Tasty Meze in Traditional Restaurant
To Kafeneio is a traditional Greek restaurant in the famous Plaka area of Athens, Greece
. Set in an old house just around the corner from all the colorful graffiti on Scholiou, To Kafeneio specializes in homestyle Greek cuisine. Select a bunch of meze to share from the cute wood-bound menu. You can't really go wrong, but the fava beans, grilled cheese with honey, sardines, and cheese pastries are all must-try dishes. Meatball fans should also try "Meatballs with THE sauce," a house specialty made from a traditional recipe—many people love it; others think it's merely ok. Reasonably priced and palatable carafes of house wine are also available. To Kafeneio gets busy in the evenings, but does take reservations—and early walk-ins should be fine.
