dessert bowl at Fresh pastry store in Athens

Last week on my Saturday in Athens walk I mentioned Fresh pastry stores and particularly their Valaoritou branch and since it’s a pastry store/cafe that should be on your list if you visit Athens I came back with a full post!

Fresh is a well known chain of chic pastry stores in Athens and suburbs. It’s well known for cakes, assorted pastries and dessert bowls. But the dessert options don’t end there! In these pastry stores you’ll also find macarons, cookies, chocolate and gluten free desserts. A few weeks before Christmas, Fresh opened a new branch in Valaoritou street in Kolonaki neighborhood in Athens, pretty close to Syntagma square.

The space is designed Italian architect Paola Navone and features black and white tiles and large chandeliers. There are not many tables inside the store, but outdoor seating is also available, with heaters and blankets provided for the cold months!

Fresh’ location near Attica department store, Voukourestiou street and Kolonaki make it an ideal location for pre- or post-shopping stop. This particular store serves lunch and dinner as well!

So, what are you waiting for?

Essential information: Fresh is located in 7, Valaoritou street. More info (and drooling) over at its website.
