It is usually duifficult to walk past a coffee bar with alluring cakes on display!

The conversation was straight to the point.

'We'd like a coffee and a cake'.

'Well you have come to the right place'

In my case the cake was a lovely slice of cheesecake - not one of those processed ones but real, heavy, cheesecake. The Cafe Latte was as good as it gets. Koutoulloufari is a pretty village and this is a great place to relax, have a drink and watch the tourists go by.

Glad we dropped in and will do so again.

Just the place to take refuge when the sun is at its hottest. Has a wonderful small courtyard to the side which gathers a cooling breeze from the mountainside at the hottest time of the day. A little piece of Holland that is right at home in a Greek Mountain Village.
The proprietors are very pleasant in demeanour and the location is spotless.
Pastries and Savouries outstanding, by far the tastiest Apple Dumpling and Vanilla Sauce I have ever tasted.
Already looking forward to visiting the next time I am in Crete.

Out for a walk one morning we noticed the Rahati and decided we'd call in on the way back to buy some Greek pastries.
We are so pleased we did because the Kataifi were superb although extremely filling!
Even if you don't stop for a meal, have for a coffee and pastry - or even buy some to take away as we did - I promise
you wont be disappointed!

You liked our home made Kadaifi, which is nice to hear. Maybe next time you should try our meals, you would definitely also not be disappointed ;-)
Thanks for your review.

We visited Rahati for several late breakfasts; were attracted by terrific pastry smell. There is nice terrace and free WiFi. Cafe proposes several breakfast sets with fresh orange juice which have quite a nice price. Though we didn't try this. Not all pastries from menu are available everyday so one can chose something from vitrine. Apple pie is very nice, there are also giant croissants (approx. 25 length!), turnovers and traditional pastries. Yogurt with honey is really big! Nice cold coffee with chocolate. What I didn't like was cheese turnover - crispy dry in cheese part, unchewable! Tea in all Koutouloufari I didn't like, specific strange taste, maybe comes from local water. So if not to take breakfast set, the price for 2 is about 20Euro (2 drinks, yogurt, croissant and apple pie).
