The Best Street Food In Athens
In a bustling city like Athens, it’s easy to find street food of all different kinds. But what are the places that offer the best food? Why Athens tells us where to find a great sandwich, the best souvlaki, delicious pies, and for our sweet tooth, loukoumades.

Pie Works

The pies at Pie Works go beyond the traditional spanakopita or spinach pie, with delectable meals wrapped in a light, crispy pastry. The breakfast pies will truly brighten up your morning. Eat in or take away.

Kostas Souvlaki

For the best souvlaki in central Athens, look no further than Kostas. Upholding a 65-year-old tradition, the delicate flavours are a combination of fresh ingredients and quality meats on oil free pita bread. You’ll need to get in early. The daily line ups usually sees Kosta all sold out by 3pm.

There’s nothing more satisfying than loukoumades which are Greek style doughnuts. The modern day version is found in the middle of the very hip Agias Irinis Square. You can go traditional with honey, cinnamon and sesame seeds sprinkled on top or go all out with chocolate filled centres with a side of ice-cream.

Ariston Bakery (since 1910)
Serving hot, delectable pies in Athens since 1910, Ariston is as much an institution as an Athenian bakery. On the edge of Syntagma square you will find morning line ups for the famous “kourou” pies, the crescent-shaped pastries filled with feta cheese. You’ll also find a myriad of other sweet and savoury varieties. Closed on Sundays.
