The Underdog


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

The Underdog is a micro-roastery (with third wave coffee shop services) and an alternative beer bar in Thisio (Athens), Greece. We are a company that takes pride in serving a unique coffee experience, breaking the anonymity of served beans by bringing out a delicate and dynamic clarity in every coffee we produce. We feel fortunate to be sourcing and roasting some of the finest and cleanest coffees available plus serving to all of you a wide selection of unique small batch beers and off course every weekend our delicious brunch menu. We are forever curious and always uncompromising in our quest for delicious specialty coffee-beer-brunch.

Underdog is a nice place to pop in for a coffee and something sweet on your walk from the Acropolis to the Agora. They know their coffee, and seem to carry geisha, one of my favorite varieties (although I didn't ask for it). Expect light...More

Best coffee shop in Athens. The space itself is gorgeous and has lots of room but the coffee was even more delightful. We would have loved to eat brunch here if we had come earlier. The cocktails and beer selection also looked impressive. They have...More

Had a late brunch with two good friends on a very rain soaked Sunday. Very cool looking place that could at first glance be expected to be pretentious but the staff ensure that’s not the case. Awesome coffee bar in the centre with some very...More

The place is in the archaeological triangle of Acropolis, in a small pedestrian road. It has a nice outdoor (semi-covered) backyard. Coffee is great and brunch options wide. Service was good (in our visit the place was not crowded).

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
