The Underdog Athens

The Underdog – The place to be!

Located in the touristic center, I’m sure you could walk by the door of The Underdog and not see it, as the entrance is narrow and usually one of the doors is half-closed.

Once inside, you will realise why I’m telling all my friends that it’s one of the city’s most impressive places: big and yet cozy, with a terrace that can be used in winter and with high ceilings that give a fantastic natural light during the whole day.

Talking about the atmosphere there, allow me to mention the music selection, as they take good care of it. Every single time I go to The Underdog I discover a new song or band. Last time I was there I discovered Erlend Øye.

I still can’t decide if I have to refer to it as a bar, a restaurant or as a coffee roastery. I wonder if there is a word in English that can mix all those concepts in one.

As you can guess, since The Underdog is a mini-roastery, the coffee they serve tastes like real coffee. They also serve beers (they have a list of 30 hand-crafted beers) and cocktails all day long. About the food, they start serving brunch every single day from 10:00: a nice selection of eggs, toasts, pancakes and salads.

I really enjoy being there (for a coffee or brunch) and I know you will also feel good when you visit.
