Kafenio STO Scolio (The old school house), Anidroi, Crete, Greece – 3 visits

The old school cafe in Anidroi is my favorite place on Crete and I am exited to finally show it to you. 
Go there but keep it just at is !

It is not only my favorite so we went three times in our seven days on crete in mid September. Twice for lunch and once for dinner and this blog post is all those visits combined. 
First time I came here was alone after the lovely walk up the gorge of Anidri. It’s a lovely tranquil garden under a huge old olive tree. It is a pure greek cuisine, organic produce and with a simple and lovely presentation.
The menu which is changing daily are hanging on the wall… crosses before the item will indicate which items are not ready yet or red when it has been depleted..
What 2 choose.. it isn’t evident and better to be many sharing @ your table

Many visit’s and many pictures, but this is a strong recommendation. delicious food, lovely setting. Reasonably fast and fantastically skilled friendly service. 
Greek food, with inspirations from italy, classic but presented and cooked with passion, it is all in the taste.
Lessons Learned
  • Go many & taste more
  • This is also an excellent address for vegetarians
  • Sometimes there are no space for anything but raki
  • Life is good…
