Pagopoieion, Iraklio

Agios Titos Square
Iraklio , Crete
Tel: 30 2810 346 028's insider take:

Breakfast place in the morning and jazz club late at night, with lunch and dinner served in between, this former ice factory is one of the hippest gathering places in town, and one of the most oddly decorated. For one thing, there's graffiti on the wall that was written by Nazis when they occupied Iraklio during World War II. It reads, "God save us from storm and wind and slow workmates." For another thing, the bathroom, which has a fountain in the middle of it, looks like the work of ceramic artists gone wild. None of this is surprising, considering that the owner is an artist herself. If you are just here to nibble, as many are, try the galatopita, or milk pie.

Open daily 9 am to 1 pm.
