NileGuide Expert Says:
The best break from a traditional Greek "tiropita" or cheese pie as a mid morning snack must be the buttery, delicately sweet raisin bread of Eric Kayser. Get your own. You won't want to share.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Pound off whatever damage is done via pastry consumption by hitting the shops of Solonos Street, or better, climbing Lycavittou Hill.
A little French pastry shop and bakery in Greece combines two very, very good things. The house of Eric Kayser, already famous in France, is now franchised in other select capitols, Athens included. Athens isn't complaining. Residents and visitors near the select shops in upscale neighborhoods are delighting in the French quality butter croissants, baguettes, petits fours, in-season tarts, fresh salads and sandwiches and decadent cakes.
