Great spot in Fira, excellent outdoor area, attentive and friendly service and nice food. We popped in by chance and will definitely head back. Food is reasonably priced and the coffee is good.

We briefly stopped in at the end of a 3 hour photography walk from Oia to share an omelette and grab an ice coffee. 6 Euro for a fairly decent sized omelette and 2.50 for an iced coffee! Great prices, nice venue and free wifi. The menu looked real good so we will head back as we are moving to Fira from Oia in the next couple of days. Service was great too!

If you look past the unfriendly sour looking women behind the counter which gives you the feeling you should apologize for bothering her with an order as she would much rather have a smoke than serve you, this cafe offers good coffee, free wifi and a nice courtyard to give your feet a rest and your body a break from the scoring sun and hectic town crowded with tourists. It seems aegle operates on the principle that service doesn't matter as tourists come and go anyways. Well, let me assure you: we shall walk the extra mile to find good coffee elsewhere for the rest of our stay in fira.

This is our second visit to Aegle Cafe in Fira. What a delightful oasis for a needed break from the crowds. We sat in the delightful outdoor terrace beautifully furnished. Enjoy a delicious lunch - all Greek - or coffee and log on to the Wifi! We enjoyed everything, including the authentic tsipouro - much better than ouzo. Our accommodating waitress even wrote down the brand for us and gave us directions to the store where we can purchase.

A few houses away from the Orthodox Cathedral, at the beginning of the famous "Gold Street", there is an "Illy"-café: 1.50 euro for an espresso (at the counter of course). Next to it is a wintergardenlike sandwich bar. Mainly white furniture with lots of plants. Very refreshing and relaxing.

Besides sandwiches you can order one of the superb salades and a very good glass of wine at moderate prices. Everything is served with a lovely smile.
 Sorry we've missed it our first day in Firà, but of course we went back the next day.
