This vicinity went without a bakery for many years. However long Athan's has been open, I have been an ardent customer. Their cafe is so relaxed and cozy--love it! One of my best purchases was around Easter, when they made galactaboureko (?sp.)--something I had not...More

Great selection and high quality products. If these folks were friendly, we would have said excellent. "Nice" counts with us.

Coffee, cake (or for me scones) and ice cream for kids little and large. For me it was a treat to find really short, soft, fresh scones in / near Boston and Athan's does great scones. A great local coffee shop. Good long opening hours.

We stopped after dinner for dessert and the chocolate pastries were fantastic. The almond yellow cake was good. The service was very good and she helped us select what we wanted- even discouraged us from selecting some!
