Cafe-bar Exedra is one of the oldest hotspots in the island of Ithaki, established since 1920. Located right next to the sea in Vathy, it offers great breakfast and coffee. Later at night it becomes a vibrant bar, serving ouzo, wine, tsipouro or cold beer, which is always accompanied with homemade meze dishes based on fresh fish or seafood.
Cafe-bar Mylos is one of the most classic haunts of the island, established in 1992 and housed in a beautiful neoclassical building in Vathy. Aside from its delicious snacks and crepes, it also offers high quality bar service and amazing cocktails. After sunset, the bar follows smooth jazz, ethnic and lounge rhythms, while after midnight the fun and dance become more intense, with groovy and pop music.

Open from very early in the morning until late at night, it serves excellent coffee and delicious waffles, pancakes and club sandwiches. At night the bar attracts several locals and tourists due to the dynamic music and the nice beers and cocktails.
