Instead of getting off the metro at busy monastriki, we waited one more stop and saw this cafe nestled beside the park and off the main road. It had lots of seating, cool air and the staff were friendly. They had lots of breakfast options...More

Partner and I had a great time with Katerina. Well organized class. You help to prepare seven classic greek dishes, while you talk, drink a little and eat a bit as you go. It’s well balanced - easy enough for non chefs to follow, but...More
