Updated: 8 October 2016
Plaka sits on the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and is one of the most historical neighborhoods of Athens. There are plenty of great brunch and breakfast spots hidden in its labyrinthine streets to start your day well; we pick some of the best in this lively area of the Greek capital.

Ydria

Ydria is a classic Greek restaurant located on Andrianou street, in the heart of Plaka, and offers a view of the Roman Agora. Open from early in the morning, it serves breakfast from 7am until noon. Chef Giannis Fotakis creates amazing dishes, including freshly cut salads and traditional Greek pies for brunch or a light lunch.

Yiasemi is much more than just a traditional local cafe; located on the narrow steps of Mnisikleous street it is a favorite with leading actors from Greek movies who come to enjoy their coffee here (as the numerous photos on the walls attest). Visit it in the morning to enjoy delicious spoon sweets accompanied by genuine Greek coffee and you won’t regret it.
