Why locals love it

It is hard to believe that there is a cafe in a garden so peaceful, just 5 min. walk from Syntagma sq. It is located in the Numismatic Museums' atrium (the famous Ilion Melathron), with a beautiful garden that is full of reproductions of ancient Greek statues. Τhe central point and the quietness make it an ideal spot for the lunch break of locals.

Why you should visit it

It could be hard to find a free seat during days of good weather; and that could be nearly every day in Athens! It often hosts jazz bands on Thursdays, so you might wanna check this out, especially if you're a couple. Don't miss the chance to visit the Numismatic Museum exhibitions, as the building itself.

Special tip

If you go there during daytime, ask for Christos to treat your coffee right! He is a Greek, kind and polite, always with a smile on his face.

Numismatic Museum attracts many visitors. However, there is a surprise hidden in the back yard of the Museum. A beautiful garden where one can drink some wine, soft drinks or cocktails. Some concerts are occasionally organised in this garden.
