Il forno di Gerasimo

Known for its two very hospitable owners, the Il forno di Gerasimo is a great spot to unwind and enjoy the café's one-of-a-kind decor, carefully crafted by the hosts. Desserts, sweet crepes, and ice creams are probably the most popular (but far not the only) items on the menu.


Cafes dot the island of Mykonos, their numbers peaking in the Old Town area and along the beachfront. Greek souvlaki enjoys special popularity among visitors looking to grab a quick bite with an authentic flair, and so do the sweet and savoury pancakes. For dessert, do not miss a local almond-based treat called 'amygdalota'–a bell-shaped cookie with a soft core that is crunchy on the outside.
