Avocado was the first veggie restaurant in Athens that I ever tried. I was just walking around Athens, taking in the local scene when we happened to come across this place 2 years ago. Immediately, I begged my friend to walk in and 5 minutes later we walked out holding 2 fresh smoothies. They were delicious and exactly what we needed in the scorching hot Greek heat. Since then, I have visited Avocado many times. Each time the staff there are just as great as the time before.
Avocado is a vegetarian restaurant with vegan and gluten free options. As you probably know by now, I am vegan and gluten free, so sometimes I have to make adjustments to the menu. The staff at Avocado have always worked with me on this. Sometimes I’d like a pasta with no cheese, sometimes I’d like a different gluten free noodle. They are always wonderful at accommodating me. The vibe in Avocado is very light and fresh – the decor is bright with hints of green. Over the last couple years, I have tried quite a few items on their menu. Unfortunately I don’t have photos of most of these as I had not started The Vegan Jetsetter yet. The food is always consistent; always tasty, never too oily. I most recently tried their new dish Rumi’s Dream (pictured below) and it was lovely. Avocado offers a full range menu – tons of freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, appetizers, salads, main meals, desserts and coffee and teas. Everything is average price for a vegetarian restaurant – approximately 13 euros for a main meal.Smoothie & Tea Bar:
