We will be going back to Paros just to visit the cafe. The staff are so friendly and generous - the experience is off the scale. I could not recommend this establishment highly enough. Amazing

We holiday on Paros every year staying in the SE part of the island. Having found this little gem of a cafe some years ago we make a trip into Parikia specifically to relax and chill out here. The patio area is shaded, it is a peaceful location, the owner and staff are friendly and a visit is wonderfully unhurried ( don’t worry, the service isn’t). A glass of wine accompanied by complimentary cheese, tomatoes, cucumber etc - ah, I’ve just been transported back there - sigh! We’ve never really had more than a light lunch there but I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Fantastic service, lovely little place for drinks and food. You must come here when in Paros! We came here most nights during our stay.

We arrived late in the morning with our sailing boat and as we were looking for a nice cafe for brunch we found lovely Symposium. Its situated 5-10 minutes from the harbour on its own tiny little square. The tables, chairs, trees and flowers...everything is made up super nicely! Small little retreat for travelers to soak up local vibes. Food is good too: Nice salads, omelettes and crepes!

For coffee, beer, wine, snacks, food, sweets. A great spot to chill out under the shade of an enormous bougainvillea. I had a beer and they offered a small plate with cheese, salami, olives, baby tomatoes, and cucumber as an accompanying snack ("meze"). That's what we Greeks call "meraki" (partly means being in the mood to make something beautiful or delicious).
