A tribute to the great Mercouri, this cafe-bar is decorated with portraits of the actress and politician who lobbied for the repatriation of the missing Parthenon marbles. Mercouri's most famous for the film Never on Sunday, but in fact that's a great day to come, when it's very busy and prime outdoor seats offer a view of the Plaka parade.
