Worst food and service ever. We choose this location based on recommendations, initially to have a local experience/breakfast. The cafe is filthy (sticky tables and chairs) and reeks of gasoline and sewer smell. The food that was served to us was disgusting (undrinkable coffee, burned industrial bread) and nothing local (industrial honey and butter). My friend and I forced ourselves to eat some of the bread and the coffee to avoid insulting the "poor owner" (and were intending to tip the guy because we thought he is struggling to keep the place open). To top it all, the greedy owner charged us 18 euros for 2 cups of coffee (paper cups) and 2 burned toasts. I do not recommend this place for all the reasons listed above.

What a fabulous little place. Such history and tradition within this beautiful little cafe. I strongly recommend anyone to go here, but more importantly there are so many GLUTEN FREE options 😍 Everything I tried was beautiful. My partner who isn’t GF had the baklava and many other yummy treats that he said were divine. This cafe is definitely worth a visit, if not only for the treats but the tradition it clearly holds and the history in the building.

This bakery is a very special place. We were there to pick up some rusks to use for a meal later on but received the added treat of watching some bread being made in their very traditional way with some of the original machinery. It's a family owned and run bakery dating back hundreds of years and still maintains its authentic charm. Everyone was so friendly and while we were only there for the one item, in the end we couldn't resist trying their spinach and feta pies. They were crispy and oh so delicious. This is a lovely gem and we highly recommend a visit.

Exceptional family run business. Perfectly situated, delicious goodies, lovely family who were happy to chat. This is a must. Wasn’t expecting to find such a gem in Mykonos. Wish I could have tried everything. Don’t miss it!

This is the oldest bakery in Mykonos, founded in the 15th century and still thriving today. The atmosphere is super welcoming with cosy nooks and the loveliest people behind the counter. Their spinach and feta pie is the perfect breakfast item as are their endless number of sweet items, including some lovely almond biscuits.

WOW! This is an amazing slightly dark hole in the ground with steep steps down into it. I LOVE this bakery so much so that I spent over an hour searching for it the next day. If only I had taken a picture of the sign.
I had cookies that looked and tasted like they had a pomegranate flavored center that was thick and soft and luscious. It made it necessary to hunt the place down for a lot more of the same. YUM!!

Definitely the most unique place we found in Mykonos during our 2 weeks trip. If you’re looking for an authentic place with history, this is the place to visit. There’s a variety of both savoury pastries and sweets and others- all absolutely delicious and definitely better than from chain bakeries. We visited several times for breakfast and it was absolutely lovely!

Walking around the windmill area in the morning (best time to see the town as it slowly wakes up), you might stumble upon this wonderful bakery situated in a 500 year old house. The architecture and ambience are magical. You might feel like you have been transported back in time. The pastries are so fresh and the locals stop in to get their bread here. It is an old bakery with a long history. My understanding is that the oven is 200 years old. Every day the fire is stoked in a specific manner known only to a few people. The dough for the bread which is considered to be the best by locals, is prepared in an old dough mixer and if you happen to be there while it's mixing, the owners will let you watch the mixing and then the expert dough shaping as it prepares to enter the oven.
They don't just have bread here. There is a huge variety of pastries and desserts. I tried the baklava (rich and not too sweet) and the spanakopita (spinach pie), which I came back for several times, but there were quite a few other very happy people eating the sweet pastries, doughnuts, and cheese pies. It is great start to your day in Mykonos and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. Once again, the atmosphere here is magical and you must experience it for it is one of the few places that is 100% authentic both in architecture and food quality.

Hubby is a chef so whenever we are travelling, I try to find places that are going to really catch his interest, Gioras Wood Medieval Mykonian Bakery definitely caught his attention.

You really have to look to find this bakery but believe me, it's worth it!!!! The bakery is not at eye level, you have to look down and walk in through a small door. Once you're inside, the smells will capture your attention and you'll want to dive into everything.

We found the bakery in the early afternoon so the pickings were not as abundant as they would have been in the early morning but we were not disappointed.

Hubby was thrilled to see the oven and to meet the famous "George". We asked the clerk if she could tell us about some of the items so she explained everything they had to us. I was leaning towards a large chocolate iced donut but she told me that while it would be good, it wouldn't be one of the best things to have. She suggested their muffins which are traditionally made Greek muffins (with chocolate) but when she explained the honey balls to me ... THAT WAS IT!!! Hubby had baklava (of course) but I decided to stick with the honey balls.

We decided to sit and enjoy the ambiance in the bakery with a beverage and our snacks. We're really glad we did because they were so good, we had to get some in take out containers for the next day. The clerk put baklava in one foil container for us and filled the second foil container with honey balls. Believe it or not, the honey balls were even better the next day after sitting in all that honey over night.

If you are going to be in Mykonos you absolutely MUST stop at this bakery and you MUST try the honey balls. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

We wandered through old Mykonos town and by chance discovered this little gem of a bakery that is the only original medieval Mykonian bakery left (the others have now closed due to touristy knick knack shops taking over delightful and quaint Mkyononos. This is still family owned and has been in the family for over 6 generations. We were greeted by the family owners of George Vamvakouris and we stayed to have a real coffees and biscuits (still warm out of the oven!) This is a very simple bakery but the bread looked amazing and all the biscuits were delicious. I love supporting family owned, independent shops when I travel and wanted to pass along this little bakery foodie gem if you crave traditional Greek breads, pies and buns.
