  1. The Underdog – Thiseio

It was love at first sight and it was enough to enter our list of the best brunch places in the center of Athens. An urban hangout in Thiseio, ideal for large and small groups. The minimal and careful decoration will take you to the beautiful cafes of New York! Especially for you who may be hungry, in Underdog you will find brunch to lick your fingers. Pancakes, eggs in various forms, sandwiches, and much more and delicious you will find on their menu.

  1. Beauty Killed the Beast - Keramikos

In one of the best brunch shops in the center of Athens, which combines colored corners, imaginative dishes, and products from every corner of Greece, we will agree on what brunch means. "Beauty killed the Beast" (and only for the name you would go) serves you a wonderful breakfast Friday to Sunday from 12:00 to 18:00. A menu that modernizes traditional dishes and ingredients such as Mytilene oil cheese, melichloro, apaki, talagani. Do you think that the beautiful woman finally killed the monster because you do not cook for her as wonderfully as the chef Gabriel Nikolaidis?

  1. Novak – Ampelokipoi

It is a treasure in the center of Athens in a gallery of the Tower of Athens. An industrial-style space that will give an extra-urban touch to your lifestyle. In one of the best brunch places in the center of Athens, brunch is served daily and not only on Sundays so it can become a favorite habit of all. Avocado toast with tomato, poached egg, and a mini salad, Croque Madame with ham, cheese, béchamel and egg sauté or bagel with scrambled eggs, Tartufo and prosciutto are just some of the dishes served at very affordable prices. The special corners of "Novak" will make you feel what its name means, something… "new"!


  1. Ellyz Athens – Monastiraki

A relatively new and flowery surprise in the heart of Athens that serves perhaps the best brunch you have ever tasted is Ellyz Athens. It is probably the most Instagrammable café in town as the eternal spring pink theme is dominant. Here, in addition to cakes, cupcakes and other sweets you will find to try the "pink flat white" coffee, which turns pink with a special treatment with milk dye and to accompany it with "Pink velvet cake ", with the multiple layers, which has nothing to envy from the wedding cakes, or the strawberry & choco cake, with strawberry and chocolate.

On one of the most central pedestrian streets of the city is Mama Roux, one of the best brunch shops in the center of Athens. Mama Roux is a large multicultural family, where chefs from different continents came together to amaze us with authentic Multi-Ethnic dishes. In their brunch menu, you will find wonderful tortillas accompanied by exotic sauces and fresh vegetables, omelets enriched with Mediterranean ingredients as well as of course the fresh salads and poached eggs. We urge you to enjoy all these delicacies accompanied by a natural juice or tea. The vegan and vegetarian options are adorable by both vegan-vegetarians and people who wanted to try them "as something different" and finally made their classic orders. Try Mama Roux "as something different" and maybe it will become your new brunch hangout.
