The Cycladic Café is a sleek, stylish and modern eatery located in the Museum of Cycladic Art, offering visitors a taste and experience of Cycladic food and culture. Housed in one of the most beautiful neoclassical buildings, this venue has became one of the must-visit spots of Athens.
The art deco of the cafe has been influenced by Early Cycladic culture, with marble benches and a plant wall, which are goes all the way up to the ceiling, creating an illusion of a large lush garden. The clean lines and white interior creates a calm, harmonious, serene environment. Not to mention the roof screens, which allows natural sunlight to filter through contributing to the space’s always illuminating and elegant appearance, even when it’s raining outside.
This chic cafe is open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, offering visitors a delicious and seasonal menu based on pure flavours and aromas of the Cyclades prepared with the freshest of ingredients. Eye catchers on the menu include the quinoa and smoked salmon salad, twisted pasta topped with tomato and basil sauce and the veal Souvlaki with Naxos fried potatoes and a yogurt sauce with thinly sliced baby cucumber.
Situated in the heart of the Museum, the cafe is in between the two buildings which are connected by a corridor. It is located next to the Museum’s shop and is a meeting point between the buildings that invites visitors to relax and enjoy a meal or coffee, before or after they also visit The Museum of Cycladic Art. It is a very interesting Museum, dedicated to the study and promotion of ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with special emphasis on Cycladic Art of the 3rd millennium BC.
