Vivid history of the city

AXILLEION CAFE BAR

It all began in 1963 when the owners Emannouel and Laskaris Antoniadis opened 'Axilleion' and, following a honeymoon of the one of the owners on Corfu island, named it after the original Axilleion palace. From there on, 'Axilleion' has been directly linked with the history and entertainment of Thessaloniki.

Every since the '90s there is no Thessaloniki resident that hasn't visited 'Axilleion', since it has been and continues to be a central entertainment hub for over 5 decades, thus becoming a 'second home' for all Thessalonisians. During these decades, 'Axilleion' has evolved through refreshing changes, with continuous investments in its staff and by offering high quality services and products.

Maintaining our youthful character and a positive look towards the future, we are here and continue to be for old and new customers, offering a smile and the courtesy that has distinguished us for so many years...

THE BEST COFFEE

Espresso

Our familiar and, lately particularly beloved in Greece, espresso is a strong black coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. It's slightly thick, marked with a golden-brown dollop of steamed milk and foam.

Cappuccino

This well known coffee has become our ....national drink. Authentic, true cappuccino, with a dark, rich espresso under a smoothed and stretched layer of thick foam. This velvety drink can even be served as a dessert, thanks to its reach complex flavor.

Café Mocha (Mochachino)

This is a cappuccino or caffè latte topped with chocolate or cocoa syrup. Similar to cappuccino, you can sprinkle a little bit of cocoa or cinnamon on the top. Its garniture of whipped cream adds to its extraordinary flavor.
