A Kolonaki institution, this urban-style ouzeri reminiscent of an old-fashioned French bistro is slightly fancier than the normal mezedopoleio, with cloth napkins, candles on the tables, and a handsome dark-wood interior, serving politicians on their lunch break from the Greek parliament nearby. The menu offers imaginative twists on Greek classic dishes. For the freshest dishes, ask the waiter for the day's specials, which include traditional fare such as kolokithokeftedes
(fried zucchini balls), marinated octopus, and roast suckling pig, as well as more-modern creations, such as Kafeneio's mixed greens salad with pomegranate.
