It has been a long time since the snacks and coffee place "To Kafeneio" has been housed in a 400+ years old building. It was occasionally the main residence of many famous and unknown Greek people. It consists of the ground floor and the underground floor. In the past it was separated in two parts; the front part (up to the fireplace) and the rear part (the rest), thus having two separate residences. It is witnessed that before the German occupation (1940 - 1944) the children who lived in this neighbourhood used to gather and play in the rear part while the owners of the building kept their chickens at the edge of the rear part.
