Veloni's Fournos, Naxos

Oven or bakery. In many villages, it's not only the place to buy bread and paximadi, but it's where people can bring their moussaka and other oven dishes to bake for a small fee. Some are called αρτοπωλείο (artopoleio) or αρτοποείο after the ancient Greek word for bread, artos.
