We just had an ice coffee and a relaxing time. It's worth to go there after or prior to a visit of Pyrgos.

When you find this hidden gem at the top of Pyrgos you won't want to leave. Fabulous views, relaxed vibe and lovely food and drinks. A wonderful discovery and visit.

Beautiful rooftop with a nice view. You can't see the sunset since it's behind Thirassia but the colors and view are amazing nevertheless. Good coffee and ice cream. A bit pricey.

We had some apps and drinks here the other day. Good prices for the view, great roof top seating and good food. Service was pretty good. Weather was windy and cold, but the view was still worth it.

It is a Coffee-Bar done with respect to the Greek tradition on the top of Pyrgos hill.We serve a selection of coffee, fresh fruit drinks, milk shakes, ice creams and desserts.Some appetizers and light food are available.Aperitifs and cocktails are our pride: Mr. Franco, the owner, has a collection of international awards for the quality of his drinks and for the style of his management.Warning! Because of its style and music (classical and retro only) Franco's Café is not addressed to everybody, but to people with a certain sensitivity.
