The Zillers Pastry Bar 

Right in the centre of the buzzing Plaka district, you will find a little slice of Paris at this new pastry bar serving a decadent range of croissants, fruit tarts and eclairs (to name a few)!

Bon Bonfait Maison L’atelier 

Boutique pastry store Bon Bon Fait Maison made its way over from Kythira to Mitropoleos Street in 2020 and now the L’atelier version is housed in a gorgeous 19th-century mansion in the heart of Athens. This all-day bistro offers a delectable selection of French pastries – ideal for brunch or an afternoon pick me up. Here you can indulge in French treats with a delicate Greek touch – think creamy millefeuille with roasted pistachios from the island of Aegina, Fraisier cake with Greek EVOO, and chocolate tart with Kythirian sea salt!

Bread BC

Using slow-maturing natural yeast, this new bakery serves bread made with natural sourdough created through a long fermentation process. Pick up a baguette and a traditional loaf for home, or if you’re after something sweet, options include Paris Brest, a slice of apple pie, or traditional Greek biscuits such as melomakarona and kourabiedes.

With a playful take on the new age bakery, Neropistolo (water gun) serves handmade artisanal sourdough, delicious buttery croissants filled with ham and cheese, as well as Madagascar vanilla cream buns! The tiny but carefully thought-out space (designed by Yatzer extraordinaire Costas Voyatzis) features splashes of wood, marble, metal, and specially designed blue bricks that add a cool, colourful touch.  

A: 35 Voulis, Athens 

La Linda Bakery

Athenians can now taste traditional bread such as cremonas and pan de campo from Rio de la Plata (located on the border of Uruguay and Argentina) at La Linda, a family-run bakery that originated in the coastal city of Punta del Este and just opened its doors in Glyfada! For those craving something sweet, make sure to try their famous Rogel, also known as the Argentine millefeuille – it’s a secret family recipe featuring layers of biscuits and dulce de leche!

Jesus Crust

From cardamon buns and mini babka’s to brioche sandwiches and turmeric bagels- this new bakery in Neo Psychiko is the perfect place to grab a good coffee and breakfast on the run! Offering different types of breads- such as wholemeal, carob, oatmeal and multigrain- the cinnamon scrolls and salted caramel cookies are also a stand-out! 

A: 9 Solomou, Neo Psychiko


Head over to the hip Pangrati hood where you’ll discover a new artisanal bakery serving freshly made loaves including a signature sourdough with walnuts and lemon zest (just get in early as it’s a hit with locals)! And if you prefer something sweet check out the cinnamon butter and rich pumpkin cream cheesecake or the double chocolate hazelnut tart! We also recommend sampling some sourdough with the homemade Seville orange and ginger marmalade.

Oven Glyfada 

Having opened its first micro bakery in the southern suburb of Voula, Oven has now opened its second store at nearby Glyfada. Serving grilled cheese sandwiches with truffle, forest fruit tarts, traditional cheese pies, quiches and tsoureki (sweet bread)- all the handcrafted baked goods are made daily using locally sourced high-quality ingredients.

Cova Astir Marina

Cova Astir with its scent of freshly baked croissants, traditional tarts and Italian pastries quickly transports visitors to Milan, where this famous pastry store first opened its doors in 1817. Renowned for its decadent sweets and elegant décor, this impressive patisserie is now located at Astir Marina in the upscale neighbourhood of Vouliagmeni.
