European Café Culture has arrived in Boston. Athan's strives to provide our patrons with the quintessential café experience- steeped in artisan traditions, yet hip and modern; casual, yet elegant; always delicious. Whether it be a Parisian "boulangerie/patisserie", an Italian "patisserie", an eastern European "kaffehaus", or a Greek "zaharoplasteion", these temples of sweet escape are part of everyday life. Upon entering one of these venerable institutions, one is often struck by the charm of the interior, the convivial atmosphere, the compelling aromas, the noisy espresso machine, the myriad possibilities for indulgence...all this awaits you now, as well.

Athan's, Brookline is full of old world allure. The design's custom handwork is evident from the imported wood furnishings, the marble tables, to the wrought iron lighting.. Our French -style pastries, Italian gelato, Belgian chocolates and oriental baklava have found loyal followings here. Our gift items are unique and beautifully wrapped. We are excited that we will be able to offer a much-awaited expanded café seating area in the very near future.

Athans, Brighton is home to the impressive workshop where our delicacies are handmade. Recently, we have expanded the workshop site to include a full café/restaurant offering Mediterranean-inspired cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Complimenting the "workshop" theme, the space is striking and modern, with imported stainless steel pastry cases, soaring loft ceilings, white marble tables and soft coloring: a relaxed, beautiful setting to escape into.
