We only called in for takeaway coffee and cakes to take to the beach but the coffee was good, the service friendly and helpful, and the cakes were delicious and outstanding value.

We stopped here one morning to have coffee before taking the ferry to Sweet Water Bay and were greeted by the lovely Despina. She treats everyone like family and is always smiling. We stopped again in the evening on our return and enjoyed her delicious cakes and home made lemonade. In fact after that we stopped here every morning and afternoon we visited the beach!
Lovely views from the terrace, lovely cakes and snacks, we took her Sfakia Pie (Filo pastry with feta and spinach) to the beach for lunch every day, and of wonderful service from the lovely Despina. Thank you and I hope we meet you again soon!

We ate at Despina's every day that we were in Chora Sfakion. She is the warmest most gentle woman in the world. Her cakes were amazing, as was the Sfakian pie she made for us fresh for breakfast one day. Breathtaking views. I must come back here. Cannot rate highly enough. Despina I love you!

The lady of the house and her son run this coffee bar. The cakes look delicious and are home made. Very large pieces you get on your plate but a bit pricy. For 2 coffees and 2 pieces of cake we paid €12.
