Best Cafe in Greece
Cofee shops are very common in Greece. Drinking a coffee is part of the tradition in this country. In the afternoon and during the weekends, people go to the coffee shops to meet with friends and enjoy long hours there. The most popular coffee for young people is the "freddo", while the elderly prefer the traditional Greek coffee (ellinikos) or the "frappe".
In summer, coffee shops are the best places for locals and tourists to enjoy a cold coffee or a refreshing drink. Cafeterias are found almost anywhere in the country: at beaches, central squares, side streets, even coffee stops are seen in motor roads.
The traditional coffee place in Greece is the kafenion that you usually see in the village squares. These kafenions are mostly frequented by pensioners who drink Greek coffee, chat over politics and play cards or backgammon. These places are great to enjoy the Greek rural life and taste homemade spoon sweets.
