Where to start.. Location? Center of Skala (so you don't miss your boat), under a huge tree gives it the traditional Greek village vibe. Staff? Knowledgeable about the menu and the island alike, friendly and willing to accommodate requests. And, of course, the food -...traditionally prepared and served Greek coffee, souma, and delicious mezedes with an excellent value for money (everything was delicious, and the portions large enough that with 15 eur per person you walk away full).More

It's located in the heart of Skala - you can't miss it. We went to a few places on the square and I think this is my favourite (at least for breakfast!). The service was quick and the friendly. The food and drinks were great...- make sure you try the almond drink and the Greek style omelette!More

The hot spot of Skala in terms of place and taste. Excellent coffee together with a variety of choices for breakfast/ brunch. It was a surprise for us to also have dinner on our last day on the island ( best way to say goodbye)....Very polite stuff and Yiannis the owner was also always happy to serve us.More

Visited it 3 times this time and every time was excellent! The soutzoukakia (red meatballs), cheese pie with rose sugar, zucchini and meat balls were all top taste for a Greek! Must visit for coffee and mezedes (snacks)More

For some reason, the chicest people gather here. Might be tricky to find a table (no reservations) but once you do, it is worth it. Historical kafeneio, smiley service, tasty food, excellent coffee. Had heard complaints about delays in service but didn’t experience it ourselves.More

We were lucky enough to visit this place on the first of our trip and we have been coming back every single day. By far the best coffee on the island so if you are a coffee liver this is a no-miss. Traditional Greek flavors,...modern design, very welcoming staff and excellent location - what more can you ask for :)More

We went there for coffee and desserts. It has a very interesting menu. I got an amazing freshly squeezed juice, which was made to my liking. My partner got Greek coffee with a hint of rosewater. We both got traditional Greek sweets called “glyka tou...koutaliou” and both of them were amazing. The service was excellent and the environment very nice. You should definitely visit it.More
