We were staying nearby and found this recommended on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The couscous apple feta salad was to die for!!! Try the specials!!! Prices can't be beat. Wish we had one more day!!! We'd definitely go back.

“Food and hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

We stayed in Athens for around a week and ended up eating in this place four times. The chef definitely has a talent. This cafe has everything: excellent food, fresh ingredients and attentive waiters.

“Fresh ingredients and Great Value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Chat with the owner behind the bar and he will match your tastes to their menu. Very fresh ingredients are well prepared and excellent value. I especially like the fresh spearmint lemonade, and had two with my chicken and orzo.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We were only in Athens for the day so checked out trip advisor for goos cheap eats - we were not disappointed! Extremely fresh and fast and the staff were a lot of fun. The only critique i would make is that it is a little out of the way, we used my GPS to help find it. Great food, thanks!
