“My all time favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Best cafe for breakfast and brunch. Best bar for a quiet drink after dinner to reflect upon the events of the day. This is where long-time Prokopios friends meet and where new friendships are born. Everybody is welcome here.

Established in the late 70s by Karin and Adonis, this is where German meets Greek cuisine. Heike is the name of my favorite sandwich named after the person who invented it years ago. Adonis is well known for omelets made from scratch. Choose one from the menu or create your own and he will cook it to perfection for you.

I first met Karin and Adonis in the summer of 1983, 30 years ago! Back then there were only a handful of tavernas in Prokopios. The Hideaway Cafe then and now is the place to get away from a busy life. This is where Karin and Adonis have tirelessly welcomed us tourists to Greek hospitality season after season for all these years. Stop by if you have a chance and make sure to have a swim at the nearby beach, one of the finest around.

This is the place that made me get an account here so that I can submit this review. This is quite a different 5 star cafe. The Hideaway Cafe deserves all the stars under the heavens.

“Nice chilled lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We went for lunch and had a Greek salad and mixed platter. Service and food were great, in a relaxed hideaway too - not the cheapest around knocking it to 4 stars, but a good place if you want to kick back with no pressures.

“Go to place for a nice Greek salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We weren't too hungry and went here for a Greek salad. It was actually the simplest yet somehow the best salad we had. Topping it off with some bread made it a complete and inexpensive meal for two.

“A totally relaxing spot on earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Great food, great owners, cosy atmosphere and nice guests. A quiet spot in Prokopios and a nice place to go for breakfast, lunch and in the evenings. Delicious ice creams and you should try Adonis' special Naxos sausage! I also love the sandwiches. See you soon Karin and Adonis!

“A treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Twenty meters back from the world-class beach of Agios Prokopios on Naxos island is the Hideaway Cafe. As the name implies, the Hideaway is an intimate, cozy little place that is long on atmosphere and laid-back hospitality. The food is great. And so are the prices.
The exacting standards of owners Karin and Adonis ensure that each morsel is fresh and tasty. From the Greek yogurt with fruit to omelets you can’t find a better breakfast on the island. And you can get a great cup of coffee to go with it. A wide range of sandwiches, some with a surprising combinations of ingredients can make lunch a difficult decision. But, what you choose almost doesn’t matter, they are all pretty good. And the ice creams are awesome.
In the evening enjoy drinks and light dinners and snacks. Try the Naxos sausage flambe, my particular favorite.
As good as everything about the Cafe is, the warmth and conviviality of the owners is even better. Karin, Adonis and their son Nikolas are special people and specialize in a warm welcome. You just want to hang out there and make the Cafe Hideaway your second home on the island.
