Stopped for a snack one afternoon. Picked up baklava and almond cookies. Both were very nice. We took some photos of the old wood burning oven. Staff were polite and attentive. Nice place to rest for feet and have something sweet.

This place is not to be missed when in Mykonos. The food is so fresh and tasty and we recommend the frappe's to go with it. Hidden gem

Came across this place on a hot afternoon. Really tranquil and gentle place to be. Lovely sweet snacks and great coffee.

It’s down some steps - sign and entrance weren't particularly obvious, so you can easily miss it – and you would find a hidden gem. It is a lovely family business with great breads, cookies and pastries. In the morning, you can watch Gioras baking...More
