Located in the charming area of Plaka, Yasemi oozes with vintage romance. Its fairylight-decked exterior, climbing jasmine vines, and cozy interior give this place a magical feel, especially in the winter, when the fireplace burns bright. Once there, you can't miss out on the delicious orange pie and the cafe's specialty, jasmine tea!

Safe House

Located in Dionysos, this is without a doubt the ultimate winter hangout! If you visit during the colder winter months you may be lucky enough to see snow, while comfortable pillows and, not just one, but two burning fireplaces will make you feel like you are in a mountain lodge. Make sure to try the ginger cinnamon tea or a hot in-house cocktail!
