“Amazing Desserts and View”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stopped here multiple times during our 6 day trip to Santorini. Twice we enjoyed a seat on the patio with a beautiful view of the caldera, and twice we got some desserts to go to eat at our hotel. If you get them to go they are much cheaper. Their iced lattes were yummy, too!

“Foodies will not be dissappointed!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

If you want delicious, authentic Greek dessert with an amazing view, this is the place to come. It had the best baklava I had all holiday and the service was very friendly. It located right on the main thoroughfare of Oia, which is surprising considering the quality available. The dessert portions are quite big and the iced coffee is just as it should be, cold and refreshing. I can also highly recommend the galaktobureko, a filo pastry dessert with a sweet, creamy filling. Very authentic and really tasty. The view from the terrace overlooks the Caldera and you can see Fira on the cliffs across the water turn rosy pink as the sun sets. We chose to eat here at sunset (when it was quieter, because everyone makes their way to the end of the town for the view). Although you cannot see the sun go down from here, it's certainly a sight to behold all the same, particularly with a forkful of sweet baklava in your mouth. :)

“Great after dinner spot”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We'd spotted this place in the week and all the dessert had looked amazing. In the end we actually went for a vin santo and dessert after dinner, the kataifi was gorgeous. The vin santos were a bit small for the money, which was the only disappointment. I think this would be a good spot for breakfast as you look down over those iconic church tops toward the castle.

“Delicious cake, not sickly sweet”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

I love my cakes but at many places they make them sickly sweet that leaves a furry feeling in my mouth. The tiramisu cake and chocolate mascarpone cake we tried last night where beautiful. The tiramisu was lighter that the original and therefore very enjoyable. The chocolate cake was wonderfully rich without being overly sweet. Yumm yumm, going back soon for breakfast! The prices are very good at EUR5.80 for 2x pieces.
