This is where you can taste authentic local recipes and premium deli products from all over Greece in the heart of this Athens shopping and historical center.

You will be introduced to the aromatic ritual of Greek coffee making in hovoli (hot sand). Sip, savor and listen to its story that goes a long way back in time. The next meeting spot will be the kitchenette.
