Cafe Avissinia: This was such a cute cafe. The design was lovely, plus it is nestled right in the center of a vintage flea market which only added more character to this amazing spot. Plus, their freddo cappuccino is something you must try!
Grande Bretagne Rooftop Bar: This rooftop bar was magical. It is located on the very top floor of an iconic Athenian hotel, which provided one of the most amazing views of the Acropolis! The food there can be a bit pricy, so if you just want to see Athens' ancient architecture shine at night, a simple cocktail at the bar is all you need to get.
O Kostas Souvlaki: This was one of the most charming souvlaki places we encountered. It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant, and there's always a long line for the best of reasons, but it's totally worth it.
Falafellas: If you are looking for a cheap and quick eat, this is the place! They serve flavorful falafel pitas that are so huge it was almost to big for me to finish. Don't worry, I made sure to eat it all.
Melitini: This place was some of the best food we had in Greece—in fact some of the best food we've ever had. We actually had to stop ordering food here because our table wan't big enough, which is not too bad of a problem in my opinion. We had all of the greek staples here like tzatziki and greek salads, plus we had the most amazing fried potatoes covered in the best feta in the world.
Pito Gyros: When in Santorini it's always great to have a quick and easy place to eat within arm's reach. So if you are looking for something other than a sit down meal, don't look any further. This place is the king of gyros and we've never had better.
Kastro: This restaurant is all about the view. In Oia you will find a sea of restaurants that give you some of the best views in the city. This spot provided us with great food, great wine, and an unforgettable view.
Panificio Panella: This cafe was heaven. After navigating through a bunch of touristy spots, this place was a breath of fresh air. Freshly baked pastries and flavorful espresso can be found in this cafe which also doubles as a general store of sorts.
Pizzarium: I can't tell you how many people recommended this spot. John and I took quite the long walk to get here, but it was beyond worth it. I was told that their pizza topping options change almost every hour, or at least everyday, so there is always something new to try.
Da Enzo: This restaurant is a little hidden gem, tucked away from any main streets or other touristy type of places. A line usually forms about 15 minutes before they open, so if you are going to go, I recommend getting there a little early if you want to eat right away. They serve a lot of classic Italian dishes, and based on what we ordered, it all tastes incredible. John actually said that he had the best carbonara of his life there, and after taking a bite I'd have to agree.
Fatamorgana: The best gelato. This spot was recommended to me by Lily from Kale and Caramel, and Sherrie from With Food + Love, and man it did not disappoint. They have so many flavors to choose from, some of which are very traditional, while others are some of the most unique flavors I have ever heard of.
