Reviewed 2 June 2016

This cafe is hidden in the gardens of Chania. It is well worth a visit. We were the only tourists there. The place was filled with locals. It is a large cafe - so no problem with seating, but cafe doesn't really describe it. The building is very elegant, We had coffee and toast - all good. The toilets are the most ornate I've ever seen and are very clean.

This has to be the most beautiful cafe that I have ever been in....we spent Christmas Eve here and had waffles and ice cream, hot chocolate and tea.It was beautiful, quaint and peaceful. Loved it and will definitely return.

The oldest cafe in Crete 1870. In the winter there is a welcoming fire. Traditional dark mahogany Cretan style cafe. Warm welcoming ambience. Unfortunately it is only for coffees, snacks and light lunches. A perfect place to meet friends. Attractive Wc downstairs with attractive orange logo wash cloths. Good filter coffee
Outside area is large so good for large groups. Terrace area nice. Full of locals. Children's play area. Take your camera. English spoken. Large Xmas decorated indoors giving a festive feel. Highly recommended.

My wife and I have been going here for over 20 years. The owner has spent a lot of time keeping the atmosphere original and authentic. The Greek coffees are particularly good, served in the copper pots they were brewed in so you may serve it yourself. The goods served and service are consistant each time. I noticed in some reviews they mentioned slow service, this is Greece, sit back, relax and enjoy the experience. Highly recommend this establishment and the culture it is trying to preserve.

Great place for a coffee or drink and light snack while shopping in Chania. The cafe dates back over 70 years, has loads of atmosphere and classic styling. The owner has spent lots of time keeping the retro styling with many antiques and other memophilia. There are things to keep the kids occupied and being located in the public garden makes it picturesque and shady on summer. Highly recommend it.
