A unique mix of historic Athens and modern day Mediterranean culture
Athens, which sprawls well beyond its official limits, is unlike any other European capital. Home to roughly one-third of the Greek population, its fabric has been woven by successive waves of migrants – initially from the Greek provinces, today from abroad – since it was established in the 11th century B.C. The Greek capital may exhibit all the characteristics of a big city but at heart it remains a small town.

Babouras (καφενείο μπάμπουρας) is one of the nicest places to stop for coffee and drinks in Athens. It is usually full of people, mostly locals, but the occasional tourist is easy to spot. If you drop by early, you will find a seat easily.
What you should try at Babouras (καφενείο μπάμπουρας) is the unpasteurized ZEOS beer, which is affordable, and priced per liter. If you are hungry, they have traditional Greek hors d'oeuvres and other creative dishes inspired by local cuisine.
