The restaurant is a pleasant surprise. With its blue chairs, it really does remind you of Greece. The menu offers Greek dishes but also burgers and sandwiches. Not surprising, their cappuccino is excellent. Service, friendliness, and ambiance score top marks.

We have spent many good times under the trees enjoying light Greek café food. Hearty and informal. Good wines but also excellent milkshakes, we love the mezes and the yiros. Lazy and easy chats the other patrons.

CAFENIO has been a great experience for me. I spent a couple of days working from this little coffee shop and absolutely loved the vibe... great music and even better food! Try their Gyro Shwarma! The best in town!

Cafenio is a delicious Greek style restaurant. The food is divine and fresh, the service was great! You also have the option of sitting outside which is great! It's a must go to restaurant if passing through the area
