Our Philosophy

The morning sun appears in the Athenian sky and the little streets of Plaka are still cool. It’s 9 o’clock in the morning and Melina Mercouri café is ready to welcome the passers-by for their morning coffee and those who would like to enjoy their breakfast in this magical, ancient neighbourhood.

Mr Andreas and his son Stefanos have created a space in which one can taste delicious and modern cuisine throughout the day – and if someone’s appetite craves something more traditional, then the local “spoon sweets” are right there, both on our table and in our hearts. When the sun is setting, and night comes down, then Melina Mercouri café dims its lights and calls us in, so that we can enjoy the evening breeze and our drinks under the starlit Athenian sky.
