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.

Fantastic vegan souvlaki, it was even my brother and sisters-in-laws favorite Athens lunch spot and they are not vegetarians! Owner so much fun to chat with.

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)

we tried the 'yellow' gyros pitas with mustard - oh my goodness they were delicious! loved the combination of the mushrooms with the sauces & the potato. Excellent value at less than 10 euros for 2 pitas & a side of potato wedges. great to...see vegan options like this in Athens.More

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
