In its infant years this building named at the time “the black cat” welcomed people of the highest statute in the village. Captains from around the Mediterranean Sea have probably shared a drink or two with locals of the 1940’s a good few times! In the 1960’s it was the bus station and a typical Cretan “kafeneion” with blue chairs and tables. In the 1990 the two sons of this kafeneion’s owner took over and created with a lot of love and devotion, this very important to Paleochora’s social life, meeting place.
Named after the nickname of the older son “Saint”, it is proud to have offered and continue to offer some of the most memorable nights in very very, many people’s lives.
This place will become whatever you want it to become. A morning coffee on the corner table watching everyone buzzing around town, a quiet ice cold beer in the hot sun before or after a swim, an early glass of wine before dinner or all night mouthwatering cheeky cocktails!
Very difficult to forget and with punters from around the world this tiny cafe bar has a very special personality. It oozes with details of handcrafted elegance that have your eyes floating around the place and stopping every now and then to stare at the touches that express the uniqueness of its character.
It’s almost impossible not to form a tight bond with this living breathing organism called “Agios”. One of the hardest things to forget about this place is the feeling that you belong in there! The atmosphere that just makes you want to stay just a little bit longer no matter what time you have to get up the next day, is simply magical and will fill you with pure satisfaction of any amount of time spent in there with your closest people or the punters you just met! Be part of our lives and we will be part of yours for ever! Promise! Agios!
