Friendly & Helpful Greeks in Athens
From where the bus dropped us off, my sister and I along with several tourists made our way to Syntagma Square
on foot. We were being over confident that we could easily walk our way to the city centre.
The one thing we noticed about the people in Athens, Greece
is they are very friendly and helpful. At one point, we looked lost and an elderly man who happens to walk by stopped in his track and asked us if we needed help.
Although he spoke little English, he pointed out the way and made sure that we understood his directions before bidding us goodbye. Halfway through the journey, we got tired, felt hungry and decided to stop for lunch at the first café that caught our attention.
Scrumptious Greek Lunch At Boston Café By Manoli & Wife
For some reason, we decided to stray off the main street and ventured into a smaller street (Pontoirakleias Street). At the end of the street, we came across a charming little café with a lemon tree named Boston Café
. My sister and I agreed to have our light lunch at the café.
The café serves a variety of sandwiches, salads, pizzas, coffee, donuts and crepes at reasonable prices
. We ordered our foods and drinks at the counter and seated comfortably in the café. The café has excellent free WiFi
which we used to go online and stay connected.
My sister had the banana choco crepe
with orange juice while I had Caesar salad
and peach tea. Both were delicious! To our delight, the owners of the café, Mr. Manoli and wife treated us a traditional dessert – a huge serving of delectable Greek custard pie (Galaktoboureko)
and even gave us two bottles of chilled mineral water. We were very thankful for their generosity and kindness. This further strengthens our observation that the Greeks in Athens
are friendly, helpful and kind.
