Earlier this month VeganTravel sent me to Greece to scope out the vegan scene in Athens. I also hopped over to Aegina Island for a few days to visit my friend Kat and see what local island life was all about.

  1. You MUST try AVIT just outside of Athens! Our family (myself, my husband, 13 yo daughter and 16 yo son) ate there this afternoon and spent much of the time we weren’t talking to the owner, trying to figure out how to plan the rest of our stay in Athens to maximize the number of times we can return to this restaurant. It is simply INCREDIBLE! Not only are the ingredients of the highest quality, the portions VERY large, the VALUE is fabulous, the dishes are CREATIVE while being familiar, the coffee is AMAZING, the owners are GENUINE… can’t say enough GOOD about them! Don’t visit Athens without making a trip to AVID! If possible, get there when you are hungry! It was only a 3 minute walk from the Tram station.
