We like Mediterranean food. This is the place to find your yoghurt and cucumber sauce. We took a Gyro and made a sandwich out of it with a Greek Salad. The salad was delicious as was the gyro with the yoghurt and cucumber, but together it was too much. The service was very friendly and the server was quite helpful.... More

Great for a quick meal. Lots of choices, but I enjoyed the appetizer plate as a meal. Quite filling for one person!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Athens Café. The café is small in an outdoor mall setting. We were seated immediately. We both had the gyro plate that included a side and a drink. The gyro was very fresh and hot. I'm not really into French fries, but they were outstanding. Thanks to the waiter for making the suggestion.... More

This place is one if my favorites especially for a late lunch. A good glass of wine, some dolmates (stuffed grapeleaves), and maybe some chicken, or a gyro, or spanakopita! Love this here! Fantastic for dinner too and doesn't cost you a week's wages.

We like Mediterranean food and Cafe Athens won't disappoint you! We enjoyed feta queso appetizer (a unique dish in our experience...and very good)and gyros. It has sort of an upscale fast food but full service.

We visit here periodically when we're craving tzatziki and gyros. The food is consistently good and service tends to be friendly. They're the best gyros in northern Colorado, although I wouldn't compare the food to what you can find in the "big city" or anywhere in Europe. But they're definitely good enough to sate that craving for Greek food. To... More

We try to go here every time we're in Fort Collins. Everything's delicious, but the souvlaki/lamb gyros platter is my favorite since it has basically everything you'll need there. Also check out the flaming cheese and desserts.
