Lovely place for dessert. Cavalas is know by all greeks. Loukoumades is like churros in Spain. Cooked with honey sauce. I love this place

This is an almost round the clock self service with seating both in and out, which offers great coffee, basic good quality snacks, dry nuts and sweets. Dry nuts as well as coffee are prepared in house. Best value for money I've seen around, great quick service for grab and go to the beach/work/etc.

The place is a total mess and one would never choose to step inside UNLESS some local has recommended it. The served coffee is excellent, very quick. I wouldnt recommend to sit there but only for take-away.

Two years ago, I was enthusiastic about this place because of its outstanding "loukoumades" (see my review of August 2013). I had explained that Savalas Café is, of course, not a restaurant but its "loukoumades" and coffee deserved full recognition.

To be precise, "Savalas" in Varkiza these days should nor be considered a restaurant. In fact, its owner told me so yesterday (August 20). But as a Cafe', it is remarkable if only for its loukoumades! For those not really familiar with his exquisite dessert (and borrowing from Wikipedia), loukoumades is a kind of pastry, made of deep-fried dough, soaked... More
