Taking a stroll in APOLLONIA be sure not to miss Gerontopoulos !!!!! The best by far!!!! Excellent quality and very fresh. You may try the little waffles which are totally delicious topped with their perfect homemade ice cream!!! An absolutely must at any time of the early hours . Especially after lots of drinks !!!

Super nice people, unique atmosphere and probably the best orange spongy cake on the planet. And the shop stays open very late which is a very good plus.

I was there for breakfast. It's a must visit place. Breakfast and sweets are excellent! The waitress very sweet and helpful. Try the local sweets, they are the best on the island!

Gerontopoulos sweet shop is elegantly decorated and a serene place to have a good conversation or just to relax. we tried a local sweet and their ice cream, the latter being a better choice.

Patisserie is of fine quality; chocolate is excellent; middle east taste is present in all sweets. Also coffe (both Italian and Greek style) is excellent.

Good pastry shop but with very expensive prices. Do a little search as there are much better pastry shops in Artemonas with more reasonable prices.

The "zacharoplastion" (sweet shop) dates from decades ago and is still in the family. It's amazing, with fancy things and local specialties. A must!
