Satisfy this desire was not so simple before 2013 but since then, the “brunch” has taken its place and is now increasingly in vogue in Athens.
Whether you live in Athens, or you will be visiting, an overview of the best places “brunch” is a must !
Here are some places that I gladly share with you :
- It Restaurant
- Mama Roux
- New Hotel
- Nixon Bar
- Hip Coffee
Located in Kolonaki, I already told you in a previous post http://wp.me/p3UZFM-3s
It is true that I particularly love this place!
Brunch is held on Sundays at noon, except in summer, because all Athenians are at the beach 🙂
Originality : live jazz music during brunch.
Specialties : A special “brunch” menu is planned, where you will find poached eggs with spinach and lentils, rocket omelettes/feta and mushrooms/tomato/brie, scrambled eggs with tomatoes or smoked salmon, croque- madame, cheese-pie, pizza pear/gorgonzola salad and burger. All products are organic.
Price : around 20 euros, but of course it depends on what you choose on the menu.

This dinner is known for its cuisine of multiple influences (Mediterranean, Mexican, Asian) orchestrated by the sympathetic Sandra (who also speaks French), but you should know that Mama Roux also offers brunch on Sunday from 12 am to 18:00.
Located in a “connected” Athens, its style is more “alternative”.
Its specialties are bagels, pancakes with maple syrup, burgers (Chicken, Italian, Thai) and toasts (Monsieur, Madam and Mama Mia) and the benedict and florentine eggs. And I must admit that I particularly loved the New York cheese cake 🙂
The price is very correct : between 12 and 16 euros and very friendly service.

Another very interesting place to have brunch on Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00, the New taste the stylish bar-restaurant of New Hotel in the heart of Athens.
What’s its main advantage :
- a beautiful terrace height (7th floor) overlooking Athens and the Acropolis,
- its interior decoration particularly neat and original, directed by Fernando and Humberto Campana, two Brazilian designers and brothers, known for their eco-sensitive approach and the use of contemporary craft,
- his meticulous service.
His specialties : omelettes and eggs Benedict, bread and homemade croissants, quiches and smoothies.
Price is higher: 25 to 30 euros per person.

The price is between 20 and 25 euros.
