Very good food!!
A local gem
I really like this place. The people are so nice, and they have baklava. Good baklava is so hard to find.
Best place in Brookline for tasty pastries and a relaxing Cafe vibe.
My favorite dessert spot for many years. I only wish they would finally expand the menu
Great gelato. Great service. Cannoli had a weird filling, though. Sorry guys. We enjoyed our visit, can but Modern Pastry still has the best cannoli.
I love it!!!!! ♥️
Great smoothie from fresh fruits! Black currant sorbet is great too - if you like unsweetened
Very simple inside but baked goods are so so delicious. They also have nice coffee and gelato.
I love it here. Quality food, baked goods, coffee & sweets. Definitely would recommend for lunch
The best place around for European pastries. Cakes are so delicious... You can enjoy small pieces right here in the cafe and order any event cake like birthday or wedding.

It's a great place to have a nice conversation. The biscuits and the desserts are just awesome.
Excellent food. Best pastries ever. Friendly service. Will most definitely be back. Their Brookline location is fantastic as well.
One of my favorite cafes around. Lots of seating for hanging out or getting work done. Parking isn't that bad, there's wifi, and they gave great hours. What more could you ask for? Oh and their cakes are delicious More...
Friendliest staff & tasty treats, will visit again.
Love their croissants! Not so much into sweets but everyone seems happy ordering and enjoying them.
Athan's offers an awesome selection of pastry and cookies, and a wonderful staff!
It’s a decent bakery. Interior improvements needed but it can be seen ok too depending on what one can think. Good to visit if you want something different. Nothing much to complain. Seems like people in the town like this place. More...
Great little place, I'd call it a hidden gem. They have the BEST full size cakes to take home, and have little ones if you want something for yourself. Really delicious pastries and a cafe part with good coffee and tea. Over all would recommend to anyone and everyone. More...
The atmosphere is cool but it's typically packed and hard to get sitting. Pastries are hit or miss and they are pricey, but I come back because it's open late and they have diverse music.
Top notch service and coffee. Gladis is irreplaceable - a wonderful lady. Many thanks.
They have so many amazing treats: gelato and cookies and pastries, and the food menu has so many things I can’t wait to try. Breakfast and dinner all day makes me happy. More...
This is a good place for reading, working on your computer, talking with a friend. The decor is very modern and spacious. The baked goods are way better than Daniel's Bakery next door, but are too pricey. Mirror Cafe down the street has just as awesome baked goods for a cheaper price. Mirror Cafe's food is more mainstream American, while Athan's is trendy modern and more creative culinarily. Athan's and Cafe Nation are your best bets on Washington for just sitting to read or work; both are pricey, but unlike a Starbucks for example, there is almost always a place to sit at both places. Another good place to read on Washington Street is Cafe Nero, about 3 blocks to the east of Athan's; but (surprise!) that's pricey too. More...
This bakery makes some of the best pastries, cookies, cakes, and other sweet wonders that I have tasted in my life. It is next to impossible to walk out without buying something. In fact, I usually try to avoid it because inevitably I will be buying yet another piece of baklava home. More...
One of the best dessert places in Boston, possibly the best. Of course, the original store in Brookline is also good, but this spot is less crowded. The cakes are to die for, even if a bit too sweet. More...
Nice and wonderful folks. Their Lentil soup is the best I ever had. I wish they have it every day of the week. Great and healthy ingredients...
I had only visited the sister store a few times and saw that everything is made on premises, even the coffee is roasted there. This translates to great quality and freshness. The Brookline store, while smaller, has a great location, a corner spot for people watching while enjoying a cup of Coffee and a delicious pastry. Great selection of cakes and pastries. The baklava as authentic as it gets. Highly recommended! More...
Great food and service. Love the eggs Benedict and the omelets. From the sweets definitely recommend the bolero.
Good coffee and desert. I didn’t give a five star because they really need to fix their dishwasher and use mugs instead of paper cups. I come here not Starbucks next door because of the classy European feeling. Coffee in paper cups just ruins everything. More...
I just wish I had more time to taste everything in the shop! Oh, my!
International clientele - several languages being spoken. Like the art on the walls. My lemon mousse brought it down, it was NOT tart (I like lip-puckering tartness), but Ian thought the eclair and cappuccino were good. I’ll have something else next time... More...
Who wouldn’t give Athens at least four stars if not five. Always a fabulous selection of desserts and sweet treats. Fantastic coffee, cappuccino and teas. Very busy on the weekends. Still, a fabulous place in Brookline offering some of the most delicious desserts you’ll find in the area. Highly recommend. More...
Delicious baked goods
The almond croissants are an event! This was one of my secret study spots in grad school. Definitely a fav!
All you need is the baklava cupcakes, I think you have to pre-order them but they are the best thing EVER.
Delicious food & coffee. Highly recommend this hidden gem!
I love athans!!!!! My favorite desert is the two color pastry☺️☺️☺️☺️
Amazingly pastries and desserts! Always worth a visit.
Delicious breakfast, dinner & pastries! All day breakfast.
Really great place for any tea and sugary goods lovers!!
My favorite neighborhood cafe-so much a regular they already know what to prepare when I walk through the door! Yummy rice pudding and other goodies
a lovely, quaint bakery that serves some of the tasties treats (bread) and things in brookline. i know that this is THE BEST of THE BEST of the bakeries in brookline. it's ABSOLUTELY tasty!
Was great food service can be a bit behind at times when super busy but always delicious and nice servers
Great place, great people! Breakfast, lunch or just for a coffee with these amazing greek pastry (and not only) delicious temptations, one can always find what he wants!
