Queen Bee

 

I found this very popular cafe/bakery in the heart of Kolonaki, not far from my Divani Caravel Hotel. It was 9am on Saturday morning and it was already full with locals. Nevertheless, it was still easy to get a table on the street corner infront of their restaurant.

Their breakfast selection was excellent. Their coffee beans are being directly sourced from Brooklyn on a weekly basis and the robustness of a French bistro, Queen Bee has all the buzz you could imagine for all day dining and people watching.

The menu is full of pastries, one of which you must not miss is their double-baked croissants filled with almond cream and sprinkled with powder sugar! Eggs are daily on their menu too, scrambled, poached or fried, although one must go for the avo toast. This is what I ordered and it was delicious. Also try the egg breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, caramelised onions and cheddar cheese.

Chia seeds are also available on the berry breakfast bowl, specially prepared with a handmade jam and granola. There is also some kick-ass orange juice and other smoothies served chilled, as well as an espresso on the rocks, not quite the same as the shaken espresso Greeks call freddo.

Also the real reason for making it to Queen Bee in Kolonaki, lies behind their excellent team that has paid all the right attention to all little details, from impeccable and very friendly service.
