Avaton 1739 — Coffee & Wine Roof (Naxos Town)

The cafe's well-deserved pride is its beautiful terrace overlooking the water and offering a splendid panoramic view over the whitewashed Naxos Town. Coffees are strong and enjoy a good reputation, but other drinks are available as well. The cafe is located at the top of the town castle.


Cafes are omnipresent in Naxos, many doubling as bars in the after-hours. Quite a few beach bars offer complimentary use of sunbeds and umbrellas to customers. In the way of traditional desserts, Naxos is an island known for its walnut pie made with locally-produced citrus liquor. Do try the so-called "spoon sweets" as well — nuts, fruit pieces, and even some vegetables boiled in sugary syrup and served throughout the year.
