Story

Les Grecs n’ont pas seulement inventé la philosophie, ils ont également inventé le Phyllo bar Mélina… situé au cœur palpitant du quartier Mile-End à Montréal !
Le Phyllo-bar Melina : moins haut que la Tour Eiffel, mais beaucoup plus grand pour les plaisirs de la bouche ! Dans ce lieu qui n’est pas un gratte-ciel, les fins mets de pâte phyllo (spanakopita, tyropita, prassopita et bougatsa) vous projetteront au septième ciel.

Il s’agit d’un endroit tout simple, techniquement un « casse-croûte », avec tout juste un comptoir, quelques chaises et quelques tables volantes. Mais contrairement à une multitude d’autres endroits de la même appellation, qui ne cassent rien sauf le portefeuille, le Phyllo-bar Melina casse les limites du bonheur tout simple qu’on peut trouver sous le palais. Vous vous y retrouverez donc sur le mont Olympe des délices grecs. Le casse-croute a été nommé en l’honneur de Mélina Mercouri et ainsi, fait un clin d’œil aux années 1950 et 70 durant lesquelles la Grèce a repris son essor en cinéma, musique et littérature.

C’est aussi à cette époque que, imitant Ulysse en grand nombre, des Grecs sont venus s’installer dans des endroits comme Montréal et Toronto (où, parait-il, ils auraient entendu des chants de sirènes). Ils y ont apporté, outre leur culture et leur soif de vivre… la pâte phyllo ! À Montréal, les Grecs se sont concentrés autour de l’avenue du Parc et ont fait de celle ci une petite Grèce. Le Phyllo bar Mélina se trouve tout juste à côté du cinéma Rialto, où on pouvait alors visionner des films grecs et, notamment, de Mélina Mercouri.

Mélina Mercouri est née en Grèce. Actrice, philanthrope et première femme députée au parlement grec, elle a aussi été ministre grecque de la culture. Sous la dictature des colonels, Mélina, que l’on a alors outrageusement dépossédée de sa citoyenneté, est devenue une activiste vivant à l’étranger. Elle a aussi réclamé le retour des marbres du Parthénon qui avaient été sans droit ravis au pays au dix-neuvième siècle.

Phyllo Bar Melina's is a cozy snack counter, specializing in authentic Greek Phyllo pies (Spanakopita, Tyropita, Prassopita & Bougatsa). We can satisfy your savoury and sweet tooth with our wonderful selection and provide you with a dose of great caffeine!

Our idea was to have a small and welcoming space that emphasized great design and impeccable service. We wanted to pay homage to Greece's modern golden era between the 1950's and 1970's, a period when the nation was making great strides in film, music and literature.

During this period, many Greek people left their motherland and settled in places like Montreal and Toronto, bringing with them their culture and zest for life. In Montreal, they flocked towards Parc Avenue and quickly made it into a Little Greece. The street was bustling with tavernas, bouzouki bars and a beautiful theatre, the Rialto, which played films from their beloved homeland. Films from such icons as Melina Mercouri.

Melina Mercouri was an international icon born in Greece. She was an actress, philanthropist and the first female member of the Hellenic Parliament and later, Minister of Culture of Greece. During the military junta, Melina was stripped of her citizenship and became a political activist living in exile. She was also a vocal advocate for the return of the Parthenon Marbles, which were unrightfully removed from the country in the 19th century.
