Syn Athina @ Thissio

I don't remember any more why we ended up there, but Hubby and I stopped at a cafeteria called "Syn Athina..." at the beginning of Iraklidon Street in Thissio.

Syn Athena

The name comes from a famous (i.e. famous to the Greeks, but not necessarily for us foreigners!) Greek proverb "Συν Αθηνά και χείρα κίνει", i.e. "together with Goddess Athena, move your hand", i.e. (again), "if you want to achieve something, it is not enough to pray to Athena, but you have to make your move as well".

I said it is a cafeteria, but the truth is that it serves also meze dishes together with crepes and waffles.

But we ordered only drinks.

Ice espresso for me and frappé for Hubby. I don't remember the exact price, but it was between 7 and 8 euros for both of them, which is an average price you pay in "nice" cafeterias in central Athens.

The best thing about this place is the view.

If you are lucky enough to grab a table near Apostlou Pavlou Road side, you get the Acropolis for free.

Well, you get the same, or maybe better view from another cafeteria-mezedopoleio Athenaion Politeia nearby, but it is a good thing to have alternative, isn't it?

I found the website of this place, but it is still under construction (but at least, address and phone number are there).
