Trendy place for drinks
Main Street Cafe is a modern and classy decorated bar/cafe on the main street of Skiathos that serve small dishes such as baked potato and club sandwich. It is popular among tourists as well as locals. They have a DJ and in the evening, they pump up the music and people come there for a drink. They play chill-out music in the afternoon and house/funky house at night. They have the coolest bathroom on the island. It is also a great place for people-watching. The drinks are excellent but quite expensive at 8 euros. The Mojito is a winner!
We shared a Main Street club sandwich, a new edition of the regular club sandwich -> cream cheese, sun-dried tomato, turkey.. with fries. It was quite good, but the french fries were soft (bad). We also shared a platter with finger-food, such as mozzarella sticks(yum) and fried mushrooms (weird)..the chicken wings were too spicy and burning hot.. Go there for drinks or maybe the club sandwich (I noticed the waitress eating a baked potato for lunch so that's probably a safe choice!)..
"A beautiful place"
This was my fifth time to the beautiful island of Skiathos. It is one of the Sporades, much busier than the other 2 islands Skopolos and Assonisos. I first went to Skiathos in 1988 & 1989, having given it a 9 year break curiosty got the better of me,my husband Neil, & I packed our bags for 1 week Sept 98 and off we went. Although the streets had become more commercialised Skiathos had not lost that good feeling. There are lots of Beautiful
restaurants to name a few the Jailhouse which is situated next to the old harbour, the Windmill and Asprolithos are just a handful of the beautiful places to eat delicious food. There are boats that leave the harbour daily at 10 am onwards to many of the 65 beaches along the Skiathos coast line. One of my favourite beaches is Achalladies, there is a water taxi from the old harbour for about 1 euro taking you directly onto the beach or you can get on a bus from the town get off at bus stop 9 or 10, there is a fairly steep downwards hill to the beach. One of the highlights for me is the Taverna Pergiali situated on the left of the beach possibly the best pizza in the world, swilled down with a jug of house wine (perfect)
