Cherchez la Femme: When in Greece, you go to a French bistro. Okay, not really. Because they do serve Greek dishes at Cherchez la Femme, even though it looks really French inside. Pick a table outside and enjoy your frappé in the early morning, or have a seat inside in the green walhalla. I would certainly like that wallpaper back home!

Lotte: A small, cozy cafe in the Plaka district where it’s mostly locals that come here for their daily shot of caffeine. And for the cake, because those are delicious over here! We’ve especially fallen in love with the interior, as the entire cafe is filled with antique and vintage accessories. And that’s actually pretty typical for the hotspots in Athens!
