I happened upon this delicious, delightful "patisserie" when in Chania, Crete after a trip to Paris. To see beautiful crispy mini-croisssants on Crete after 2 months there was a surprise and a delight! AND ... they are superb to eat. The handsome loveable Constantinis who studied pastry-making and is still experimenting with wonderful new ideas -- is not only adorable, he is charming -- and generous to a fault! Knowing I was bringing a gift to a friend he refused to let me walk away without gifting me with FABULOUS presents on him including a mouth-watering rosemary shortbread and chocolate "sables" rivaling the best in Paris!!! THANK YOU -- ef charisto -- Constantinis! Everybody loved the goodies!!!
HIGHLY recommended.

A very handy patisserie a minutes walk from the marina front and especially staying opposite it made it convenient for a lovely morning drink. It is run by Konstantinos who must be the best pastry chef around as well as being a lovely guy who offered a very welcoming service all the time. There is definitely something for everyone's taste here and I could not recommend this place any more, definitely worth the visit!

Pasteleria de dana is run by the most talented pastry chef I have ever met. Konstantinos' range of sweets, pastries, cakes, baklava and spanokopita will delight anyone who is lucky enough to visit whilst in Chania.
His homemade treats completely stand out form the other patisseries in the town, and are all freshly made using perfected recipes.
The service was always warm and kind from the whole family who run this lovely little place, I hope I will be able to return some day soon.
The profiteroles are to die for.
I wish this newly established patisserie great success in the future.
