This is really an anywhere in Greece sort of tip but Central Park Cafe here in Heraklion was one of my favourites, the coffee being served with a chilled bottle of water and a complimentary shot glass of a blancmange-type thing which I've never come across before. Must ask Gala what it's called!

Update - I actually asked Janet but it seems that the blancmage thing (which we decided was probable some sort of egg custard) was a little quirky thing done only by Central Park - Thanks anyway Janet :)

Yep sitting in the shade watching the city's morning bustle and just being at peace with the world - Has to be done!

Address: Central Park Cafe
Directions: Central Park I presume!!
