Lukumades is a traditional Greek doughnut and also the name of this café easily found in Athens. There you can find the famous treat and also ice creams, different types of coffee and other goodies to make your day sweeter while in Athens.
It was summer when we went to Athens, so of course, we had to try the famous (everyone had a cup on the streets) of Cappuccino Freddo and to top it up, why not try the traditional lukumades? Here we go:
- Cappuccino Freddo
- Double chocolate cookies – praline brioche ice cream, white chocolate, chocolate praline and oreo cookies.
Cappuccino Freddo was good but had nothing special. It was a refreshing drink under those 40C degrees that day, though.
Turning to the lukumades, they are basically doughnuts coated in sugar syrup. In this case, the one we bought had ice cream, oreo cookies, and some chocolate sauce. It was indeed good but extremely sweet, so go for it only if you have a sweet tooth, for us it was too much and we left behind like 80% of it.
Next time I would order just plain lukumades to have with a cup of coffee. 🙂
Good place for a break and to have a nice coffee.
