...then this is just the place. It has a buffet every day where you get special dishes and salads by weight, not by portions. Also you get sweet with very special ingredients, not your regural mille-feuille, profiterole and pastries that you get everywhere else in the city. The only drawbacks are the limited seating-especially for a late lunch around 3 it does get very crowded-and the prices. It might be worth it but it is expensive. Overall, it's the place to go if you're looking for something more special!

The restaurant shows a new trend; you may select among a quite variuos set of dishes; they are all extremely well prepared, from pasta, to pizza, to parmigiana, to fish, the roast-beef, lamb, etc... and then you may end your meal with an excellent wide selection of ice-creams and sweets!

The deco of the place is exceptional!!!

The quality, the presentation, the quantity and the taste of whatever we have tasted was fantastic!

Is an ideal place for all the hours of the day, seven days a week.

Well done!!!

Even though I have to admit that everything I tried in "Ble" was mostly tasty, the prices were outrageous (I once paid 9 euros for 1,5 portion of tiramisu, and it didn't even taste that good (I have tried -and made myself- many better tiramisu's in my life))!! And I don't understand why, especially since most bakeries/patisseries found in Thessaloniki are usually offering equally tasteful products (or even tastier) at much lower prices!

Moreover, as a Cretan, I find most Cretan sweets and pies offered in Ble to be of moderate taste -and freshness sometimes- (compared to the original ones) and their prices are up to 3 times (300%!!) higher than those you find in Crete!!

Having tried most Ble's competitors and since I am living in Thessaloniki during the last 5 years of depression, I still find it extremely difficult to believe that people in Thessaloniki decide to pay a small fortune at "Ble" instead of trying almost any other bakery-patisserie in Thesaloniki.

That said, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone due to their pricing policy, which -to my opinion, especially in these hard times- is insulting. And I say that because their prices are not reflected in their food's taste or quality, but rather in their shops' decoration.

Under Thessaloniki sun and warm weather, with lots of shopping on Tsimiski street you need a place to relax and eat on Ag. Sophia street, corner with Tsimiski, at BLE. Well situated in the centre, Ble offer a great variety of salads, cooked food, bread, pizzas, pies and sweets, as well a delicious ice cream. The food is very good and fresh, with lots of choices, but sweets are really delicious, and ice cream is great. I highly recommend
