Vegan Food in Athens and Mainland Greece

My eldest son and I have just returned from a tour of Greece, well, just a bit of it, we can’t wait to go back and see more.

I know some people think vegetarians will starve in Greece, it has reputation for not serving veggie food.  Not true.  We had some OK meals and some delicious feasts whilst there.  I would love to recommend a few places.

Vegetarian Food in Athens

Some fantastic food is to be had in the Acropolis museum.  There is a wonderful view and the cafe is beyond the entry barrier.  I had a lovely vegan meal of beans and greens here.

Almost all cafes do stuffed peppers and/or stuffed tomatoes, we had some lovely veggies at “God’s Restaurant” along the cafe strip as you go towards Acropolis and its museum.

I must also recommend “Avocado” a specifically veg*n cafe open 8.30am-7pm.  It is about 15-20 mins walk from Acropolis museum or the Temple of Zeus. 5 mins walk from  Syntagma  & the Parliament building.  It is very expensive, as you can expect from capital city location, but the food was worth it.

The staff suggested I try a “raw” cake which I would not have thought to choose, the flavour was amazing, but it was too much!

Vegan Food when visiting Ancient Olympia in Greece

I must mention the restaurant at the Best Western Europa Hotel, there was a great choice of vegan food on the menu, different meals to what we had anywhere else and the quality was excellent.  Dinner was from 7.30 pm and I think dinner for 2 would typically be around £25-30 ish.

Next, my pudding at Avocado’s.

Finally, my dinner at the Acropolis museum.
