It is not a part of the old town's hidden secrets. I need not tell you much about it. Not rivals with any other in its category. It simply prevails and every other fall short of its existence: "Sokaki". If you do not know about it, you probably never visited Nafplio... As simple as that!
If I was allowed to rename it, I would call it "Souk". The so-called open-air markets in the East, that are full of colors, scents, people going around humming... It would be a "souk" in Marrakesh, where the red velvet spreads out and sensually "paints" the land and the buildings. Almost the same color is spread on the walls of Sokaki, outside and inside.
In the Medina of Nafplio
A breath away from Philellinon Square, at the back of "Panagia" Church, a beloved hang out from the beginning of its existence in the 1980’s, it is one of the oldest cafes in town, well-known such as the woman behind it, Stamatina, who created it. An exotic figure herself, as coming out of a travel guide's pages, so ideally matching to my Souk. Or maybe her "Sokaki" is her own image? She does not say much. I do not blame her. She has been talking with her work for so many years. Too many words is a waste of time. "Sokaki" is her home. She is not considered without it, it does not exist without Stamatina.
Made with love and emotion
Menu trademarks - the savory dishes and crepes made with love to “charge your batteries” in order to explore the rest of the old town of Nafplio and "Psaromahala". It seems that all roads lead to Sokaki -perhaps it is so. Walking from there, you can see almost everything that the city of Nafplio has to offer: being centrally located the Archaeological Museum and not very far away, the St. Spyridon church, where Kapodistrias –the first Governor of Greece- was assassinated. The monuments, streets and images are all an inspiration to the visitor. The Sokaki Café is unique because it has been made with love and emotion, with respect and its own piece of history. Every coffee or drink seems a small journey to tastes. We are expecting you, to begin the next journey together!
