The “sibling” of School is located right next to it in one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city center. Zaf loves

the casual attitude and the carefully designed services for its guests. We choose it from early in the morning for fine coffee until late in the evening for drinks and cocktails from its updated cellar and its signature cocktail list. From its cocktail list don’t miss the Summer breeze with Martini dry, Bombay gin, juices from citrus fruits, ginger ale and mint, as well as its newest addition, the daily brunch which we really loved! The new concept suggests 11 delicious culinary options –curated by the Food Gang team– with extraordinary options such as “kagiana” (the Greek version of strubble eggs) and fisherman (omelet with Mediterranean spices and smoked salmon). On the other hand, equally delicious are also the pancakes with chocolate, nuts and caramel syrup as well as the savory ones (in particular the flavors of cheese cream, parmesan, rocket salad, tomato, pork pieces and egg). Definitely must taste are the savory waffle with chicken, bacon, mushrooms, red pepper, tomato in sweet chilli sauce. The menu has also been enriched with 4 new age open New York sandwiches (2 cold and 2 warm)! From the cold options try The anquus project with beef fillet, parmesan flakes, rocket salad and truffle oil and from the warm The chicken junkie with chicken, peppers of various colors, tomato, cream cheese and sweet & chilli sauce. All these in an amazing 3-level space with outdoor tables, carefully selected music and friendly atmosphere! Daily 09:00-03:00 (brunch 10:30-13:30).

Must drink

The authentic version of the famous Negroni. Hard to find elsewhere!

It might have been initially introduced to us as Passagio in 2010, but, Caffeine & Wine made this year a dynamic come back with a new name, attesting to its new philosophy. Caffeine because it welcomes us in the morning with aromatic coffee and special hot drinks in its friendly patio with a view of the vibrant Kanari Square and Akti Moutsopoulou. Αnd Wine because, especially in the evening, its internal hall, dressed in stone, wood, atmospheric lighting and modern decoration, is transformed into a wine bar offering at least 60 labels of Greek wines (all by the glass) accompanied by cold cut and cheese platters. Plus, live concerts with famous singers (one Saturday per month) gathering patrons from every district of Athens! Now that summer is coming the scenery of the wine bar is transferred at the outdoor revamped space amongst the flower scents. Daily from 09:00.

Made its first appearance in 1985 in Zea Marina and was transferred to the heart of Piraeus in 2010 where it developed into a popular all-day meeting point. Walking on the vibrant walkway of Karaiskou street, the Le Pierrot will catch your attention from afar. Looking like a beautiful bistro in Montmartre puts you in a romantic micro world, ideal for casual meetings during the day in its cozy corners or outdoor patio. The delicate morning beverages and the aromatic coffees are very popular, while at noon it serves irresistible crepes in sweet or savory version and Mediterranean suggestions such as pasta, risotto, burgers and cold salads. During the evenings, the dim lighting and the jazz music compose an idyllic atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the people’s stroll. Daily 08:00-02:00.

At the vibrant center of the commercial piazza of Piraeus, “piercing” coffee aromas direct us towards the cozy and design café Crazy Goat! Less than a year since its launch, has already managed to captivate the lovers of the kind thanks to its innovative philosophy which finds its origin on the “Third-wave coffee movement” – respecting both the coffee beans as well as all the people who are involved in their processing. The youthful barista team, wearing their modern aprons, masterfully apply their art on a unique blend with a sour pleasant aftertaste. Apart from espresso, another strong asset is its specialization in the latte art producing an irresistible cappuccino with rich homogenized cream, while at the same time the cold brew (a cold filter coffee) has its own set of fans. Mon.-Fri. 07:00-21:00, Sat. 07:00-18:00, Sun. Closed.


Its fine delicacies such as the club sandwich with cold cuts and the sweet pancakes.
