“Friendly, convenient and great for food and people-watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

I visited this cafe with my partner one lunchtime during a week-long visit to Athens. While it was more of a pit-stop - a glass of Alfa lager and a two-scoop ice cream - the friendly reception we received there was enough for us to go back the following day.

We were welcomed by the same waiter, who recognised us from our previous trip. Again this was a pit-stop, but on our third visit (for a full lunch), we were welcomed like family.

The menu is simple and, while it doesn't give the full range of gyros and kebabs, the food on offer is local, tasty and filling.

“Great breakfast in La Plaka, most delicious homemade yogurt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

We ate at Cafe Latifis a few times on our stay in Athens. The yogurt with fruit and honey is beyond delicious and was the best start to the day! I didn't love the gelato. Overall, a great place for breakfast or a snack!

“Vacation Itinerary MUST-DO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

Cafe Latifis is one of the places I miss the most from my vacation! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. It was nice to have a familiar place to visit after a long day of walking around and sight seeing in Athens. Vasillis was very kind and made us feel like we were at home, sincerely interested in our travels and to give advice and assistance when we needed it. I would go back in a heartbeat! Even though just a visit with the staff will be entirely worth your while, there is nothing more refreshing after a hot day out in the sun than enjoying some Gelato on their shaded patio. They have many different kinds to choose from, so prepare yourself!! Enjoy!

“Great food, great location & friendly waiters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

cafe Latifis is a wonderful restaurant. The location is wonderful, in the heart of the Plaka. The waiters were helpful, friendly and the food was fantastic. The view from the balcony was very nice.
I was in Athens for several weeks and ate at cafe Latifis almost daily!
I would recommend.
