Corfu is not only beautiful in spring and summer time but also in winter. Colored with earthy hues and warm colours of the leaves that fill the streets. Additionally, as a place intertwined with music the rain puts the tone for all the artistic inspiration you didn’t know you need.

  • Favela Nº17  

We really can’t get enough of this place! Favela opened a few years ago and managed to win us over with its neat vintage and romantic decor, its delicious savory and sweet pancakes and the ideal location.

During the summer time it welcomes us to the most picturesque and beautiful neighborhood of Campielos, while in colder days we are craving for one little corner inside Favela that will host our warm, inspiring moments as we observe the rain from its window. Pin the Favela on your map, walk through the narrow cantons of the “Campielo” area and it is sure to become your favorite hangout.

Important detail: Favela is quite busy and it will take patience and a bit of luck to get a table, its friendly personnel thought, will be happy to help you with that.

Puppet cafe is located at a crossroads in the city center and discreetly holds the reins of the favorite cafe of many visitors and locals for its uniqueness in decoration and flavors. We definitely recommend trying a tea from its menu and don’t hesitate to ask about the options available in drinks, dishes and for later cocktails and drinks on its ground floor and first floor, while island visitors have the option of waking up to the most beautufil view od Corfu old town, staying in one of the rooms on the third and fourth floors of the building.

Order your coffee and ask for the snack options or alternatively enjoy a fresh juice with scrambled egg. Whatever you choose, the cleanliness and simplicity of the space will surely manage to give you a pleasant break from everyday life and perhaps inspiration for diy’s for your house. A short talk with one of the two owners of Gabao will give you all the information about the original form of the furniture in their space as almost all of the cafe is created from recycled old furniture.
