Here’s a crowded staircase of raki-serving coffee shops that goes upwards in an alley in Mother Theresa Boulevard. You have a variety of places to choose from, depending on your mood. You can have a seat at Taverna Tirona or Deck if you want a more spacious and energetic venue, you can choose Pijetore and Charlie Brown for a more isolated and restful experience or a little bit of both at Shoki or Baron. Each of these coffee shops has their part in creating the harmony that surrounds this street full of raki, so feel free to explore any of the other cafes that you find interesting, as there is one for any type of person. It’s not going to make much of a difference anyway when you’re seeing double on a Friday night.
The way I see it, there are 3 schedules here. You have the morning coffee, the afternoon beer and the evening shots, but shuffle them around just for fun by all means; nobody’s there to judge. There are a few fast food shops nearby as well, in case you’re about to drink on an empty stomach. I especially enjoy eating at the Noodle House at the top. It’s a street that screams youth and welcomes all the young AND the young at heart.
