NileGuide Expert tip:
Makes a great place for breakfast before a day of sightseeing. Try the ciabatta with egg and ham on one side, tomato and cheese on the other, and split it unless you're very hungry.
It's a simple concept: present traditional Greek "street food" and sweets with a touch of originality but don't charge extra for it. Keep the beverages reasonable. Play good music. Be friendly to the customers. So simple and yet so many places in Athens don't adhere to it! Makriyianni 3 does, and it's a pleasure taking a moment to enjoy a coffee there with a giant croissant, small brioche sandwich or pastry.
The little white cafe tables are not the sturdiest and the chairs, not the most comfortable, but for as long as you can tolerate them, it offers a pleasant place for people watching as it's just on the crossroads two major pedestrian streets.
