Kazarma, once upon a time was the warehouse of arms of the Greek Heroine Manto Mavrogenous! Nowadays, it is a contemporary café-restaurant with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in the seaside promenade of Mykonos scenic little town. A special place with comfy couches and long wooden tables that is open all day long, all year long. A classic Mykonian venue with exceptional service and divine food.
Our “love affair” with Kazarma started during our offseason visit to Mykonos, completely casually and unexpectedly! It just needed a smile! A truly heartfelt smile and a bright and happy “Kalimera” to two strangers passing by that made us stop without any hesitation. And after that first stop, this cosy place with the affable waiters became our hangout for the rest of our stay on the island of the winds. The place we enjoyed breakfasts, lunches, early dinners and lots of lovely moments with colleagues and friends.
Kazarma opens very early in the morning serving breakfast and a great variety of coffees and remains opens till late at night. It is the place you can stop anytime for coffee, drinks, snacks and desserts or a delicious meal. The cuisine is Greek-Mediterranean and local produce is honoured by the chef and enjoyed by the clients.
If you happen to be around and decide to stop over, then here are some of our favourites:
– Coffee in the morning is served with fresh mini croissants
– Juices are freshly squeezed and are simply delicious
– Ekmek is part of the deserts but you can also enjoy it with a coffee if you have a sweet tooth
– Loukoumades with ice-cream is definitely a must if you are lucky enough and are on the menu
– The slow-cooked lamp is palatable
– The beef with the red sauce served on a cream made of mash aubergines is divine
– The octopus is to die for
Kazarma is one of these very few places that the spirit of Greek hospitality is alive and well!
Kazarma for us is definitely the place to go when in Mykonos.
