Needed somewhere to sit down in a hurry as the heat was getting too much for me. Cafe Caretta is a street cafe on a corner. Ordered a frappe, milkshake and two slices of pie ( one spinach and the other chicken.) The pie slices were only 2 euro and 2.20 each - I couldn't believe it when I got the bill! I got a little turtle (caretta) shaped shortbread with my frappe too. I asked for my frappe strong and it was - just what I needed.
The waitress was a lovely woman. The Greek are such lovely, lovely people. Really recommend.

1100 in Zanti Town with 4 small children getting hot and tired. 30 minutes in Cafe Caretta and happiness was restored. Friendly staff really looked after the children and spoke good English. Milkshakes were a hit all round, our 4 year old couldn't get enough of the little butter biscuit people and the chocolate orange cake was demolished by the other children. We also had local cloudy lemonade, frappe coffee and I went savoury with a delicious Olive stick (I was so close to having the homemade chicken pie) Total bill €25. Perfect for a mid morning stop or family lunch.

I must recommend the 'bougatsa' a flakey pastry filled with a vanilla cream and dusted with cinnamon , the first time I've been served one pre cut into bite size pieces !

Find that bakery on a walk and get in touch with the owner, very nice couple running this bakery and they produce everything in front of you. If your lucky you can get some pasteries directly warm from the oven. Very tasty!

The best homemade pies made daily with fresh ingredients. A real delicious experience. A very friendly atmosphere. And don't forget to buy the caretta butter biscuits in a shape of a turtle, for your loved ones for home.
