Petite Fleur, Central Athens
There are many branches of this coffee shop in different locations all over Athens.
However, what makes it unique from your everyday coffee shop is that it instantly has a cosy atmosphere and it also has live jazz nights.
The decor is very cute; since it has pastel colours that compliment each other, comfy armchairs, small round tables and an old fashioned vinyl player.
The coffee shop plays with the name; since it is indeed small. Although, their servings can be big.
They serve delicious hot chocolate with different flavours and types of chocolate; plus it can be ordered as a soup bowl size.
The menu also offers a selection of different teas; such as matcha tea or oolong tea. Make sure you order some of their baked goods; they do the most scrumptious dark chocolate tart.

Tuk Tuk Thai Street Food, Central Athens
Now this restaurant can get busy from the moment it opens and there’s a reason why; it has one of the most authentic and delicious Thai food in Athens.
Even after visiting the first time, you will soon become a local here. However, with limited seating and the fact that this restaurant is tiny; it is best to go with 1 or 2 people maximum.
When attending this restaurant, you have the chance to try a variety of traditional dishes such as Thai Green Curry, Thai style fishcakes and Pad Thai. Most dishes are spicy, but they do give a free Thai dessert as a treat.
