My favourite places to have breakfast on Karpathos

We always have breakfast at home, but once or twice we like to have breakfast outside. When we do, we have breakfast in Pigadia at En Plo or close to our house at Poseidon Blue. How & what you can read in this blog πŸ™‚

Breakfast on Karpathos

I love having an extensive breakfast. Of course, it’s even nicer when you’re on holiday and can have breakfast early in the morning with lovely weather and a beautiful view! With our own house on Karpathos we actually always have breakfast at home. Nice (toasted) bread, tea and fresh juice. But I also like to have breakfast outside. But what’s better than to have a delicious breakfast prepared for you every now and then. After all, you are on holiday πŸ˜‰

We go to En Plo to have breakfast at the harbour. Because it is the capital of Karpathos, there is always something going on at the harbour. We choose Poseidon Blue when we want a bit more peace and quiet with a beautiful view. Both have a delicious breakfast with good coffee.

En Plo

The restaurant En Plo you find at the harbour in Pigadia ”under” the bank / restaurant Acropolis next to the stairs (see below via google maps). We often choose En Plo when we are on our way to a beach a bit further from our house. Think of Appella, Kyra or Achata.

At En Plo they have all different kinds of breakfasts with really good coffee. You can choose anything you like, from a nice breakfast with yoghurt, fried egg on bread or a club sandwich ;). En Plo is also very active on Instagram, so if you take a nice picture of your breakfast, be sure to tag them.

Recommended: Yoghurt bowl

A few years ago, the owners changed and lucky me, the menu has not changed that much! At least, some things have been added or changed in appearance, but I don’t think many dishes have disappeared from the menu. Very good, because my favourite breakfast was still on the menu: a yoghurt bowl with fresh juice and coffee. Vincent chose (yes, for breakfast!) a club sandwich with chicken and chips. Both dishes looked great. You really get a lot and it is really delicious! Then imagine yourself in your summer outfit, in the sun, at the harbour and your morning couldn’t start better. πŸ˜‰

In the evening happy hour

If we are in Pigadia in the evening, we like to visit En Plo, because they have delicious cocktails and also this menu has been extended and is now even tastier πŸ˜‰ P.S. Happy Hour starts at 16.30 hours. Need more inspiration for restaurants for lunch or dinner? Check our 5 favourites restaurants on Karpathos.

Poseidon Blue

Since Angela and Ingmar took over more and more from Angela’s parents, they have been improving their hotel and restaurant concept. The restaurant is known for its quality and the dishes are just that little bit different. Also a number of rooms have been adjusted to a modern and luxurious segment. Of course, the breakfast could not stay behind!

They also have a special breakfast menu for non-hotel guests where you can choose from a standard menu with fresh bread and fruit, orange juice, yoghurt and delicious toppings. In addition, there are a number of more luxurious menus with an omelette or fried egg with bacon, pancakes, gluten-free breakfast and breakfast for the kids.

In addition, Poseidon serves delicious coffee. For the Dutch and Italians this is the most important thing to start your day well! The combination of the delicious breakfast with the view on the Damatria beach is fantastic!
