The chocolate cake and the orange cake should not be missed! Decided to take some honey home for friends as well. Easy walk from our hotel. Recommend

Went here twice, should have gone all 4 days we stayed in Pollonia. Breakfasts made to order were amazing, then go for the daily pastries and homemade limoncello, smoothies, sandwiches…my mouth is watering just thinking of it. Shade in the back (with kitties) for breakfast...or lunch, and friendly, quick service in the bakery for takeaway. Walkable to anywhere in Pollonia.More

Have visited the cafe on the 26th of August to buy coffee to go and traditional products. Staff has been very friendly and polite. There is big variety of homemade products such as traditional sweets, herbs, alcoholic beverages. There is a beautiful yard to sit...outside and enjoy what ever you buy. Good job Kivotos to Gefseon team.More

Ran into this place by accident one morning on my hunt for a good coffee. What a surprise it was. The shop is filled with deliciousness. We only visited for breakfast and the courtyard is perfectly shaded to enjoy the great food. Don't miss this...place.More

On the map it looks a little out of the way, but it's super close to everything else in Pollonia. There is a parking lot nearby if needed. I saw this place on TripAdvisor before we went and was planning on going, but they were...closed - until the last day of our trip, June 1! We stopped by to pick up some food for lunch and then came by again in the evening to get that delicious chocolate cake and some other snacks. I wish we had been able to try more of the food and sit in the back garden, but we were out of time. Hopefully on the next visit!More

Amazing place for breakfast and deserts. We ended up going there daily because we liked it too much. A little peculiar system of self service since you order at the counter and take the things that are ready right away but get a remote numbered...buzzer to notify you to go and get when something needs preparing. Everything is suplied in delivery boxes so you can take them with you but the shop also has an amazing outdoor space beautifully decorated so you can sit and eat there. Food, desserts were amazing. First time that everything we tried in a shop was 4 to 5 star rating consistently. Dont forget to buy local traditional deserts which are amazing and can be given as gifts when you go back home!More

Absolutely delicious desserts in the cutest little shop. During our 8-night stay in Pollonia, we probably went here 5 different times. The garden behind the shop is beautiful, too. Don't miss your chance to try these desserts if you're on Milos!

I've been to Kivotos twice - once with my parents 2 years ago, and again this year with my two best friends. The first time I was completed in shock by how good the chocolate cake was, and this time it was even better than...I'd remembered. Everything else we tried was incredible as well, even my best friend who is "not a dessert person" was obsessed - just be prepared to have the best chocolate cake of your life. All the locals we spoke with said that they order their special occasion cakes from Kivotos. They have a new-ish coffee bar that they've added, and it's delicious, too!More

MUST try when in Pollonia. Sweet and savoury treats, local products, freddo espresso needs a bit of work though.. The lemon/raspberry cake was divine. Bread sticks really fresh, ladenia very good. Well done to the family and members running it.

We spent 17 days in Pollonia, Milos. Our kind host, Areti, from Anemoessa Studios - which by the way, is a great place to stay when in Milos, recommended us this place for breakfast. We came here every day (sometimes 2 times / per day)...to buy the delicious pies and sweets. Everything was so damn good! Tried other pies/ sweets on the island, but these are the best, we can assure you. Don't miss it!More

The chocolate pie was so good, that we had to back there 4 times in a stay of 3 days. Recommend. Coffee is also good and there are plenty of options available!

Very Nice garden, good breakfast and wide variety of products to bring home as a gastronomic souvenir. What was very very bad, at the point that We decided Not to come back, was the rudness of the people working there, treating you as a disturbing...element when asking info about the products (that were labeled only in Greek...) and even when asking them the bill. And all this, after we bought for an amount of almost 100 euros. I should have left all that products there.More

The food is fresh and delicious; we went there mainly to get take-away pies and other goodies for breakfast. Go there early to avoid queues.

The restaurant is closed now for the season so maybe the start of October. You can still buy in the shop and DIY, if you have facilities.
