The coffee culture of Plaka

A favourite local pastime, especially in Plaka, Αthens’ most colourful and historical area, “going for coffee” is something to do any time of day. It is just another opportunity to spend time outdoors soaking up the urban Athenian vibes, in between sauntering through Plaka’s picturesque alleys. Order a traditional Greek coffee, the classic ice frappe or the more hip version of a freddo espresso or cappuccino, coupled by your dessert of choice.
