Location and contact

Kimolia is a cozy, colourful and artistic spot in the centre of Athens. Open from December 2011. Jazz & Blues tunes with the occasional rock hits, drinks and special cocktails along with a small variety of cold dishes and salads, this place is a must for all-day long! Don't miss the chance to check out the cute room in the back along with all the paintings that are crafted by the owner, Mrs Catherine Vayena!

Chilled out place with nice decor and music. Comfortable to spend an hour. Coffee is good but more expensive than other places nearby.

Kimolia Art Cafe is located in the beginning of Plaka area and just next to our apartment we stayed. Coffee and tea were good.

Medium coffee, medium service. They smoke inside thus it smells terribly. It is very easy to gather some old furniture and serve medium coffee, so being there I can't understand the fuzz.

Adorable cafe with a GREAT menu and wonderful cocktails. It’s tucked away inside of an alleyway, but pretty easy to find. Fun atmosphere with quirky colors and decor. Staff was very friendly as well—and a visit or two from local cats!

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
