NileGuide Expert Says:
The rooftop seating has incredible proximity from the Acropolis and is blissfully free of pan-handling accordion players.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The plates are small so you'll likely order quite a few to share amongst the table. Expect to pay about 25-30 euros a person including wine or beer.
This small cafe in a ramshackle building sports a nicely restored interior featuring lots of gleaming dark wood and polished copper. It faces lopsided Abyssinia Square off Ifaistou, where furniture restorers ply their trade and antiques shops sell everything from gramophones to hubcaps. You can sit indoors or out with a coffee, but it's tempting to snack on Cheese Abyssinia (feta scrambled with spices and garlic), mussels and rice pilaf, or keftedes (meatballs). Everything is reasonably priced here, but it's easy to run up quite a tab, because everything is so good.
