The setting is brilliant - uninterrupted views over the chora, with a laid back bar vibe in the evening. We only went for dessert in the evening - a delicious rich chocolate cake with rum (there was a chocolate and pink perppercorn version too). Choice is limited but the quality high

This is a small cafe and pastry shop in the island of Astypalaia. It is located near the wind mills square, a bit off the heel.
It has a lovely garden where you can seat and relax watching the castle of the island and enjoy a bit of the sunset.
During day time, although the existence of some big trees, you will suffer from the sun. On the morning some breakfast is served but its strong point is the sweets and pastries. Some of them seem to be hand made.
We visited twice, once at late night and we chose a souffle au chocolat with a ball of strawberry ice cream and a sweet with apple and cream. Then we went on a morning for breakfast. I got some olive bread with tomatos and a boiled egg. I can not complain about the tastes', both times I was satisfied, although nothing seemed exceptional.
However, both times the portions were tiny and given the fact that we paid 7,5 euros for the souffle with the ice-cream and 5,5 euros for my tiny breakfast I consider the place a royal rip off. On the other hand the view is rewarding and as such I would suggest to visit once and around the sunset time and taste their sweets.
But certainly there are far more better and economical places in the island to hang there.
