Part cafe, part multi-functional space, part meeting place for design and art lovers, Philos Athens is an awesome place to brunch. The cafe is a local favorite because of its charming and cozy interior, both beautiful and a work of design. Philos Athens serves up one of the best cups of coffee in town, and is noted for its delicious caffeine creations. Just browsing at the menu you’ll soon understand why this place is one of the best places for brunch in Athens. Some of the most popular plates are the avocado toast, eggs Benedict, and red velvet pancakes. Plus, it’s located quite close to many of our apartments in Kolonaki!

Address: Solonos, 32

Harvest Coffee & Wine

The name describes some of the things that Harvest does best: tasty coffee, delicious wine, and great food. Brunch starts at 9 AM and continues well through the day until 19:30. Whether you prefer to charge up with a coffee or mellow out with a glass of wine, Harvest has you covered. This restaurant has a Spanish influence, and the menu reflects some great dishes from Spain. You can’t go wrong with the tapas selection, pancakes, or poached eggs!

Address: Evripidou

New York Sandwiches

Craving a mouth-watering New York-style breakfast? Hop on over to New York Sandwiches for fluffy pancakes, a variety of bagels and cream cheeses, egg creations, and of course, sandwiches. The breakfast dishes are divine, but New York Sandwiches really shines when it comes to sandwiches, burgers and fries. The only thing you won’t like about this restaurant is that you can’t sample one of everything on the menu in one visit!

Address: Nikis, 23

Peek A Bloom

Rounding out our quick guide to the best brunch in Athens is Peek A Bloom, known for their outstanding coffee and pancakes. This quaint cafe is tucked in a beautiful, little alley in Athens, so it truly is a hidden gem in the Greek capital. This place is even better in the warmer months when you can sit on the outdoor terrace and soak in the sunshine with your tasty brunch!

Address: Lekka, 14
