Kimolia is the Greek word for “Chalk”. Kimolia is also my second home! Before I write anything else, you have to know that Kimolia is owned by my mother (Katerina) and her friend Renata!
Kimolia has been our second home from December 2011 till today! The hectic financial situation in Greece and our financial predicament, led us to look for a way to create opportunities for ourselves. We rented this traditional Greek house, built in 1925, decorated it with love and everything we had in our house (!), and we turned it into an art cafe! With my mother being a painter and all-around artist, the place became as it is now with her and her friends creating the chairs, painting the walls and donating their paintings for decoration!
We offer a specialty coffee from early morning, delicious salads, sandwiches and snacks all day long, Greek wine and beers at fair prices and drinks and cocktails until 02:00 in the morning. Homemade sweets made by mama Katerina are available daily! We support Greek producers and the Slow Food movement by principle!
Kimolia regularly organizes exhibitions for painters, photographers and jewelry makers. Kimolia plays jazz, swing and blues all day long, a bit louder at night and through this we try to create an ideal place for locals and tourists alike to relax to the sounds of good music and talk with friends and family!
Consider Kimolia your second “home” in the Athens city centre!
