Lovely atmosphere, very traditional Greek. Good service, polite and helpful staff. Good range of food, well priced for the area you are in. Sat outside under trees, the occasional leaf dropping for authenticity!

Had a great coffee, toast and marmalade here before we visited the Parthenon. Great comfy couch seats out the front with a good view of what's going on in the area. Friendly and efficient service. And good value!

and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
