We visited this place twice on our holiday. Great food, some very traditional recipes that you don't always see on the menus. Tried the Kefalonian walnut cake there...yummy. Lovely welcoming staff and they always remember you when you return.

Used this café 3 times while on holiday in Skala. Once for breakfast and twice for lunches. Food is well presented, plentiful and certainly not over priced, quite the contrary. Friendly staff who were quite happy to chat to you even when the place was busy, which at lunchtimes it was, and with local people as well which I always... More
