Although I had been visiting Greece for just about 18 years at the time, it wasn't until two years ago that I stumbled upon the lovely village of Athitos or Afytos, Halkidiki. A friend of mine from the U.S. was visiting, so we hopped in my tiny rental car and explored parts of Halkidiki that even I hadn't been. We chose to turn into the village of Athitos because we knew that since we were so close to the sea that having a nice cold frappe with a great view was inevitable.
Since having coffee in Athitos two summers ago, I've been talking to Kosta about it because although he spent nearly every summer in Halkidiki as a child, he had never been there. So, Saturday afternoon we had the chance to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee together in Athitos.
The weather wasn't perfect as it rained for most of the day, but it was still nice enough to enjoy a cup of coffee seaside. The view in Athitos was gorgeous despite the clouds. I highly doubt that this view is ever anything less than beautiful.
I took so many pictures during our time in Athitos and chose 16 for this post. Enjoy...
This little cat kept us company.
The front of the cafe, "On the Rocks". The cafe is actually upstairs & there's an artist's shop downstairs.

I have taken a photo of this view once before. I'm not sure which one I like better.
There is a psarotaverna next to the cafe, the food smelled amazing! Imagine enjoying fresh calamari with this view.
