This is a must-stop for a greek treat! Both savory and sweet options, but you can't go wrong with classic greek donuts (loukamades, aka fried dough balls!) smothered in honey and cinnamon, or any other of many topping options. Bring a friend and try multiple...More

If you’re in Athens, in particular, the Ermou district of town, pop into Lukumades. Despite a long line late at night, counter service is quick and our order was received promptly and freshly made. The loukoumades (hot honey puff donuts) were delicious. Customers are able...More

You must try this place especially if you are a visitor here in Athens. Tons of choices and place has cool vibe. I have to say I was surprised how friendly and great the staff is. I will highly recommend this place to anyone visiting.

Lukumades is a fun place to watch first hand how they prepare this sweet desert dish. It's more commercialized than we have at our local Greek Orthodox Church festival back home (here you can add fillings and the shapes are all perfect spheres) but it's...More

We went there multiple times. Hot freshly made loukumades. (Better than grandma used to make.) I recommend honey and cinnamon. Wife and kid loved the powdered sugar ones. Open pretty late. Great for late night snack attacks.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a

Why we are always ending up complicated things ? Having this in mind, we decided to create a simple yet modern space offering the all-time classic and beloved round and crisp lukumades with honey and cinnamon. The original lukumades which we all know since kids are being made in an open-kitchen, freshly-fried in front of your eyes and being served in the perfect warming temperature. Our recipe is old, simple, traditional and above all perfectly executed. In order to satisfy even the most demanding lukumades lovers, we started thinking of more mixing options so... We fiilled them with a unique "injection" procedure, we put ice cream on the side...and many other different and delicious toppings... We present them to you filled with chocolate praline, lemon and mastiha cream, with vanilla-honey ice cream & caramelized almonds, kazan dipi ice cream for more oriental memories or deeped in hot chocolate praline. Come over to taste our lukumades and discover your favorite combination !
