Great morning coffee after an Acropolis visit - bookshop with a few English history books - speak English

Nice little cafe, very close to Acropolis. The service is good, but not excellent; the employees were not very friendly, and sometimes you could hear them chit-chatting which was a bit unprofessional. The coffee was nice, the muffin was divine!!! Very nice atmosphere, relatively quiet,...unless you go on a Sunday. Ideal for reading, studying and meeting people for group projects. Would recommend!More

I really love this place. The perfect spot to relax, have a coffee and enjoy the company of your book under the trees.

Well we have visited Athens quite a few times and we come to this cafe everyday when we visit, it’s the best, you don’t get rushed and can sit and enjoy your coffee, beer, tea or wine, juice etc. they also have a great little...food menu and can accomodate vegetarians, they have the BEST lemon tart I have tasted and it’s a standing order when we go there. They also give you little shortbread with your coffee/teas, or savoury nibbles with wine etc, which are free and a nice little surprise. There hot chocolate with almond milk is really good, and of course the espresso/cappuccino freddo can’t be faulted.More

Little tree is one of the really beautiful spots to have coffee when visiting or walking around the Acropolis. Easily accessible it's a bookshop/coffee shop with a vibrant yet peaceful atmosphere for those wanting to enjoy the company of their friends or their book but...also suitable for people wanting to study or answer emails on their laptops. Staff is very friendly, the space is beautiful but almost always full. If you visit make sure to try cake of the day as it's always delicious.More

Sweet little cafe in great surroundings. We had a fab frappe as we sat among the trees last August. Close to the Amazing state of the art museum that also keeps improving on every visit !

The place is tiny and very cozy. Coffee with almond milk was quite good and my friends really enjoyed the herbal tea. All that while looking at all kinds of books. Wow, such a good choice. There were some books in English as well not...only Greek.More

Extremely disappointing first encounter. I went here for coffee and the owner/manager did not want to serve me because she was offended that I had brought in food from another store. I was going to take the drink to go....If you are going to have...a store in a tourist location, expect that people will be shopping throughout the town and may want to try things from other places in your lovely city. Like dessert that goes with coffee. No worries though, I found another place that was more than willing to accept my business.More

We had a really good coffee, cake and sandwich on a hot day before we visited the acropolis. The shade was much needed and the service was really friendly.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
