Haven't been here in quite awhile. Decided to give it a try with friends. Our twenty-something waitress was very friendly, polite and just delightful. Coffee cup was never empty & food was delivered in short order. Eggs cooked as requested with a plentiful side of ham & potatoes. Potatoes were just OK. Everything else was good.

Food was fresh, serving sizes were more than adequate. The staff stopped by to check frequently. Souvlaki was quite good. We are there twice as a family member was in a nearby hospital. The owner also stopped by to check on us. I would recommend this restaurant.

We recently visited this place for breakfast. The food was very good, and the service was good as well. I love their greek food, and I ordered a gyro breakfast. It was excellent. We had a nice talk with the lady, who I thought was one of the owners. She was extremely nice and shared some of the history of... More

service was awful for being so dead. the waitresses seemed miserable, and I had to wait nearly 20 minutes for someone to come take my order once I was seated. they indeed price gouge, hence the title. I mean seriously $1.50+ for a side of Tzatziki without even telling me it would cost extra!?!? Surprised you didn't charge me for... More

We were seated by a welcoming hostess. Ordered breakfast items at 1300. Cooked very well other than potatoes which for some might have been a bit overdone. Server was friendly and very well mannered. Service was not hurried yet efficient. De Caf coffee was freshly brewed as requested. Greek dessert to go was delish.

Good breakfast place! Lots of options, large portions, good service, good coffee. Serves traditional egg, bacon, sausage and pancake dishes as well as incorporating a mix of Greek-style dishes into the breakfast dishes, such as gyro or souvlaki options.

This is one of our favorite local places to eat. The people there, including Dora, are just about like family. They have taken such good care of us over the years and it's our go-to spot. If you want to taste something spectacular, try the Corn Beef Hash omelette. It's one of the best things I've ever eaten!

Waitress dropped off our food and disappeared. I ordered mousakka for $15.00. It was cold and the potato layer was raw. I finally flagged another waitress who offered to send it back but my dinner partner had already finished, so I asked for the check. She didn't adjust the price. When I brought it to her attention she said there... More
