The Best Brunch And Breakfast Spots In Ithaki, Greece

Evangelos Tsirmpas

Ithaki is an Ionian island off the northeast coast of Kefalonia. The island is famous for being Homer’s Ithaca, which is the home of Odysseus in the story of Odyssey. It is also home to some great breakfast and brunch spots where you can fuel up before exploring the island. Here are some of our favorites.
