Subject

Tarpon Springs, Greek community, businesses

Description

The kafeneia (men’s coffee houses) are located on West Athens Street. Their long existence testifies to the long-standing, conservative tradition of Greek men spending their free time at these establishments. Today, as in the past, dozens of Greek men continue to sit inside and outside the kafeneia sipping coffee, watching and commenting on passersby, sharing local information, and solving world problems.
