After walking through the town, Cafe Potamos is a wonderful place to stop for a coffee or beer. You can sit in the shade of trees by the river and listen to the raucous calls of the geese swimming past!

This Café isn't a restaurant, so they haven't got much food here, but it is so peaceful and beautiful just to sit and relax. It's right near the river, and there is an abundance of wildlife there. Geese, ducks, huge rainbow trout, and the eels...More
