Lemnos has a rich agricultural production, something reflected in its culinary tradition.
Most restaurants use local ingredients sourced from small producers, highlighting the island’s unique culinary identity. Cheeses, pasta, flour and bread, as well as meat comes from the land and supply taverns and restaurants. These are the five food spots we recommend in Lemnos.
“Pezoula” is housed on the ground floor of a beautiful two-storey house, with comfy director’s chairs, colourful cushions and basil pots completing the scene. From early in the morning till late at night, you can have coffee, breakfast, brunch, burgers, desserts, wine and cocktails here. Try the kaplama (their version of Croque madame with traditional bread, grated melihloro cheese and 2 fried eggs on top), the fresh vegetable bulgur salad, and the burger that, among other things, contains kaskavali, a local semi-hard cheese. From the dessert list, the samsades, a traditional Lemnos dessert with almonds, sesame and syrup served with kaimaki ice cream, stands out.
