Peristeri evening before lockdown

November 29, 2020

Friday three weeks ago, a cool day, no sun, a gale blowing, a day for the Metro and the suburbs.

Tuesday bars, restaurants and coffee shops closed. Midnight night time curfew. Friday last day of freedom before lockdown on Saturday.

Plaka deserted, Peristeri by contrast full of life. People on the street, everywhere open, the restaurants open, though serving takeaway only.

A long orderly queue, social distancing for a bookshop. If England, it would have been for consumer crap.

Had I advised people where to go, with restaurants closed in Plaka, I would have said hop on the Metro and spend the evening in Peristeri, except with lockdown, would not have bene possible, as only able to go out for local exercise.

Places to visit, Cashew, Mind the Cup, Manor House.

After visiting Mind the Cup and a little wander down the street, I head to Manor House opposite.

On my last visit, Manor House sourced their coffee from Tarreso but did tell me they hoped to roast their own coffee.

Now they are roasting their own coffee.

I am made a cappuccino.

Then head to Peristeri Metro Station. Luckily not raining.

I looked in Manor House a couple of days ago. Today I returned.

A bar, outside seating, and to the rear coffee. There is a roof garden, but this I had no time to look at. On a shelf at the back, awards.

Music with a DJ from around eight. Open until three in the morning.

Whilst I was there, in walked Michalis Karagiannis, Greek latte art champion, No 2 world latte art champion, with a little dog. I asked and he kindly made me a cappuccino.

Coffee is sourced from Taresso, but soon they will be roasting their own coffee.

What I noticed, use of Aeropress, and used for tea not coffee.
