Secret Café is a really nice coffee bar located in Pyrgos, Santorini. I've been coming here for almost two years, to enjoy my morning coffee, relax before my working day, and lately to actually work and bring to you all this blogs.
I would like to dedicate this blog to Secret Café, as I believe it is a pity to visit Santorini and not pop in to this place for a morning coffee or an evening drink.
Secret Café's owner is Katerina, a cheerful and incredibly positive person. She always dreamed of opening her own coffee shop, and she made her dream come true in 2013. Ever since, she's been making everyone's day brighter with her smile and good coffee. She really loves what she does, and pours her soul into it, which really shows in her work.
When entering this place, you will be welcome with a heartwarming smile. The interior of the place is cozy, warm, and it perfectly reflects the amazing character of the owner. All over the walls, you can find writings from the people who visited the place over the years, which adds a beautiful touch to the place. You are of course welcome to leave your own mark on the wall, if you feel like it.
The view from Secret Café does not lack beauty as well. Pyrgos Village, where the café is located, is the highest village of Santorini. Because Secret Café is located in the outskirts of the village, it offers the amazing views of the caldera, and the close by islands when the sky is clear. The view is not restricted with the caldera. You can also enjoy the view of Akrotiri, which is equally breathtaking as the cliffside of Santorini.
Apart from the tasty coffees and great atmosphere of the place, it is also a great location for parties. In Secret Café, you can have any type of party you like: birthday parties, name day parties, divorce parties, hen parties, just a party for a good time! You can choose between a public party, a semi-private party, and a completely private party. Beside the affordable prices, you are guaranteed to have the time of your life when hosting your party at Secret Café.
When asking her why someone who owned a coffee shop decided to host parties as well, her answer was "I like parties! I like listening to music, I like dancing and having fun, and if I can offer all those things to other people, it makes me even happier. I also believe that dancing is an important part of life, because it makes you feel free, it helps you express yourself and forget about your daily problems. As dancing is always part of a party, hosting parties at Secret Café is my way of giving people one more excuse to dance!".
Katerina's moto is "Be yourself and leave your dream!" and she really lives by those words.
When you visit Santorini next time, make sure to come to Pyrgos and enjoy a cup of coffee at Secret Café!
