Local pastry shop chain in Kalamata, with exceptionally high quality products. The place to buy sweets as gifts for friends with a local twist. Don't miss the "ekmek" and the "Mille-feuille" made on spot.

Athanasiou is a must visit if you like traditional Greek sweets. All fresh, made in front of you and their taste is divine...anything you choose is great, You just have to be patient with the service because it will take some time,

I drove down to Kalamata from Nafplio in order to taste the wonderful pastries, ice-cream and coffee that I had read about. The drive was about two hours and was well worth the effort. One of three stores in the Kalamata area, I went to the store on Navarino Street. It was everything and more than I had read, it... More

Visited the place on a sunny Sunday. I would suggest it for the good quality of fresh and tasty snacks that you do not easily find. Personnel was polite and helpful though it took them some time to serve us. The only minus point is that its not spacious, tables are almost one next to the other.

The food was delicious and great value for money. We had a very friendly waiter who greeted us every time we went as if we were family. Excellent seafood.

Wonderful location on the main street close to the sea, large cafe with many tables but not enough staff. Waiting 12' before someone attended and another 20' before the order was executed is not what I expect from a so well known cafe. Inside you can find a large selection of pies, sandwitches and desserts.

If you are interested in the food of the culture, this bakery is iconic in the area and was recommended to us by our guide in Olympia. There are two locations in Kalamata, one in the square (this one) but the better and bigger one is on the way into town. We visited this one and the other one twice,... More

We visited Athanasiou cafe/bakery in Kalamata with high hopes and although it wasn't bad...it was simply average and definitely didn't live up to the hype. We tried the Portokalopita (Orange Pie) this time and it was (again) quite average.
