“Dreamy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

A place of exceptional beauty to rest your soul in. I could spend everyday here and still there would be something new to gaze upon, weather that be the owners wonderful collection of antiques and oddities or the sprawling Eden below.

“A haven of eccentric passionate beauty. Please visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

We happened upon this cafe almost by accident. The beauty of this place is the owner who doesn't over market - relying on wom publicity. So please visit. The hospitality is unfalting. The coffee is divine. The ambience will lose you in a bygone era.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a great little coffee shop to relax in. The coffee shop has lovely outside seating and is incredibly pretty. Do stop off here, it's lovely. The owner has all sorts of collections there, that are really interesting.

“Perfect drinking spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We visited this little shop/bar cafe on a few occasions during our weeks stay, we loved the nice sea view and the drink selection was good which they kindly served with some nuts and olives. Both father and son who worked/owned there were very friendly they recommended lizas grill to us over the road where we had a nice meal. Many thanks

“Authentic place to savour greek village life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

This is not a restaurant, but an authentic Greek village shop/cafe/Tea room. Situated beneath the giant plane tree in the middle of Lourdas village. An ideal place to rest on the journey from beach to restaurants and hotels. The owner - Thornton - is a Welsh man married to a Kefalonian who has lived in the village for many years with his family, he has extensive knowledge of the area and of Kefalonian life and traditions.
The view from the cafe balcony is one of the best on the island.No food but enjoy alcoholic/non alcoholic drinks or a proper pot of tea!
