In the cobbled neighborhood of Ladadika, in a small cozy bistro, a beautiful family story is hidden. The shop was bought by K. Magiopoulos in 1912 and served as a coiffeur where, along with the shaving and the European styling, coffee and pastries prepared by him were served upstairs. Today the great-granddaughter, Lena, runs Lena’s Bistro, where the tradition continues, with good coffee, pastries and homemade delicacies.
During the summer the tables on Katouni Street, along with a coffee and the colourful neoclassical buildings, always improve my mood. In the afternoon I suggest a refreshing homemade sour cherry juice and in the evening a refreshing mojito. During winter, the space inside is smaller but I have very fond memories of this place. With rain outside, a warm discussion, jazz music playing and the very friendly staff of the bistro, I always feel cozy and welcome. That is what family businesses do, you are always treated like family there.
