We chanced upon this place while exploring at night. All the dessert looked so delicious! We decided on the cheesecake for takeaway but it was too sweet and the base wasn't crunchy. But we took nice pictures of the cakes :)

This cafe on the main street has a great view overlooking the caldera. We went there after reading good recommendations of the pastry. They had a wide selection of cakes as well as traditional Greek pastries.

The lemon pie did not disappoint. We also tried the chocolate walnut cake which was ok.

Do not try the ice-cream! Tastes very diluted and really not worth it.

We spent two weeks in Oia, and came upon this place by accident. When walking through to check out the menu, our son accidentally knocked over an ash tray and broke it and started to cry. The waitress was great and gave him a hug so he wouldn't feel bad. We ended up going there every night for take-out deliciousness every night. Because we could never decide, we ended up getting two or three different desserts each night so we'd have time to try everything before we left. Nothing disappointed us, it was all wonderful. The standouts for me were the milk pie, which was like a rich creamy custard, and the baklava, completely drenched in honey and amazing. I'd get a piece for dessert and a piece for breakfast and end up eating them both at once. Our son, who's 6, developed a crush on the waitress and they were all so sweet to him.

Our last night in Oia we ate our desserts there. The caldera view side is gorgeous, but we also loved the sidewalk side - it's a great place for people watching. We spent two hours there, late at night, just soaking up the end of a fantasy trip to Santorini. We recently learned that our son's favorite pizza place has tragically closed, so I do hope to find Melenio when we return in 2014. Yes, it was a bit pricey, but we didn't care - we did pretty well with food costs and just considered this our daily splurge. Just fabulous.
