Day Trips

Hello Heraklion!- locals favourite pt.2

Here are some of the places where a typical local favours.

Day 1 - The title of your day
Events of the day
Think Tank 3rd wave espresso & wine bar
Morning coffee at Think Tank!
Lovely cafeteria (Idaiou Androu 7) where mostly youngsters go to enjoy the typical greek freddo esspresso or cappuccino. The style is a combination of retro with an industrial vibe which can really thrill you. Contemporary paintings on the walls, vintage books,decorations and an old typing machine are some of the things that include the whole decor. Not to mention the small wine cellar and the rooftop where you can sit and enjoy your fresh homemade lemonade (3euros) viewing the city from the top. You will enjoy it especially in summertime as you can sit outside while there is a djay playing his groovy sets all day.
The staff is really creative as they always redecorate accordingly to the season (Valentine's day, Christmas time etc.).
Here you can find the best coffee blends in town (3-5 euros) and of course they offer really cool hamburgers with fries too! (5 euros)
In the evening you can also come here (before 11) to taste the variety of wines they offer (glass: 5euros)
Take Away at Mpritzolomperdemata
Feeling hungry at the city center of Lions Square?
Check out Mpritzolomperdemata! It's just next to the main fountain.
They offer a "sandwich" : pork/steak/chicken breast with french fries, tyrokafteri (spicy cheese), cabbage,tomato, some sauce and on top oregano, aaaaall inside a tsiapata bread! Yummy!
You can order this for just 3,5 euros
The place inside is not really big and comfortable to sit in, so its much better to take it away and go for a walk around the town.

Arrenon Thileon
At Milatou Perdikari 3 you can find this place like no others. It looks like a school from the outside. small tables, childrens books, chalk board, colourful pencils etc. Don't worry, it is a place for olders too! It is considered to be a greek restaurant but mostly people go there to drink a lot of wine in jugs and they order food just to accompany it. The Cousine is Greek and Mediterranean and the dishes are normal but not really big to full you up. The prices of them start from 5 euros and the jug wine (half litre) costs only 3euros. Ah if you want something different try Retsina Malamatenia, which is a resinated wine and one of the few around these days.
We suggest not to go really late as it is going to be really crowded (especially on weekends). It is open from the afternoon until 3 after midnight
