I have heard that there is a unique coffee culture in Thessaloniki. Is this true?

As a coffee enthusiast, I'm really excited to explore this aspect of the city. Could anyone share recommendations for must-visit cafes in Thessaloniki? I'm interested in places that offer a unique ambiance, excellent coffee, and perhaps some local pastries or snacks.

Additionally, I'd love to learn more about traditional Greek coffee and how it's different from what I'm used to. Are there any specific local coffee specialties I should try?

Also, any tips on the best times to visit these cafes or specific neighborhoods known for their coffee spots would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
