Kalamata has been gaining popularity as a city trip destination in the past years, mostly thanks to the establishment of five-star resort, Costa Navarino. It is definitely the perfect base to explore the Messinia region. Low-key and unassuming, it also features a variety of bars and coffee shops, where you can enjoy a relaxing break from sightseeing and taste delicious specialties. Here are the best cafes in Kalamata.

Besides coffee, snacks and pastries are also sold here and we guarantee the friendliness of the staff will complete your experience. We’re sold!

Perfect for those in a hurry, Daily Dose is a stylish coffee shop where you can grab your coffee to go or simply drink your coffee like the Italians drink their espresso. We almost think it is a pity the place doesn’t have a proper sitting area as the decor is warm, inviting and pretty to look at. But the star here is definitely the coffee and the variety of snacks you can choose from to accompany your cup of joe.
