Description: Kimolia is a cozy, colourful and artistic spot in the centre of Athens. Open from December 2011, it hosts various performances and exhibitions all year long. Jazz & Blues tunes with the occasional rock hits, cheap drinks and special cocktails along with a small variety of cold dishes and salads, this place is a must for all-day long! Don't miss the chance to check out the cute room in the back along with all the paintings that are crafted by the owners, Mrs Catherine Vayena and Renata Proestopoulou!

It is indeed a nice cafe with art flavor. The trouble is it is not well ventilated and people really smoke a lot inside. No signs warn you about it. Hence, if you are a smoker, this is a place to be. If not, and especially if you are with children, you would better stay away.

Thank you for taking this time to review Kimolia for us! It's a pleasure to see both sides, good and less good ones, especially the latter, as an opportunity for improvement. We would therefore like to take this chance to point out that we respectfully disagree with the topic of your critique. We have had lots of families in Kimolia,... More

Very nice café located at the centre of Athens (near Syntagma square). The decoration and atmosphere are very appealing. Tips: The table at the back is very cosy and isolated from the rest of the shop. Ideal if you want some privacy. Try one of the teas they offer-their names and taste are amazing!

Simply the best hot chocolate in Athens! Try it with caramel or strawberry! Μόνο 2€ το πρωί για φοιτητές και ανέργους :)

A welcome break on a walking tour of Athens in the hot, early autumn sun before climbing the Acropolis to the Parthenon. Nestling in the back streets just between the Acropolis and Syntagma Square, Kimolia is the very essence of cafe society serving at a casual pace excellent, refreshing beers, wines and soft drinks with snack food to appeal to...

First time I visited Kimolia I found the place fantastic but my moments were spoiled from the really loud music coming later. I don't believe it suits the place for such music volume. I gave the place a second chance and it surprised me. Not only they didn't pump up gue volume so much this time but the place had... More

I often work from Kimolia. Great classical decor, real Greek coffee (as opposed to machine-made), friendly staff and a funny little dog who keeps to herself. Go here for your central Athens coffee experience.

very nice place to relax on your sundays with cousy atmosphere, in the narrow streets of plaka. Friendly stuff, nice music (jazz and blues most of the time) it really worths your time

I had a very delicious a home style cheese cake with excellent coffee. Difficult to find such lovely place to eat or have a coffee in really comfortable sitting in this very busy area, bravo to the owner! But the service is too slow. Which might not be a big deal with free internet access.

Ended each night here and had a great time. As there was six in our party the owner gave us a room to ourselves. The last night was there halloween and we were invited to stay for the party - and as a thanks for our custom we had a free round of drinks! Very hospitable and a great find.
