My son wanted to visit for the recent George Condo exhibition. It was a hot day, so we started the visit at the cafe. A beautiful, spacious extension to the classical building, which complements the Cycladic Art theme perfectly. Food & coffees all very good,...More

dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
