Isolis cafe is just a few steps from the water and one of the first restaurants you will see when you get off the ferries. There are a lot of tables and chairs, and sometimes you have to wait a while to be served. Free wifi available. If you want some typical Greek food then go elsewhere. If pizza is your thing then you,will be ok, but who wants to come all the way to this special Greek island and eat pizza! The breakfasts are good though, but not that cheap.
The drinks weren't overly expensive considering the close location of the cafe to the boats.

Hydra is a very different island from the Cyclades where we had arrived from. Lots of exclusives and expensive little shops, a very sweet little harbor, much more sofisticated than our previous stops. We were spoiled for choice for restaurant and followed trip advisor selection n2, nearest to our anchor, to avoid walking in the heat. First we were disappointed not to find our usual choice of fresh fish or moussaka, but then decided it was nice to have a pizza/salad for a change. Waou our pizzas arrived and they were as big as the table, so big that 2 of us couldn't get to the end of one!! Never mind left overs are packed for you to take on the boat. This explains the price. And how nice to sit on the harbor watching boats and people coming in/out and life pouring in now that the heat has gone. Beware of the cats they will try their best soft eyes to grab a piece of your meal.

Isalos is a very nice coffee-bar in the harbour of Hydra. Typical location looking on greek life from the early morning to late nigth. Everything is perfect from the color of the chairs to the kindness of waiters always ready to your requests. Breakfast is really very good and genunine with fresh orange juice, hot bread and gourgeous yoghurt wth honey and fruits.
