At least three people were involved in the attack, with two using automatic weapons and a third throwing the grenade, which failed to explode, before making their escape, police said.
No one was injured in the incident, in the western suburb of Korydallos.
Police say they suspect Greece's most violent guerrilla group, the left-wing Revolutionary Struggle.
"About 16 9-millimeter shell casings, probably from an MP5 automatic weapon, were found and are being examined at the lab," a police official said. "The incident is being investigated by the counter-terrorism police."
Police also said that a phone call was made to daily Ta Nea newspaper soon after the attacks with the caller claiming
responsibility on behalf of Revolutionary Struggle, but they could not immediately confirm its validity.
Footage from closed circuit television cameras in the area is being checked.
The incident occurred one month after a policeman was seriously wounded when police were attacked with semi-automatic weapons in central Athens.
That attack took place in the area where the killing of a 15-year-old boy by a policeman on December 6 sparked the worst riots
in Greece for decades. Revolutionary Struggle claimed responsibility for the attack.
After the capture of the November 17 leftist guerrilla group in 2002, Revolutionary Struggle emerged and launched a series of attacks that included a rocket-propelled grenade strike against the US embassy in Athens in January 2007.
