Palaios is a nicely decorated traditional dessert and coffee place ( zacharoplasteion) right by the entrance of Plaka's pedestrian alleyways.

It's location and ambiance are pleasant and relaxing, particularly the outside area.

But that's about it for the good parts.

Because when it comes to the fare..

Even the most traditional sweets are incompetently made - baklava with dough (!!!) under a thin layer of phyllo literally swimming in icky sweet syrup, millefeuille with creme patisserie heavier than mud...

Everything tastes indifferent, heavy and exceedingly sugary, a far cry from gourmet.

Yet, they charge premium prices: 12€ for two (bad) baklavas and a bottle of water.

Won't go again...

The place is really cozy and the desserts are really good.
Quite place to drink or have dessert after dinner

Given that this is the only place in Plaka which stays open in the late afternoon (before 6pm) it is a good choice. The deserts are nice. The coffee is average.

When in plaka and considering fresh homemade cakes head directly to Palaios. This place has a nice setting in the shade and a nice indoor seating as well.
