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.
