I went for the most simple option, a pie called "kuru". I just loved its taste, simple, without being oily, and its price. One of the best snacks I had in the centre of Athens.

Try the spinach and chicken pie, are the best I ever had - Ariston is well known for their traditional cheese pies but i love the chicken and meat pies. Tourists must also try the products here, originally Greek in very good prices.

The original street food before it became a thing. This is how filled pitas should taste, offering a wide variety of classics. You might find filled pitas that offer brighter choices elsewhere, updated for the foodie palate. This is old school food, the place definitely shows its age, but that's just part of the charm. Just a block up from... More

It's a small bakery with a huge variety of home-made pies, from classical spanakopita with spinach to variations with sweet red peppers, cheese or even pumpkin; their sweet pies are excellent as well. You can't sit down inside, but hey!, for 2€ you'll get some great street food. Thumbs up for Ariston, literally "the best".

Ariston has been around since 1910. It is certainly clear why. Ariston bakes the best pies in Athens, whether it is cheese pies, spinacjh pies, meat pies, or any of the several freshly-baked offerings. Cheap, fresh, and tasty - what a winsome combination!

The pies here are wonderful. We stopped by and grabbed a few for lunch. Lots of different options - vegetarian and meat. The pies are soft and warm. The spinach and feta and the sweet red pepper were delicious.

We read about this place on a Greek breakfast blog, and it also had really high TripAdvisor reviews so came by for breakfast one day before heading out. We ordered a potato & cheese pie (whole wrapped), and also a mushroom, chicken and mustard pie (sliced type), €2 each. The pastries were lukewarm and not that crispy, so it was... More

This is a traditional place for pies in central Athens, that has already been there for many decades. People are nice and friendly. They have standard value and good prices. Knowing the whereabouts in Athens, I can get a better cheese or spinach pie (they produce in all bakeries) or some specific type of pie elsewhere, but this place has... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
