We met up with a friend and went to a Glyfada branch of Chocolat in Easter Monday afternoon.
While Athens looked like a ghost town because of the holiday exodus, Glyfada was full of people. The cafeteria on Zisimopoulou suggested by Friend was so full that we were turned down at the entrance.
After 10 min hunt for an empty table, we found one at Chocolat on the same road. Chocolat is a mini-chain of patisserie-cafeteria-restaurant comprising 4 outlets Glyfada, Thissio and in Maroussi.
We had visited Chocolat (Chocolat 24 to be exact) once 1.5 or 2 years ago and have never come back since as we were not impressed by their sweets.
But when you cannot find other table, what can you do?
Friend ordered crepe with chocolate and sliced banana served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream.
Husband ordered Chocolate waffle with chocolate sauce and honey served with two scoops of ice cream (chocolate and vanilla).
The waffle was fluffy in the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. I prefer, however, heavier waffle. Probably my taste for waffle is eccentric considering I did not like waffle of Wafflehouse in Vouliagmeni either. Ice cream was OK, but did not have depth of good dairy.
The price was same for both, €9.50. Filter coffee was €4.50. We paid also 10% additional service charge for Easter.
