I have been going to the Atlas for years, and I honestly can say I have never had a bad meal. We just had a company breakfast, in support of United Way, The Atlas contributed toward the cause,Thank you. I had a great meal,as always. For lunch try the Enchiladas, my favorite. Great service, get there early for lunch or... More

Love coming to the Atlas Cafe however, it is quite busy so if you're looking for intimate not sure what time slot works. Ordered the warm beet salad. It was delicious, however I think it would be much better with more beets. I think it had 7 slices. Also, there should be an option without the potato slices. Yes, the... More

I'm not sure if I missed something- this place came highly recommended. I arrived to a ver busy place (good sign). The wine list was ok... but not priced for ok wine. I tried an appie that was flavourless... The menu was all over the place and tried too hard to be unique. I wanted to like this place. I... More

I started going there when they first opened about 15 years or more ago and the food just keeps on getting better all the time. The thing about this business is the food is so consistent and is made to perfection. The owners are they same people from the start and have been great. I would recommend going there to... More

The food was great, as usual. The staff was polite and we only had to wait a couple of minutes before we were seated. We took our daughter there for her birthday and the service was quick. I love the atmosphere of this type of restaurant, my husband not so much. It is a busy place with lots of bustle... More

Went there for lunch and because their portions are quite large, my friend and I asked if we could split an order. The response was friendly and accommodating. We were given separate plates and the order, a Greek salad and spanakopita, was placed between so we could share easily. The food is excellent - fresh and tasty and plated well.

Our local friends suggested Atlas Cafe. The service was good and the menus had lots of choices. There were several specials. Three of us had the fish tacos and they were very good. I appreciated the fact that the portion size was reasonable-enough but not too much.

It was not very busy when we were there for breakfast, but it needed quiet a while before it was served. The server was very friendly and made sure we have everything we needed. I had Lox on a bagel, but lox or gravlax for me means salmon cured in a sugar, salt, dill mix. what I got was cold... More
