Lovely, lively place at the heart of Athens. Great for people watching. Food is real good too, thumbs up for the burger, but has other more unique options. Excellent waiters and atmosphere!

This place has been a favorite of Athenians for a while now, because it offers good quality food, quirky drinks and good food. It offered Sunday brunches and is a good place for people watching as it is located on a pedestrian street.
