bistrot1

Yesterday i had a crush. Ι was wandering around the Acropolis Museum area, when I accidentally noticed a tiny cafe, with floral curtains calling my name. Theodora was standing behind the window smiling at my very,very excited face which had just made a great discovery.

The magic of this place might be it’s miniature size, reflecting a homey atmosphere, a sophisticated aesthetics and the combination between great coffee brews, nostalgic or classical music, a colourful vintage interior, and tons of flowers in vases.

Theodora is an actress, and her cafe is the mirror of her personality and her background in drama. “Lotte” is her own world, built with love, patience and a huge support by close friends. The majority of the things inside this charming place is carefully selected by Theodora during her weekend strolls at the vintage and second hand markets. Everything is special including her floor tiles which belonged to Pireus Municipal Theatre before its restoration.

Inside, It feels more like a room for reading and cogitation, than a common coffee shop. If you leave your book at home, there will be a variety of classic novels to choose from and match your cappuccino. The coffee served is “Caffè del Doge”, coming straight from an Italian brewing company located in Venice.

To wake up earlier so that I can visit “Lotte” for my morning espresso, read a couple of pages from my favourite book and start my crazy working day after this petite ritual. Our everyday life craves for quality time, and we shall be able to devote some, even if it’s sometimes as little as an espresso shot.
