Cafe culture

koukouvayia cafe hania chania
No, I'm not at Starbucks, but Greeks love to copy brands, labels and names. This one is done more stylishly; I picked up the paper coffee mat at Koukouvayia cafe in Akrotiri, Hania. 'Koukouvayia' is the Greek word for 'owl'.

  4. I think I'll prefer Greek wine to Greek coffee (but then I don't drink coffee anyhow...)

    Happy Holidays!

  5. !!!

    I think it was a mistake for them to use the same font maybe :-D (and a little bit of the color scheme...). But you are right about copying. It is so annoying as well...Like we can't think of anything original...TV series, logos :-(

    If it worked for "them" it is not 100% sure it is going to work for anyone else :-D
