Why Yiayas? The name was given to me by my first Grand child. Ever since he started talking, his attempt to say Grandma came out Yiaya. He still calls me that today. Ironically, I didn't know until I started looking for a name for the eatery that Yia Yia in Greek means Grandma; after this discovery it was an easy decision.
Apparently, I'm not the only Yiaya. Ever since we opened this past May, there has been an overwhelming number of people who have stopped to take their picture next to our sign. I guess they are "Yiaya;'s" as well.
