A historical retrospect!
The traditional Greek coffee shop is an old institution of the Greek society. At first, it was dedicated almost exclusively to men. It is a place of gathering for card games, sports and politics talk and of course, tasting Greek coffee, handmade sweets and tasty appetizers to accompany your wine and raki.
A loud and alive place, where everything is in movement, noise from chatting and disagreements, but also a place to reminisce about the old times.
Our coffee shop during the winter!
Our coffee house
«In our village’s coffee shop, with the wood burning stove, the traditional delights, the sweet smelling coffee and the daily chats…»
….are certainly vivid images for the elders and stories for the younger and it describes perfectly our own little coffee shop “Η ωραία Κρήτη”.
Wooden chairs and corresponding tables, heat from the stove, sweet and salty tastes for merrymakers «μερακλήδες» as we call them. The complimentary food and drinks of our menu are made with pure ingredients and always served with a smile at exceptionally low prices!
…and during the summer
The same warm and quaint atmosphere, is maintained during the summer as well, where we transfer in the coffee shop’s patio. The briskness and the shadow offered by the trees in combination with the calm and the sounds of nature, constitute Arolithos the ideal countryside getaway, where the visitors can enjoy their favorite beverage along with local handmade products!
