When it comes to coffee shops in Athens, the options are endless.
One of the biggest draws for Greece digital nomads is the laidback lifestyle. Coffee shops in Athens are the kind of place where you can spend a whole afternoon relaxing, quietly sipping your cappuccino or reading a book.
Unlike other popular digital nomad destinations, however, not every coffee shop in Athens is suitable for working. That’s why we’ve scouted out the best spots based on wifi connection, seating options, food and drink menu, and general working environment.
Here are our top picks for coffee shops in Athens!

1. Dope Coffee
This place was without a doubt my favorite coffee shop in Athens. The upstairs space at Dope Coffeeis quiet, bright, and airy; busy, but never crowded. The nice thing about this place is there are always a few other people working there, which is rare for coffee shops in Athens.
With a great location downtown, and freshly roasted coffee, you can’t beat it!

Tucked away in a quiet alley, Peek a Bloomis the perfect place to spend your workday. With a full menu of food offerings and quality coffee, there’s no reason to leave! The tables offer plenty of workspace and you can choose from indoor or outdoor seating.

Taf is one of the most popular coffee shops in Athens, attracting both locals and expats alike. The seating is comfortable and the bright, Scandinavian style space is perfect for working, and the service is always friendly.
