We love to visit local eateries while traveling. At Kekkos we splurged for lunch and were absolutely pleased. We also heard a bit of history from the proprietor sharing family involvement in Kekkos over generations: food for mind and body.
We simply loved the cafe. As three traveling ladies looking for something cozy, convenient to our hotel and the city center, and with long opening hours to suit our early mornings and late evenings, this was definitely the place. The pastries were fresh and delicious,...More
The coffee is great and comes with complimentary biscuits. I don't know whether these were home made but they tasted great and were more of a personal touch than the usual pre-wrapped offerings. We had the fruit salad with muesli and yoghurt for breakfast here...More
Kekkos was by far the best cafe I had been to during my month-long adventure through Greece! Their coffee was brewed to perfection and the pastries were delicious. There wasn't a day in Athens that I didn't end up in Kekkos. Most importantly, the staff...More
We had breakfast one morning and really enjoyed it. The service was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend the cheese pie and orange juice as well as the coffee. We also ordered an omelette but it was so big we couldn't...More
I never take the time to write reviews, but our experience here was amazing! It was our first night in Athens, and my sister and I wanted to get a quick bite to eat. We wandered down the street to this wonderful cafe, and we...More
Oh my goodness, what a great find in Athens. Just around the corner from the Old Olympic Stadium, so if you are visiting that area and want to pop in for coffee, breakfast or lunch, there is no better place. Full disclosure...my daughter spent a...More
Great cafe, wonderful service and very friendly. We had feta and cheese pies, they were awesome. The coffee and fresh juice is great too. Very good prices.
I wish we'd had the opportunity to visit again.
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First
National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
