We sampled three desserts from the bakery. Each was simply wonderful. This is the only bakery to go to in Oia!

This perfectly located place offers unobstructed view to the Caldera making you feel relaxed. You can rest in the terrace and enjoy a variety of hot and cold drinks and other meals. I myself found the brioche with chocolate a great companion with my coffee. The waiter is a nice guy ready to serve and he is knowledgeable. All in... More

Great selection. Ohhh what to choose what to choose!!! So many lovely cakes and desserts!!!! Finally opted for the chocolate and banana crepe with a side of vanilla ice cream. I was not disappointed. Best ever crepe. Great big portion. But I could have eaten more as it was just so delicious. Hubby really enjoyed a slice of caramel cake... More

I've been coming here for years. It's a must stop for anyone with a sweet tooth. If you're stopping in for breakfast, you will be disappointed unless your breakfast is mainly cake and pie. :) Highly recommend the Milkl Pie and Mille Feuille.

This is a truly lovely place with delicious cakes. The location is great and it offers a wonderful view. The staff are friendly, there was a particularly nice and polite waiter one evening who treated all guests with respect. It's quite pricey though but I suppose that's what you find in the center of the charming and beautiful Oia. The... More

Drinks, especially pop, juice, etc. are very high, although this does seem to be common across many of the Greek islands. The coffee was OK and also quite expensive. However, we did get a seat on the upper balcony right by the view over the bay which is amazing. I can't think of any restaurant/café where I have had a... More

Stopped in for a quick take-out pastries. The cherry cheesecake and mascarpone chocolate cake was outstanding. Well worth a quick stop. You can eat upstairs also, but we did the takeout route.

Best baklava I've ever tasted. Try it with an ice-cream ball (Vanilla) to balance the taste of the sweet Baklava. Baclava was 5.80 and the ice cream ball was 2.20 thus a total of 8 euros. The portion was big and for me was worth the price.

Had frape and pistachio ice cream; coffee tasted alright but ice cream tasted artificial. It appears that patronage is not required to use the restrooms.

We stopped here for a nice cold drink as it was so hot under the sun. We sort of could see the lovely patio through the terrace and made a beeline and got a perfect table just as another family was leaving. Regretfully we did not try the pastries but it is a perfect spot to sit and relax in... More
