The first in a mini-series of warm and wonderful brunch places around the world. This one's pure fantasy for me, as I've never had a Campari, never been to Crete and it is after all a Tuesday. But I trust the Barefoot Contessa, and her Campari Orange Spritzer recipe, suitable for daytime; and the recommendations of the stylish Eleni from My Paradissi, who calls Crete home. Imagine coffee on that terrace, followed by a leisurely all-day picnic on the shores of Triopetra Beach. Or spend the day at Pagopoieion (Ice Factory) in Heraklion, where a brunch can easily extend to an afternoon and evening of food, music and mingling with friends. Shall we all book a flight right now?
