Best place to swing by for breakfast if you're out and about before 8am.

As far as originality goes, Regal Cafe has not done much to make herself rise above the superfluous numbers of cafe-bars in Athens. It is the standard high design tables, chairs and lighting, ultra-chic bathroom and discotech soundtrack that you'll find anywhere. What she has done is make herself very practical to out-of-towners by opening early, providing free wifi, having friendly, multilingual staff, breakfast specials in a non-breakfast eating city, etc. The outdoor seating is clean and comfortable, serving as a great base for people watching the pedestrianized street of Makrigianni.
Prices are average with the standard cafes; not great but not gorging you, either. Very close to the Acropolis Metro and the New Acropolis Museum.
