Travel Food People - Me Kolonaki, Athens

It’s more than one year now that Me Kolonaki has been tending to the hip and elegant crowd of downtown Athens, so it was high time we put everything in writing. Having brunched a few times by now, we can safely say it’s the best brunch option around if you’re looking for a refreshing ambience with high quality treats.

As we sit at one of the table outside, we gaze over the huge water bottles filled with infused water and various fruit slices and herbs enough to quench our thirst. A simple idea, yet oh so rare in Athens these days. We order a freddo espresso and a freshly-squeezed orange juice whilst we ponder over the menu. Are you a vegan? Check. Are you a fitster? Check. Are you a jetsetter? Check. No matter how you take your eggs and avo slices, Me Kolonaki has something in store for you!

Classic as hell, eggs avocado toast is generally decent here. Nothing fancy, just a tad of turkey slice and cheese to make things a bit more interesting. We take the first bite of the grilled cheese sandwich with spinach and as soon as it hits our taste buds we recall the first time we ever tried a good ol’ crunchy spanakopitta (spinach pie). Going through a variety of newspapers and magazines, we also make time to peoeplewatch.

To top that off, we also indulge in an Israeli-inspired egg dish… poached eggs with gremolata, oven baked tomatoes and grilled haloumi on the side – oh wow! And we save the best for last, a delicious rich flavour 2% fat yoghurt bowl topped with berries and granola.

Me Kolonaki is nestled in an off central location away from the buzzing crowd of the main square; yet it attracts all sorts of taste aficionados. Once our first order settles in our belly, we go ahead with our dessert! A candied slice of coconut french toast topped with blueberries, almond flakes and maple syrup which is also very good.
