This is a must-stop for a greek treat! Both savory and sweet options, but you can't go wrong with classic greek donuts (loukamades, aka fried dough balls!) smothered in honey and cinnamon, or any other of many topping options. Bring a friend and try multiple...More

Lukumades look just like left over middle bits of donuts. I didn't care much but my friend wanted to try. Wow! To die for. They fry the dough on spot. It's very fresh. The dough is kind of crunchy and not sweet. The sweetness comes...More

We found this place while wandering around Athens. It was a cute appealing dessert shop and we decided to try it. Best decision ever. Lukumades are Greek donuts. It doesn’t taste like regular donuts and each order takes about 10 mins since they make it...More

Plaka
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

Hi, I highly doubt it, I’m afraid. Not sure that Athens is generally geared for the diversity of dietary requirements!

Description
Why we are always ending up complicated things ? Having this in mind, we decided to create a simple yet modern space offering the all-time classic and beloved round and crisp lukumades with honey and cinnamon. The original lukumades which we all know since kids are being made in an open-kitchen, freshly-fried in front of your eyes and being served in the perfect warming temperature. Our recipe is old, simple, traditional and above all perfectly executed. In order to satisfy even the most demanding lukumades lovers, we started thinking of more mixing options so... We fiilled them with a unique "injection" procedure, we put ice cream on the side...and many other different and delicious toppings... We present them to you filled with chocolate praline, lemon and mastiha cream, with vanilla-honey ice cream & caramelized almonds, kazan dipi ice cream for more oriental memories or deeped in hot chocolate praline. Come over to taste our lukumades and discover your favorite combination !
