We sat here for about an hour and had a lovely coffee and some crepes. I wanted to try the chocolate cake which is quite famous apparently but I was too full from lunch in Nostos, Mastichari. Well worth a visit for the desserts and the view of Kalymnos. A nice touch is that they have binoculars on the tables... More

After walking to the top of the village on the mountain top on a hot sunny very beautiful day, this watermill was very welcome for a rest and refreshment. They make their own lemonade which was absolutely delicious and the most refreshing drink ever. Just to sit in a pretty courtyard looking out at the amazing views sipping ice cold... More

I love cafés and I have visited a significant amount, especially in Greece. I have never seen such a lovely place! The lemonade and the chocolate pie was very good. The view and the decoration were exceptional. The owner painted all of the lovely decorations by hand with a friend and they give the place a wonderful atmosphere. You should... More

As you go up the hill to the church the Watermill is halfway up on your left. Any easy stroll. Set up in a tree shaded area with plenty of seating with a beautiful view out to the sea and the Islands of Kalimonos and Pserimos. Can recommend the home made lemon drink and also if you like cinnamon the... More

A really great place to relax and have a coffee, drink, or meal. The home made lemonade is really tasty and on a hot day very refreshing. The location is just stunning, especially at sunset. The business is run by two brothers who are really really nice guys and make you so welcome. A music visiting Zia.

We stopped off at the windmill cafe for home made Lemonade. The cafe attracted me in with its amazing array of lanterns hanging from the roof terrace and the spectacular views. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We loved the lemonade and found it to be reasonably priced. My children loved the tortoise and cats. I would love to... More
