Cafés in Greece is not just an entertainment place, it is a meeting point, a place where you discuss with friends your problems and current affairs and plays a big role in Greek culture.
For years the Greek traditional café, called kafenion, was a place were mainly men used to gather to drink Greek coffee, ouzo and tsipouro, play cards or backgammon (tavli) while discussing politics.
Today, things are quite changed; women have taken their place there, too. But, the idea remains the same. You will see cafés in every corner of Greece, from the busiest spot of the town till the most secluded village in the mountains.
Greeks are really enjoying their coffee time, spending hours with their friends. An average coffee meeting in a cafeteria for a Greek is about 1 and half hour.
