The Oldest Traditional Greek Cafe, in Pelio

Traditional Greek cafes, mainly found in the small villages of Greece’ s mainland, are a meeting place for local people. You rarely see women in these cafes though, unless they are visitors. 
 
Men meet up, drink their coffees or ouzo and tsipouro, eat mezes, play cards games, talk and argue about politics and football while smoking and laughing.
