About the Vatikiotis Family

My Deli & Cafe may be a new establishment and a new concept but its opening has been more than 35+ years in the making.  The Vatikiotis family (pictured right: George, Vana, Stelios and Tasos) has an inspiring history of experience within the restaurant business.  They have opened restaurants located in Greece as well as America.

In 1974, George & Vana Vatikiotis’ first venture was Prima Pizzeria in Falls Church, VA.  This is where they started perfecting combinations of ingredients to make delicious servings.  They later opened up a popular restaurant in Herndon, VA., which had 160+ seats and a few years after that they opened up an eatery in Athens, Greece.  Their location in Athens was in Monastiraki, near the popular street Ermou, across from the Acropolis.  They opened up their 4th establishment in Herndon again, about a decade later, upon their return.  After settling in the U.S. for many years, the Vatikiotis family found great interest in the growth of Loudoun County and really admired the growing town of Purcellville, which is the economic hub of Western Loudoun.  This is when the renovation of the “Old Theatre Centre” was initiated.  The family completely renovated the building and turned it into a modernized two story retail centre where My Deli & Cafe is now housed.
