This October marks 100 years since Melina Mercouri was born and is very special to all Greeks.
The Ministry of Culture 2020 has declared 2020 as the “Year of Melina Mercouri”, and was set to mark the 100-year anniversary since the birth of internationally-acclaimed Greek actress and former culture minister, Melina Mercouri with a series of events.
Athens city center is full of charming coffee shops all very unique from the pink stylish Ellyz cafe to the quirky Little Kook desert shop.
This delightful cafe situated amongst the streets of Plaka is dedicated to the life of Melina Mercouri and certainly worth a stop during your visit to the area. We really enjoyed our coffee break discovering the life and times of this sensational star. The cafe is full of photos and journalist clippings following the life of Melina.
A true trip down memory lane for the Greek followers and visitors too.
