Updated: 31 January 2017
As you may know, dessert is not typically the star of the menu in Greek restaurants. But don’t despair if you have a sweet tooth, Athens is home to a number of haunts serving delicious treats – if you know where to look. Here are the best spots for desserts to satisfy any sugar craving.

Since opening its doors just over a year ago in the hip Psyrri district, Little Kook has made quite an impression. With its ultra-fantasy façade and exuberant décor, the place is impossible to miss. But what will make you come back and beg for more is definitely its rich menu, filled with an abundance of cakes, cupcakes and sweets.

If you think Psyrri is all about the parties, it’s time to rethink your opinion. While it may be true that the district is clearly a nightlife hotspot, it also has a strong offensive when it comes to dessert. Case in point, Nancy’s Sweet Home, a quaint, little shop where you can discover and taste traditional Greek sweets.

We can all agree there’s nothing like a refreshing ice cream on a hot summer’s day. To discover unique flavours made by artisan glaciers, head to Le Greche, where taste takes centre stage. Try the Gianduja or Nata Di Fiore, although the pistachio ice cream and the mandarin sorbet are also to die for.
