Sought this place out because of the good reviews and we were craving some sweets and coffee. The coffee was nothing special, but not bad either. We had an americano and an iced coffee. A little weak, but i think that's standard for the country. The main reason we went was for the baklava. We got the chocolate covered baklava and asked it was was still crispy despite the chocolate. They said yes and served it up with a fork and knife. The initial bite had no crisp and was completely soggy. I've had baklava after it's been soaked in honey for a week and it's still crispy. So I'm not sure what they did or how old this was. We informed them about the lack of crisp and they switched it out with a regular baklava. Only the top single layer was slightly crisp on the edges. Towards the bottom half, you could see about 40-60 sheets of dough that were never separated. Additionally, there were multiple sugar crystals formed. This explained why it was overly sweet. They add sugar instead of just honey. I have eaten hundreds of baklava in my life. This was close to the worst one. Maybe the ice cream / gelato is better...

We discovered this while walking around the streets of Fira one evening. They sell over 60 flavours of ice cream and there are kinds of weird and wonderful flavours including baklava, fig, rose, and fifty shades of grey. Make sure you grab an ice cream from here when you're in Fira. And they let you try before you buy too!

So many delicious flavours of ice cream - I wish I had more time to try them all! I tried coffee, passion fruit , yoghurt & honey and caramel - all so yummy! Pricing is very reasonable too - 1 scoop is 2 euros (with or without a cone)

Being super fit and healthy I thought I'd treat myself to a cheat meal in Santorini. I kept walking past this place and saw the great variety of gelato flavors they had.

I wasn;t disappointed. The Ferraro Roche, fudge brownie, triple choc and nutella flavours were a dream! Loved eating this whilst watching the sun set.
