It's a cafeteria (coffee place) in the cetre of Heraklion Crete, in Lion's square. Although it has a big history, it's quality remains stable. Try the Bougatsa (a kind of pastry) with cream (for those with sweet tooth)or with cretan mitzithra (cretan cheese). Enjoy them...More

Loukomades were AMAZING! Very cute family working the restaurant trying very hard to maintain a picturesque and authentic atmosphere and experience for guests. The view is beautiful and we loved the opportunity to try some classic pastries!

The people serving are really fast and kind. The bougatsa was amazing with sugar and cinnamon and traveled me to my childhood. Really nostalgic tasty feeling. I also order a tasty homemade refreshment with local herbs. Very cool idea, i loved it. A must visit...More

At first everything was great. The man over there took the order he was really kind and smiling. The quality of the food is really good, but a bad and slow service makes it not to count. Waited 45 minutes for a chicken sandwich that...More

In the heart of Heraklion and on the lion square fountain where you sit and watch people pass by while you sip your coffee and have the delicious Bugatsa. My favorite is the one with cheese and honey and nuts on top. Also their crepe...More

It's one place you must visit! The best place to enjoy a mpougatsa (one of the best!) together with a cup of coffee (average, but not bad). Prices are good, considering the so special location.

Seemed to be the most popular restaurant at the lion fountain. Recommendation: The house savoury crepes are tasty, fairly large and wholesome fare.

We chose Fillosofies by the famous fountain...MOROZINI. We chose outside seating . We ordered loukamades and they were quite tasty. Friendly service and we were allowed to enjoy and experience Heraklion. Very crowded which provided a lot of people watching.
