Chemin (meaning small alley and tablecloth in French) is one of those places that you immediately fall in love with! It’s one of the places where you wish that if you owned a cafe or a bistro, it would look like this! Cute, pretty, cozy and colourful! What else can you look for in a bistro?
Yes, the cakes, the coffee and the delicious treats… They have them as well! There’s not one treat that I can recommend, simply because these guys are restless! Each time I go in, or just walk by, I see new treats waiting in the small vitrine, to be served to the lucky ones that come early enough!
One thing you should know, is that they don’t only have cakes and coffee but they also serve the nicest breakfast, featuring some amazing soups which are just what you need especially if you find yourself in Athens around winter time! Give them a try!
The family secret behind this place, is that it’s owned by two brothers-in-law, that are really connected! When I asked one of them if he owns the place, he replied by showing me the place behind the bar, saying “this half is mine, the other half is my brother-in-law’s!”.
Just next to it, you may also find one or two interesting places, both for a quick snack or a drink that get really lively late in the afternoon!
