Do not take this recommendation lightly, Cheapos. While visiting Athens, it is worth going to Portes (take bus #450 or 550 and get off at Faros bus stop) just to sample the café’s distinctive frappuccinos.
If you like the flavors of coffee and chocolate blended together, opt for the Portes mochaccino. Hot or cold, the frappuccinos and mochaccinos at Portes are delectable—and heavily caffeinated—liquid desserts.
“Portes” means “doors,” and Portes Café surely opens new doors for its customers, whether they be culinary or artistic. The owner of the café is herself an artist, and she has conferred upon the décor a modern, sumptuous feel—the perfect accompaniment for the modern and sumptuous coffees on offer.
