Cafe in Kos Town

Stretching from beneath the arches of a municipal building onto the main square, this bakery-cafe is run by a cooperative supporting low-income women and employs only female staff. The speciality is marmarites – translated as ‘crumpets’, but more like sourdough flatbread – with sweet or savoury toppings, but it also serves pies, juices, coffee and gigantic breakfasts (for two €16).
