    The Alpha Cafe and charming host Lucky, is one of my favourite places to visit on the beautiful island of Crete.
    My mother Audrey, always visits Lucky when in Crete.

    Sublime place….and idyllic spot, great host, informant and entertainer in Lucky. I discovered this for my last three days of a trekking holiday in April 2016, returned in October and brought a family group for a great week at the end of April 2017. i’ll be back….

    This was by far the best meal I had in the area during my 15 day stay.
    Sofia’s omelette was indescribable, the portions were hefty and cheap!
    Unfortunately I discovered Azogyres two days before my return home.
    It’s an awesome place and I will stay there next year.
