This is one of the coffee-houses that I just love to sit around for hours. It is in the center of Athens but still, no crowds and no cars. Only the train which passes right in front of the pedestrian street where it is located but even this has a lovely touch to it.

Even in winter the chairs outside of this tiny, tiny place are full of people. Switch to ‘raki' to keep yourself warm! Not a bad idea if you ask me, and order a hummus plate to go with it!

On Sunday mornings you can combine your morning coffee with a nice walk on the second-hand flea market just on the opposite side of the train and if it should get late Technopolis, which is just another 200 meters away, will definitely have some entertainment to offer you.
