When the original owners of Euro Bakery & Greek Restaurant Cafe closed the restaurant July 31, 2018, loyal patrons and spouses Adnan and Farah Qureshi bought and reopened their favorite eatery two weeks later.

“This place has been here for 10 years, and I used to come here all the time with my friends, so we personally knew this place before we bought it,” Farah said. “There aren’t really any other Greek restaurants around here.”

As the business originally began as just a bakery, the couple said they have stayed true to its roots by offering a variety of custom cakes; tarts; pies; European pastries and cookies; and Greek desserts, such as baklava.

“We do everything from scratch,” Adnan said. “It’s really unique that we have the bakery and the restaurant together.”

The Qureshis said after the bakery had been open for some time, the original owners decided to add the restaurant component, featuring Greek staples such as gyros, chicken souvlaki pitas and falafels, in addition to soups, salads and Greek takes on items such as burgers and pizzas.

“Gyros have become pretty universal, but I think a lot of people get intimidated if they don’t know how to say [the name of a dish], so that’s why we put photos of them and the English name [on the menu]—so they aren’t afraid to order it,” Adnan said.

Farah, who serves as both the eatery’s chef and baker, said although the new owners have kept much of the menu the same, they have added some more vegan options to the original menu and tweaked some of the original recipes.

“I’ve always been cooking, but I was a stay-at-home mom, so I cooked for my kids,” Farah said. “We put a lot of spices in Pakistani food, so I can taste if something is missing from a recipe, so we’ve added more flavor to the souvlakis and the soups. I put a lot of love into all my recipes.”

In the future, the duo said they plan to add more items to the menu and may eventually move to a new location north to The Woodlands or west toward The Vintage.
