Called in for last-minute hot drinks before our trip to the airport on a Sun morning. We had 2 Viennese coffees and 2 Hot Chocolates (good sized cup!) - €10. Not boiling hot, just the right temperature. Friendly and efficient service. Good to visit any time of the day - they serve breakfast, snacks, hot drinks and alcohol. Relaxed feel... More

Used it for lunch after golf - food and wine excellent, as was the ice cream! Service was friendly and efficient. Lovely views and a good place for a pre-dinner drink to watch the world go by. Used by locals and tourists alike

We played golf and went to this cafe for a latte coffee and snack afterwards. On other days we just stopped had coffee and a snack watched the world go by and went for walk along the beach. Friendly service and good coffee. I shall miss the afternoon ciabatta chips and coffee when I go back to work!

Ionis Cafe is the best on the beach. The wifi is free, and the owner is so friendly! She remembered my cafe order the previous day with a smile.

If anyone has to write a review about this café, it should be me.... For eight months I felt welcome, was served my coffee with a smile and had the delight of the mezedes, the club sandwiches and the stragiatella ice creams. Oh, they all were so good. Being around in tourism for more than 40 seasons... This was the... More

A really well designed and decorated café by the seaside. Warm inside out with good service and English speaking waiters.

Sat next to the beach with a cappuccino and Americano between thunderstorms. Was so nice we ordered another round plus a savoury crepe for good measure (feta, tomato, pepper, olive). Came to €15 in total. Friendly and efficient service by a lovely lady. Laid back atmosphere. Nice decor.
