WHAT WE DO

In the period from October 2013 to December 2015 the Myrtillo cafe and arts centre was housed in rented premises in Neo Iraklio, Attica, in October 28thSquare.

There, under difficult and testing circumstances, the newly-founded enterprise commenced its project to train vulnerable young people and integrate them in the labour market.

After two years of sustained effort, we succeeded in gaining the general support of the wider community.

In February 2016, the Municipality of Athens, in recognition of our work, gave us two of the buildings in the KAPAPS Park for our business, cultural and socially-oriented activities.

This generous gift imposes on us an obligation to prove ourselves worthy of the confidence shown in us by Municipality of Athens.

What does our Cafeteria and Arts Centre do?
 
A. Food and Drink
 
Beverages:
At Myrtillo you can enjoy UTOPIA gourmet coffee of all kinds, various chocolate drinks and a wide range of teas, beers and alcoholic drinks, wines (Greek and non-Greek) and local drinks, such as raki and tsipouro, and our own rakomelo and liqueurs, as well as and soft drinks, fresh juices etc.
 
Food:
Most of our food is home-made using pure and generally organic ingredients:
  • Light meals such as our Cretan Plate with a selection of fine cheeses and cold meats
  • Homemade Pies (Sfakian Cheese pies and Fennel pies)
  • Sandwiches, baguettes and bruschetta (inspired by and named after our employees!)
  • Special dishes for vegetarians
  • Homemade desserts, various kinds of cake, tiramisu, chocolate sweets, and halva, as well as a range of ice creams.
Our products are served all day, and also during our special events. They are also available as a catering menu for group events held at Myrtillo.

The café is open daily from 9 am-11 pm, but may remain open later for special events.
 
II. EVENTS
 
We arrange on a daily basis events of all kinds, such as seminars, conferences, book presentations, theatrical performances, concerts, exhibitions, parties, anniversaries, celebrations, bazaars, small festivals (in the outdoor area and in the park).

In the three years since we opened, we have staged over 200 events.

We can accommodate up to 130 people and have the equipment required for most needs (an audio system, screen, projector, etc.).

The main area is non-smoking, but there is a specially designed adjoining area for smokers.

Our courtyard area is located within the lush green KAPAPS park, which includes a children's playground, pedestrian pathways and lending libraries for children. All in all, it is an oasis for children and adults in the heart of Athens beneath the bright Attic sky!
