks all of the bistro’s pastries.

Two chilled cases display Chaido’s culinary masterpieces. Mocco’s pastries include familiar Greek favorites such as Baklava, Kourabiedes (butter cookies dusted in powdered sugar) and Melomakarona (honey cookies rolled in walnuts). Pair Melomakarona with a cup of coffee next time you go!

There is also the delicious Sokolatina: little cakes with a layer of mousse, robed in shiny chocolate, garnished with fresh strawberries. This rich little cake topped with fruit is the perfect dessert to eat after a meal!
