I wonder what we will be expected to pay this year for something as simple as a coffee?
I would take the view that if it is good value I would get more people in, people will always stop where there are other customers already.

Although I do not have a crystal ball, I honestly can't see prices for things such as coffee rising by much, if anything at all.
Yes there will always be places that charge over the top prices for a cuppa, and I suppose there will be a few that will play on the fact that prices here have gone up, and also those who take advantage of a picturesque setting etc. but I think the majority of businesses here in Corfu will absorb the price increases as much as possible to give the best value possible in the difficult circumstances, even if it means the profit margin isn't as large as it has been on previous years. Lets face it, a small profit is better than none at all!!

We live in an island in Greece (not Corfu) and here you can pay anything from 3 euros to 6 euros for 2 Nescafe. A bit annoying when you can buy a tin of Nescafe for less than 6 euros, so you know what a profit they are making. We have cut down on stopping off and having a Nescafe, sit on the terrace at home with one now, unless we are meeting people. If everyone does this then the tavernas will not be taking any more money this year than last.
