This is a nice place to stop for a coffee break or snack food. There's fast and friendly service, so you don't need to wait for any extra time.

Great place to enjoy a light breakfast and watch the ferry departing or to enjoy a late night coffee and people watch. In addition the adjoining bakery has an excellent selection of breads and local treats.

What a great location for a coffee and patisserie! But also pastries, milkshakes and sandwiches. You name it, the Vakakis family serves you with the finest. Just stop there at least for their amazing icecream!

Great family-run place to sit down for a coffee, light snacks or lunch by the waterfront in Palaiochora. The prices and service are very friendly. Also try a variety of home-baked goods and breads.

We buy our bread, cheesepies, kaseropitas, croissants and kalitsounia for our breakfast. They all taste ok, nothing special though. Service is really good and friendly. The view is great- enjoy the sun and the sea view from their veranda, while drinking your freddo!

Nice place for very good cold drinks. Had savourt pancakes (quite ok) and club sandwich (quite ok too but should save for visits to UK). I would come again but would rather try a salad and looks like they make good coffee.

as good as it gets for a cafe - watch the world go by and enjoy the hustle of Greek ferry pastries and ice creams are terrific - yogurt and honey a joy
