Great After Hours Stop

This hidden gem is close to attractions - Temple of Zeus, Plaka, Parthenon, etc. - but is quiet relaxing alternative. Great for a cocktail and chill. Nice music and decor. And the servers/bartenders were very nice. Check it out for yourself.

Not far from crowded Plaka and the Temple of Zeus, Kimolia provides a quiet respite from the heat. Great setting with low music allowing conversation, friendly staff and cute-cozy setting. Cooling fans and wifi make it hard to leave. Delicious coffees, not too sweet or weak.

Nice music, nice decor and good choice for coffee beans. The shop is stated in a special place without noise, but with a good view of people passing by.

A place that combines neoclassical elements and modern aura through a mix and match decor full of memories, art and craft. The staff is very friendly and cheerful. Try the home made delicacies of the day and seek the "secret" lounge on the back.

One of the nicest places in the area between syntagma square and plaka. Good greek coffee, divine chocolate cake and cheesecake... The shop is usually quite and considered as a meeting point of students and art lovers.. Highly recommended !

This is a nice little cafe in a small street (a bit difficult to find, even for locals!) I would love to go back at some point.

One of the sweetest cafes I've ever been, with lovely music and home environment. Very close to Syntagma square, you will find classic drinks and beverages but also home made sweets and Greek coffee! Enjoy!

My wife and I were in Athens, we were looking for a low key place to relax and enjoy being out in the evening. The Art Cafe hit the spot, it has a real Bohemian vibe, a locals place. The music was Delta blues, quiet conversations at the tables, good sandwiches and spiced wine. The baristas were friendly and chatty,... More

As kimolia means chalk in Greek I was very delighted to find boards and chalk in the place. The decor is marvelous. There are three separate rooms to sit which was very convenient for us who were 8 with children and wanted our privacy. There is variety in coffees and juice and the staff were quick. The children played with... More
