Koukouvagia on Profitis Ilias hill in the area of the Venizeloi Tombs, a 5 minute drive from the town center, has established itself as the ultimate hangout for coffee with a panoramic view of Chania, the Venetian Port and the White Mountains.
The reputation of this cafe-patisserie, in operation for 17 years, has surpassed the borders of Crete as well as Greece, earning it a place among the "attractions" that someone should definitely visit during their trip to the beautiful town of Chania.
Apart from the view from the terrace, the star of the show at Koukouvagia are its famous sweets, prepared with love and passion according to secret recipes, which offer true moments of enjoyment. A hallmark and almost synonymous with the venue is the moist, fluffy chocolate cake drenched in hot chocolate yoghurt and garnished with whipped cream.
If you're not a die-hard chocolate lover, choose the igloo, with a base of sponge cake and chocolate cream covered with a cool vanilla cream rich in egg yolk and heavy cream, garnished with pieces of caramelised almond and chocolate syrup, or the Meropi dessert a three-layered gelatin dessert comprising of chocolate, cream, amaretto and almonds.
At Koukouvagia you will also find a selection for a rich and hearty breakfast, a plethora of snacks, cool salads and delicious meat mixes to accompany your beer or wine.
