Review of Athan's Bakery

Athan's Bakery
Ranked #4 of 8 Bakeries in Brookline
Price range: US$1 - US$20
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 April 2017

My family and I seem to be some of the few folks in town who do not like Athan's. I have enjoyed some of their cakes and the cappuccino I had there once was nicely made. But the cookies are dry and tasteless - like sawdust. Yes, it has a European atmosphere - but not necessarily a nice European cafe.

Felt right at home in Greece with their welcoming service, truly delicious Greek cookies/desserts and other great delicacies!! Well worth visiting for a Greek coffee or breakfast, lunch or even dinner !!!

There are plenty of classics but also some great Greek inspired desserts here. I have tried a number but always come back to the noisette or the amendoa. I once bought a selection of their smaller confections in lieu of a full cake and have never made my mother happier! Lovely little place to sit in the back as well with a coffee bar. The little nut confections are also quite good.

Probably, I should not write this review..I have been in this place more than 100 times.. to grab a cappuccino or a cup of tea, a bag of chocolate or bag of cookies or thiramisu cake - oh-h..do not do it, if you love chocolate...you will get hooked with this place forever..and, of course, we should eat grass, not cookies and chocolate..

Athens Bakery is a wonderful European style café, serving the most delish, yummy and European deserts, cakes and pastries. The atmosphere is friendly, the food very good but a little on the high side. This is a god place to stop in for a little snack while traveling around Brookline. Don't expect low prices, because this is not a cheap cup of tea or latte.
