Welcome to the Kafeneio Kefalas Apokoronas in sunny Crete.
The kefalas kafeneio is a traditional kafeneion run by Manolis Karampinakis (pictured) who has always lived in Kefalas.
As Kr Karampinakis explains, the building started as a shoemaker business in 1947, and then c.1952, it became the kafeneion. The original name for the kafeneion was “παντοπωλείο” which roughly translates in English to “wide-narrow”. This is a reference to the road intersection directly outside his kafe neio.
Manolis is the proprietor and patron for the Kefalas Kafeneio, and a warm welcome is always available to all customers in both Greek and English.
