We ate breakfast here five times during our seven night stay in Elounda. A full English breakfast was a sensible price at 6.5 Euros. The owner/waiter was able to adjust the choice eg - poached eggs instead of fried as well as proper English bacon....More

Lovely place to stop for a drink and people watch either though the day or in the evening. They have TV showing sporting activities (not that I'm interested). Friendly staff and a good spot.
