NileGuide Expert tip:
2pm is the hour to go for the best selections of the day.
It's true, the title isn't friendly for a foreign tongue, but kymatothravstis
means "wave breaker." The tiny gun barrel of a cafe is jam-packed in the afternoon hours with hungry students who have lined up behind the counter and are squeezed into the colorful tables lining the shop. They've come to be fed well for almost no money; the constantly-changing menu of traditional Greek meals, pies, and salads are fit into a small plate for €3.50 and a large one for 6. Simple, isn't it?
The staff is warm and friendly as is the Christmas light-strewn cafe and the food is absolutely delicious. We think it's quite possibly the best reason to be on a budget.
