After so much time, we can finally meet with friends again and do one of our favorite pastimes – real communication and discussion of news at tables in street cafes, we missed this so much during the pandemic.
Iced coffee, delicious dessert or our favorite drink, juice or cocktail have never been as delicious and delectable as they are now after the quarantine was lifted!
Black Duck Garden
The Black Duck Garden at the Municipal Museum of Athens, located in Klaftmonos Square, has opened its doors to the public and welcomes its ardent admirers in a flowered courtyard so that you can enjoy your first coffee after a long break.
Just a few steps from Panepistimio metro station, this is the ideal place to have a great time in the center of Athens, while still feeling that you are away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.
Where King Othon married 18-year-old Amalia and enjoyed talking to her in the garden of the mansion, you will spend pleasant moments in a relaxing environment, and in the very center of the city!
Blue Parrot (Μπλε Παπαγάλος)
Vintage design, unique antique furniture, matching enchanting music make you feel like you are in a holiday home or at a friend’s house, in a welcoming environment.
The Blue Parrot cafeteria is located in Metaxourgio (Leonidou 31), and each visit is a “little escape from everyday life”. Several good and tasty dishes, delicacies and sweets, and exotic cocktails are served here. In fine weather, tables are placed right on the sidewalk.
Mr. Hu (Κύριος Χου)
In a neoclassical building from 1933, located in the Ano Petralona district (Δημοφώντος & Υπερίωνος 1), Mr. Hu welcomes you. In perfect harmony with the picturesque area of Ano Petralona, the catering establishment has preserved some of the elements of the old house – vintage tiles and a magnificent patio.
The cafe is a cozy meeting place for young people, an ideal choice for meetings at any time of the day. His undeniable trump card is an artistically puppet and neat courtyard.
