Setting on the stairs is very charming, service is good, food ok. We asked for bread which was hard and dry and charged for 1 Euro. Compared to the good dishes at 5 Euro each that felt like a rip off.

Great selection, helpful staff and wonderful Greek food. A/c and no-smoking inside and lots of outside space cleverly located up the steps. The staff are all lovely and they don't rush you either to make your selections or move on when you are finished. Prices are very reasonable too. We had a lovely lunch and would go back if we...

One of the most popular destinations in downtown Athens (Plaka suburb-Anafiotika area) mainly due to the fact that scenes from a well-known greek movie were shot here. Lots of passers-by and really nice atmosphere. We have also tried the food once, which was great and beyond the expectations I had for such a touristic place. A must go, especially for... More

The café itself is very nice and warm decoration, with a fireplace used during winter. Very good coffee and nice sweets and food specials. The real value of the place is its location. It is worth walking in the area through the traditional streets, making your way to the café. Definitely recommended for light lunch or coffee and sweets.

Having tasted several cafes around the city, I have got to admit that the cappuccino freddo in this cafe is the best in the city! Coffee flavour is thick and strong even in ice. Had the chocolate cake with rum to complement the coffee, and it tasted awesome as well.
