Back in the days when Poros’s seafront was dominated by the old-fashioned kafeneia or coffee houses, the Café Sofrano stood out as the first café.
That was twenty-one years ago and it has since occupied the same prime spot, between the main market and town hall square. Like several other businesses on the Poros, its name was inspired by the sea and sailing and refers to a boat’s windward side.
Unlike other cafes, Sofrano doesn’t have a projection television for viewing football matches or other sporting events. Discreet background music and a laid-back atmosphere make it the perfect place to kickback and relax over coffee or cocktails. After dark, this popular hangout dims the lights for a more intimate atmosphere of a cozy bar.
Sofrano manages the perfect balance between crowded and quiet—a place that’s always full but not overflowing.
