Philos Athens is a space where you can find selected design objects and also relax, socialize and be inspired.
This space is a destination that offers visitors the possibility to pass their day within, buy objects, taste something from the cafe, see an exhibition or just take a shopping break while walking 'round Athens.
Philos Athens is a lifestyle store on central Solonos Street, created as a meeting point for people who want to discover the philosophy of Philos Athens and see the objects on show. The various objects are selected for their timeless value and design. At Philos Athens, visitors can enjoy a complete food and design experience on the various levels of the space.

On the ground floor, at the restaurant-cafe, you can enjoy delicious specialties and see the fashion objects, accessories and clothing. The first floor is the continuation of the commercial part, and the second floor will host photography exhibitions from March 2015 onwards. The attic will begin functioning in the coming spring.
The building where Philos Athens is located was the main inspiration for this project. It is a neoclassical house which was built in 1937 by businessman and collector E. Koutlidis, and it was later renovated with absolute respect to its architecture and history.
Eggs play a central role on the original menu, together with other imaginative quick yet nutritious food. Surprise dishes are prepared daily to stimulate the senses and bring to mind memories of nurturing tastes. Poached eggs, scrambled eggs with smoked pork, French sandwiches with bulgur and citrus fruit, pancakes with delicious fillings – try them all at Philos Athens.
Café Philos Athens offers a balanced and healthy breakfast/lunch every day and a selection of delicious sharing platters to accompany with a glass of wine or a rich, flavored afternoon coffee. The savory tarts in various interesting tastes are a must, as well as the warm, nourishing soups.
At Philos, you can also find a range of care products for face, hair and body, as well as perfumes. And in the sector of apparel, accessories and shoes, you can view emerging brands or recognized designers and hand-picked goods.
Inspired everyday objects include bags, backpacks, gloves, t-shirts, enamelware and many more carefully selected items to buy for yourself or for a gift. Pantone Colorwear, Bacsac, Sandqvist, Falcon, Suigeneric and Pendleton are some of the brands you can find at Philos Athens, which features quality goods with a twist.
