There’s no better place to acquire a taste for ouzo than this outdoor kafeneion, founded around 1900. Drink it up with tantalizing mezze, such as basil-scented meatballs, deep-fried whitebait and grilled halloumi with candied figs. With tiny tables on either side of a sloping sidewalk overlooking a leafy square, this is the ultimate people-watching spot.
