Good start to our stay in Athens, nice large cup of coffee - needed after an 11 hour flight! Then a tasty egg and bacon roll plus a filling cheese omelette. Friendly service and a good location near the Acropolis museum.

climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
