“It is open at last”
Review of Starbucks - CLOSED

We visit the Kanoni area approx once a week or so and were disapointed to find this ubiquitous coffee shop closed for the early part of the season. (We were even told that it would not be opening for the 2012 season and chains on the gates confirmed that at the time!)
However we were glad to find the place is now open until September. Typical Starbucks coffee and fare, choc chip cheesecake, cheese and ham sandwiches etc.
Current prices (Euros):-
Frapuchino Caramel Light Tall 4.75, Grande 5.30, Venti 5.95
Frapuchino Coffee Tall 4.35, Grande 4.75, Venti 5.35
Capuchino Coffee (Hot) Tall 2.50, Grande 3.20, Venti 3.95
Espresso single 1.75, double 2.60

A couple of minor gripes, although they have trimmed some of the branches of the surounding trees, views are somewhat blocked in comparison with the two lower down viewing points (particularly for the airplanes landing and taking off). Also if you have mobility problems please note there are a number of flights of stairs that you have to climb to get to the place.

That all said, on a hot sunny day the breeze is a welcome on the outdoor terraces.

It is hard to find what us Brits consider decent cake in Corfu but Starbucks manages it. Not only the most moist and delicious carrot cake but a chocolate cake that makes you want to lick the plate. No real surprises except for its location - this has to be the Starbucks with the best view in Greece. Additional entertainment is provided by the planes taking off from the nearby airport .... but for me this adds to the charm of the place.

I usually would not recommend a Starbucks coffeeshop, as it can be found in almost any bigger city. However, this one is fantastic thanks to the beautiful view it has on Mouse Island and Vlaherna Monastery - clearly the most popular photo visitors of Corfu take.
The coffeeshop has a nice, calm terrasse with relaxing lounge chairs. We were there on a Sunday during lunch time and it was still quiet. Below is a very touristic café filled with bus tourists but they do not seem to find their way up.
Food and drinks are standard Starbucks and also the prices did not seem to differ. Parking is possible just below the terrace - if it is not too crowded by tourists.

Very recommendable for a quiet stop for a Frappe to enjoy the famous view!
