Kefalos Old Town - the original cafe!
We took the recommendations from elsewhere and went in search of the old man and his small bakery come café.
After much exploring of back streets I looked up a small street and saw a man stood outside a shop and sure enough it was him. As we approached he launched into his patter of “vanille, chocolate, mocha gateaux, éclairs...” and beckoned us into his cafe.
We stepped into his empty café and it was like stepping back 40 years in time. The shop probably hasn’t changed much in that time. We ordered coffee and cake with a biscuit for our youngest child. He delighted in bringing two biscuits, explaining that the second was a present from him.
Soon enough aided and abetted by us, he had enticed another couple in, and then a third couple. Even while he is taking your money he is still darting out of the café to speak to those passing, not wanting to miss an opportunity! Priceless.
The obligatory handshakes were given as we left, and he was pleased to pose for a photo with our two girls.
