At this wholesome vegetarian café, all the ingredients are organic, seasonal and cruelty-free. The menu ranges from veggie burgers to rice bowls and macrobiotic noodles. Anyone with dietary restrictions and food intolerances is bound to find something on the menu. There’s often a wait for tables downstairs. Instead, head upstairs, where cushions are scattered around low tables. They do fantastic smoothies and juices, and their vegan, raw, sugar and gluten-free chocolate tart is much tastier than it sounds. Right next door is one of the best organic stores in Athens.

These kid-friendly restaurants also happen to serve amazing food for adults.

If you’re looking to escape the city for the day, this farm-to-table tavern is well worth the 45-minute drive or taxi ride from downtown Athens. Surrounded by the countryside, in the northern suburb of Stamata, the restaurant is located right on the farm where almost all of the ingredients come from. Don’t miss their famous cheese pie, roast goat, and just-picked salads.
