Description: It is a Coffee-Bar done with respect to the Greek tradition on the top of Pyrgos hill.We serve a selection of coffee, fresh fruit drinks, milk shakes, ice creams and desserts.Some appetizers and light food are available.Aperitifs and cocktails are our pride: Mr. Franco, the owner, has a collection of international awards for the quality of his drinks and for the style of his management.Warning!

“Stunning location, great atmosphere, excellent service.”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stumbled on Franco's whilst looking for somewhere to have a meal after swimming on Perissa beach and knowing Pergos was a really authentic hidden town on Santorini. They were upfront about not really being a restaurant but had a small menu of "light" snacks / appertisers. Once we saw the terrace though we were hooked and it was fantastic. We saw the famous Santorini sunset with classical music adding to the ambience. The food was great, more than enough in the heat and the waiters were so attentive and friendly, especially to our teenage son. We'd recommend this cafe to anyone - but keep it a secret!!

“Came back again and again”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We sayed at Voreina for a week in June and made the trek up to Franco Cafe a few times for a drink and some snacks. Service, view and the food we tried were all excellent. If you are in Pyrgos, I would definitely recommend checking out Franco Cafe.

“best sunset”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

for us it was the best place on the island to enjoy the sunset (we did oia, the lighthouse and skaros rock too). you have a perfect view, you can enjoy a drink and a snack and what's more important you have a soundtrack which is amazing.

“Excellent ice coffee!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

It is well positioned and you can see very well parts of the caldera. The Italian coffee and the view was worth climbing the small streets till the cafe. The classic music heard all around the terrace made for a very relaxing afternoon!
