A very cosy place to enjoy the Valrhona chocolate in a dreamy thick liquid form ! A very large variety of different chocolate origins will make you feel like travelling around the globe to taste all the special categories of chocolate that Valrhona has gathered. Enjoy it hot or cold!

A really nice and homelike place! Beware on the chocolate you pick, you might regret it....or love it! Also price can be an issue!

This place has many specialty chocolates from around the world to make their delicious hot chocolate. The atmosphere is very cute and there aren't many tables. Would recommend trying once as it is pricey 5-6 euro for a hit chocolate!

We visited on one of our last nights in Greece. The charm of this place isn't just the great beverage options, but the fact that these people are like chocolate sommeliers. Reasonable prices and wonderful to experience!

Although its a very nice looking, cosy and beautifully decorated place, in a nice location, its so unjustifiably expensive for what it has to offer, that I would not return...

We went to Sokolata for coffee for the second time after being there in April. Pelagia, the owner, remembered us and greeted us in a most friendly way. We had strong filter coffee and a carrot cake(one of the best we've ever had) but we've tasted their great hot chocolate on our previous visit too. They have wonderful background music.... More

It has a wide range of chocolate drinks, each one better than the other. It is quite small but if you do find a seat it is worth it. It is a little expensive but I guess it's because of the quality of the chocolate. The service was satisfying.

For someone who likes hot chocolate is the best place I think in Athens. Very cozy place in the center of Athens.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
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 number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
