"To Philosopheio" is a fresh respond to the existing old-fashion, university cafeterias that exist in Greek Universities. It is a university cafeteria inside the Philosophy Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with a vision to create a place that respects the university students and staff, by providing a modern environment and a quality break for everyone. Breaking all the stereotypes of the typical Greek university cafeteria, 9 months after its launch, “To Philosopheio” opened its second location.
