NileGuide Expert tip:
A happening place to spend a Sunday morning. Go before ten to snag a good chair.
Imagine sitting in a lounge chair under a canopy of pine trees, sipping your champagne cocktail next to running water while watching the beautiful people, at least all of the beautiful people besides yourself. That's the sort of atmosphere you'll find at Piu Verde in Alsos Papagou, an elite northern suburb of Athens. The cafe offers Mediterranean fare prepared by chef Christos Tzieras as well as the usual subjects like club sandwiches and mini burgers. Wine tasting soirees as well as regularly scheduled live music are among the regularly programmed events that one might chance upon any given evening.
Piu Verde is a fifteen minute walk from the Ethniki Amina metro station. Should you choose to take a taxi, say 'Alsos PapA'gou, the name of the park, and "estiatO'rio" which means restaurant. As its the only restaurant in the park, they should know what you mean.
