Largely speaking, the summers in Greece I tend not to forget are those when I wake up in front of this endless blue horizon to enjoy a laid-back coffee together with some tasty treats. Exo Meria in Tinos is probably one of the best such spots anyone can enjoy. Where time almost stands still.

As I visit again the beautiful village of Isternia, I realise it’s quite early in the day. Thankfully, we’re staying very close to it this time so it’s definitely going to become our favourite morning spot. As we walk down the stairs on this breeze day, the classical music is playing low in the background and the place has just about the right amount of patrons still retaining its tranquil vibe.

The breakfast choices have slightly changed since last time but the essence of a carefully selected menu with local ingredients and homebaked goods is here to stay. As I sip through my cold espresso, I try to absorb this amazing view to Syros and the southern part of the Cyclades. Newspapers, magazines and even some local pamphlets make for a beautiful array of literature to consume whilst having my breakfast.

The options are numerous but I stick to the classics – bread, butter and jam– only to discover later that the bread comes home-baked and piping hot, the orange jam is also homemade and together with the yummy butter they make for an amazing delight. Of course we also order an oven-baked egg omelette that comes with tomato and some sprinkled feta cheese on top – another one for the books!

What strikes me though is the french pancakes, done Greek style. With honey and feta cheese. Oh my, oh my. Such a remarkable and Greece-twisted dessert to finish off your summery breakfast!

There are also other options that are yummy like the spinach omelette or the louza sandwich, so that’s why we also come visiting the following day and the one after that…

During the late hours of the afternoon, the place puts on its more delicate look getting ready for the sunset. Amazing views all around are captivating and a glass of rosé is what you need to wash down a few of the own local treats they serve during this hour.
