Adonis @ Nea Smyrni

In a weekday afternoon, GH and I met up in Nea Smyrne for a coffee to kill time until start of the movie that we were planning to see with a couple of friends.

Plateia Neas Smyrnis is one of the most convenient places for coffee. The huge piazza/park is surrounded by a couple of dozens of cafeterias and ice cream shops. There is a plenty of choices.

On that day, we stopped at Adonis which I believe is one of the institutions of Nea Smyrni. There is another outlet just above Mikrolimano of Piraeus.

It is situated at the 1st floor of the building of which the ground floor is occupied by Flocafe. If you are not careful, you won't find it.

We were seated at one of the tables in the piazza, but also the indoor tables are quite nice having a view to the piazza.

In the menu, a coffee was priced around 4 Euro, but there was this offer when we visited and we paid only 3.50 Euro p.p.

Not quite clear when this offer is valid as it is not written, but I suppose it is a permanent thing, as this sheet was filed in the menu folder as well as shown in plastic stands on each table.

There was also an offer for beers.

When we ordered coffee, the waiter asked us if we wanted sweet or savoury. We did not quite get him (when we placed the order, we were not aware of the offer) and he explained that we could choose between cake and sandwich as a complement.

The cake turned out to be a very small piece of sponge which is laughable because many cafeterias offer better cakes without pretending anything.

As this place is also a restaurant, we might go there again, when we want to order sandwich, because restaurant-cafeterias offer better sandwich than pure cafeterias.

And afterwards, we went to see the movie Pacific Rim.

If I say that it is about a series of combats between Transformers and Aliens, I think I give you a pretty good idea. If it is what you want (and anything else), you will enjoy it as we did.
