Friendly staff, great location by the sea, great coffe and comfortable chairs. My favourite cafe! If you come in the evening you can sit by the water and hear the waves.

Coffee - consistently good, day-after-day, and gigantic fruit salads in shady deckchairs by the sea. A real oasis in what is now a rather over-developed (and trashed) corner of Crete

Maybe it's a great place for breakfast but the club sandwich we had the night we arrived wasn't great. We didn't want a big meal and thought this would be a good option, bad decision even the fries were just ok.

We made this little place a regular lunchtime haunt where we enjoyed well-priced carafe of wine and a bit of lunch most days. We like people-watching, and there was always local people as well as visitors. The owners were sociable and pleasant.

Lovely, huge breakfast with plenty of choice. Staff very friendly and happy. Piles of toast came with breakfast. Crisps and fruit came with drinks/cocktails. A welcoming and fast service.

We visited Fracoises for brunch, and it was absolutely perfect. We had wonderful English and francoise breakfast, and the atmosphere as well as the service was just super! We really enjoyed it. Definitely worth a visit. We will surely return. Many thanks to the team!
