Good waffles! - Edit

We went here after reading all the good reviews, so had quite high expectations. We ordered vegan waffles with 1 scoop of ice cream. It wasn't quite as good as we had hoped, but it was pretty nice! There were two gelato flavors there (seemed a bit more like sorbet to me) which were banana and plum. Good location, kinda average setting. Would recommend checking it out.

VEGANS EAT HERE! - Edit

I had the vegan nutella waffle with ice cream and omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom!!!! They have loads of vegan flavors that they change, so it's not the same all the time. I have tried chocolate, pear, pineapple, coconut, pomegranate and fruit salad (over the course of a weeks holiday) I have no idea what other flavors they have but I recommend it all! My dad also had a regular milk ice cream and he enjoyed it so this place is good for everyone!

Pros: Amazing vegan ice cream , Amazing vegan waffles, Very friendly service

Cons: None, this place is amazing!

Delicious ice cream - Edit

Yes, they did it again. First time I found this place it brightened my day and this time it gave me a big smile again. This is great, several delicious vegan ice cream types, all nicely presented and labelled. Perfect place for an ice-cream pit stop right in the center of Athens, very close to the Acropolis and a metro stop.

They are prepared for English speakers and waffle eaters.

Would prefer to get the ice cream in a cone, but ok, you can also have it on a waffle.

Pros: delicious ice cream, all labelled , waffles, location

Stumbled across this when visiting the Acropolis: family of four vegans all fully satisfied! Came early for some nice cream: delicious and clearly marked, so are now back for soy milk iced coffee, toasted vegan cheese sandwiches and vegan waffles and crepes. Fab.

Vegan treats! - Edit

I stopped by after a visit to the Acropolis and had their peach sorbet and lemon sorbet. I loved both, and the peach sorbet was especially marvelous.

They also have a large section of their menu (~two pages) dedicated to other vegan delights, including crepes, waffles, coffees, etc.

Pros: Peach sorbet!

Only vegan ice cream in Athens - Edit

Finally, there is a place in Athens that offers vegan ice cream!

There are different varieties depending on the day, and so far they have all been decent. The chocolate one is fairly good!

I would like to see more options made with plant milk. Sorbet is nice, but there are more possibilities in veganism.

Pros: Decent vegan options

Cons: Not enough plant milk options, Closed on Sundays

Amazing waffles and ice cream - Edit

This place is a must for visitors of Athens on a hot day. Their ice cream tastes delicious, in particular coconut and dark chocolate are terrific. The waffles are also really good and it is nice to see vegan sweets advertised so close to the major tourist attraction of Athens. Make sure to check them out but be aware, portions are huge!

Pros: Great ice cream, Vegan waffles, and advertised as such, close to Acropolis

The Best Vegan Icecream!!!! - Edit

This awesome gelato shops offers several flavours of which 8 or so are vegan. I tried the chocolate, the plum, the banana and the coconut. All amazing! Staff were friendly and let us know the waffle cone was not vegan as it contained egg. They do a vegan waffle with vegan Nutella tho (which I'll be going back for). The scoops were also super big. Not sure if that's the norm or the guy found my extreme excitement at finally being able to eat vegan Icecream amusing so he gave us extra large portions. This place has my vote!

Pros: heaps of delicious vegan flavours, large portions

Cons: not 100% vegan

Nice place, nice waffle - Edit

A really nice place, close to the metro station of Akropolis, offers vegan ice cream, vegan waffles with syrup/nutella/fruits/ice cream, vegan cappuccino and vegan sanwich with vegan cheese. The location isn't something special, but is really easy to find. Self-service.

Pros: Tasty, Easy to find, Many options

Fresh and delicious! - Edit

I just discovered this place today. My friend and I were walking to visit another friend where he works, and she had just asked if it was possible to find vegan ice cream in Athens. I said, no, not really, just in the bio shops. We turned a corner, and were confronted with a giant sign advertising vegan gelato so of course we went in!

There were several vegan flavors to choose from, including espresso, banana, strawberry, coconut, chocolate, and a fruit sorbet. I chose coconut and chocolate. My friend got strawberry (and non-vegan nutella). The fruit flavors are all made with fresh fruit. Both the coconut and strawberry tasted like the actual fruits, not that sort of fake ice creamy-flavor one can usually expect. The chocolate was also delicious.

The service was fast and friendly, and it was reasonably priced (3.50 for 2 big scoops). It's also a convenient location for tourists since it's right near the Acropolis museum and several hotels and hostels. We will definitely be going back!

Pros: friendly staff, delicious, good location

Steeny888 09 Aug 2015 - Discovered this place by accident walking around Athens in the evening. The shop keeper was amazing and explained how the gelato was always vegan and that they just got signs when they realized it was in demand. He said that adding milk to the fruit gelato ruins the taste and that the dark chocolate and espresso wouldn't be if they added it. I had the espresso and a spoon of the fig. The fig tasted exactly like figs. The espresso was so creamy and rich! A++
