Ιn Vamos village you will find one of Crete’s most important agrotourist destinations. Here visitors have the opportunity to know an agricultural area, its cultural elements, its buildings’ special architecture, its true characteristics, farming jobs, local products, traditional cuisine, music, and its residents’ everyday life

The tale: A building of 1905 which started as a cafe. The main room included the cistern room, with a cistern preserved until today, used to keep the refreshments cool. Bloumosifis was the first owner of this place. His name was a nickname coming from the word "Bloumis" meaning dark-skinned and the word "Sifis", his real name. There were periods that the cafe had moments of glory, especially in the 80's, where lot of social events, shows and concerts were taking place in Vamos, and the cafe treated lot of famous artists, who chose Bloumosifi's cafe to have a drink or a glass of wine and rest after a long night of performing.

“Bloumosifis’ Sterna” tavern – a snack bar-restaurant since 1995 – exclusively uses virgin olive oil and fresh produce by local farms, and cooks its dishes in an oven heated by wood; it has established the necessary bases for the continuation of Cretan diet. Due to these activities, “Bloumosifis’ Sterna” is included today in most Greek and international gastronomic and travel guidebooks. Visitors enjoy their food in the shade of the big plane tree in the summer and in the warmth of the wood-burning stove in the winter, to the sound of good music which is sometimes-mostly in the weekends-live.

There is also a wide variety of Cretan cheeses, bottled wines, and local house wine from local vineyards. For dessert, yogurt with "sweet of the spoon" (pieces of fruit in syrup) is served, made by local producers and fine raki (tsikoudia).
