Probably the Best Vegan quick bytes restaurant on Planet Earth, but definitely the best in Attica Greece. Exceptional hospitality, great food and the best neighborhood of Athens. Forget the Acropolis and visit this place if you want to experience Greece. (please be aware of copycats:)...There's only one COOKooMÉLA!More

Unloved the food there. I went now several times and tried different staff. All what I had was amazing. Very nice taste and texture.

We stayed a few minutes away from here on our honeymoon and it quickly became our go-to for a fantastic meal. Multiple varieties of incredible vegan gyros (the red was my personal favourite), and a rainbow salad that has to be tasted to be believed....Chuck in wonderfully friendly owner and a great atmosphere and you really can't go wrong. We also really enjoyed watching the guys at the bar next door playing table tennis.More

We wanted to get away from the tourist area so we went three stops on the metro north My colleagues had the vegan gyro wraps. The chef's special (Rainbow) was superb. The white classic wasn't as good because of the volume of potatoes. I had...the tomato salad which was superb. It had a crunchy patty at the bottom that I wasn't expecting, so I might choose something else next time. I didn't care much for the beer (they have only one). They believe in sustainability. No plastic straws, plates, or cutlery. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants a low cost healthy meal.More

All vegan small takeaway offering various versions of mushroom souvlaki or lentil kebabs. Very cheap at around 2.70eur per pita. Tastes really fantastic with the sauces and melt in your mouth potatoes. Obviously not the healthiest but great to have once in a while!

I'm not a vegan so I'm not sure of how the food in vegan shops tastes like, BUT I know that this specific souvlaki tastes wonderful. The owners and the emploees are awsome people. Always polite and smiley. Thank you

The food was tasty because of too much sauce especially mayo. The owner was yelling at his employees, giving rude orders. Awful atmosphere.

This mushrooms’ based gyros was delicious. Quality > price (2,70€ for 1). Friendly staff and eco/bio friendly as well. Highly recommended! (Picture is Green and Yellow gyros from the menu)

Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as
