Athens: a homey vibe for locals at Millybird House

Ultra high aesthetics, a black and white striped tent and a homey vibe is what you first notice when you land at Millybird. But there’s so much more thought put into this cosy corner of Pagrati, you definitely need to visit soon. Just don’t tell too many of your friends, so that we can still retain the vibe!

Mushroom and bacon omelette and butter croissant

I first stumbled upon this cute café when randomly looking for new places on Maps. Neglecting opening hours, I ventured to the city centre a couple of times but to no avail. On the third time, a friend of mine pushed real hard for going there so I gave them a last chance. Little did I know I was going to bump into an old acquaintance that has now left the corporate world to create this hidden gem. Melissa Papayiannopoulou has orchestrated many unique furniture pieces into what has now transformed into her new living room, given that they recently started opening also on Sundays!

Inspired by a retro look and feel, Millybird gracefully occupies a corner in nowadays busy Pagrati just moments away from the new Goulandris Museum. The main bar is carefully stocked with some daily treats – you should definitely try the poppyseed brioche with prosciutto and parmesan!– and they also carry a brunch menu for those that want to go wild on eggs!

What’s unique about Millybird is that most of the crowd this cute establishment attracted, is definitely consistent with what its owner would ask for. A sophisticated young crowd that allows rooms for pet and wants to enjoy a good cup of coffee and some downtempo time… just as you would do in your own living room.

Go Millybird team!
