Great outdoor place for evening coffee and gelato or crepes. Free Wifi - covered dining. Owner is very friendly. Weird how all the expats hang out together. More should come here. Right next to the Atenas town center and plaza.

Really good value/price coffee bar; I have been there twice, both were really good. The coffee is good, the pizza is tasty and the sandwich is fine. The price is so good if you see the quality of the products, I strongly recommend to make a stop and relax with a cup of coffee

My family and I have been to Gelly's 3 times this week. The owner is always there and is a very personable man. The gelato is great and so are the nachos. I am sure everything else on the menu is great too and I am sure we will find out over the next month or so. There is free... More

The crepes are fantastic and the service was second to none. We learned that the owner is also a magician and he impressed my kids with a few magic tricks. Highly recommended.

In addition, Gelly's is a great place to hang-out and watch people. The dining area is elevated so it's great for watching people on the street and in... More

I love Gelly's for cappuccino, gelato, and people watching from its elevated position across from the park. The staff is friendly too. I have yet to try anything off the menu aside from coffee or gelato, but keep going back because both of those are so good.
