Our Story

Klara & Niko
From us to you

“ Hi food lover! Thank you for joining the table. You have good taste. My name is Niko, I am the co-founder of Omeio Artisanal Deli. My wife Klara and I founded the company in 2014, frustrated by not being able to find any online food stores providing a modern experience, we were tempted to create one ourselves."

First Launch
Got to start somewhere

We gathered our industry contacts and started collaborating with a few producers, most of whom are still present at the deli today. Fast forward to September 2014, Omeio was launched online based on the concept of a curated selection of fine foods.  

It took off within the first 3 months and very soon, in order to grow, our plan was to invest in a warehouse space in order to offer more of what we love.

However, we very soon realised that one of the values that we enjoy the most is the warmth of being hospitable. This is harder to accomplish in a virtual environment such as the internet, as opposed to a brick and mortar shop.

The Deli
Family and community

The scouting for a retail spot started and took over a year, but we finally found the one: 31 Macdonald Street, Paddington. Omeio's new home could not have been in a better place. Klara and I got back from our wedding in Greece and signed the lease the next day.

My parents flew in from Corfu, Greece to give us a hand. We did everything ourselves. Friends gathered as well to the task, and in just 4 weeks the doors were open - December 17th, 2016.

From only a handful of products, and very little foot traffic; we now provide a selection of over 500 items, serving over 200 people everyday.

More About Omeio

A modern traditional deli honouring the neighbourhood shop and inspired by the Mediterranean diet. This is not a cafe. 

A well-curated selection of fine foods, both local and international.

Since good taste. But more precisely we launched our first website in 2014 and opened our doors in December 2016.

The origin of the name comes from the ancient greek work “Omoios” [Ομειος] meaning similar but different.

31 Macdonald Street Paddington, Sydney NSW 2021 Australia

As a local deli we only deliver Sydney-wide within a 40km driving distance from our location in Paddington.

Traditionally, a deli is a retail store that sells a selection of fine artisanal foods.

Artisanal food encompasses breads, cheeses, fruit preserves, cured meats, beverages, oils, and vinegars that are made by hand using traditional methods by skilled craftworkers, known as food artisans.
