Traditional Greek Breakfast

There’s‍ no unified, single traditional⁣ Greek breakfast that is common​ throughout Greece. However, a⁢ classic and frequently consumed breakfast consists of Greek coffee, fresh bread, and a variety of​ accompaniments ⁢such as honey,​ butter, ‌and Greek yoghurt. Here, we are revealing the recipe‍ of a typical Greek Breakfast with⁣ bread, honey, butter and yoghurt ⁢alongside ‌Tyropita,‍ a traditionally baked Greek cheese pie.


  • Greek coffee
  • Fresh Bread
  • Butter – 30 grams
  • Honey ⁣- 2 tablespoons
  • Greek Yoghurt – 1 cup
  • For‍ Tyropita:
    • Feta cheese – 250 grams
    • Phyllo ⁤dough sheets -‍ 4 to 5
    • Eggs – 3
    • Milk – 1 cup
    • Salt – a pinch
    • Unsalted butter (melted) – ⁤60 grams


Bread, Honey,​ Butter and Greek Yoghurt

Lightly toast the fresh bread and spread‍ a generous quantity of butter on top.​ Drizzle honey over the ‍buttered bread. Serve with a side of Greek yoghurt that you‍ can ⁣enjoy plain, or topped with⁢ a ⁢spoonful of honey for added⁤ sweetness.


  1. In a bowl, crumble the feta cheese and mix in the eggs, milk, and a pinch‌ of salt.
  2. Grease a⁣ baking ‌tray with some of the melted butter.
  3. Layer the phyllo sheets at the bottom of the⁣ tray,⁤ brushing each with melted butter⁣ before adding the next.
  4. Spread the cheese mixture ​over​ the⁣ layered phyllo, then layer the remaining phyllo on top, again brushing butter between layers.
  5. Bake‌ in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Cooking the Greek Coffee

Brew the Greek coffee in a briki, pouring in‌ water, adding coffee and sugar. Boil till⁢ the frothy foam known as ‘kaimaki’ comes onto ​the⁣ top.‌ Serve hot alongside your bread⁢ and Tyropita.
