Met two friends at Effie's place for lunch. Although busy, the waitress was quick, competent and polite. Our food was very good and couldn't really ask for more. I am planning to try dinner at Effie's very soon. Parking can sometimes be a challenge when they're very busy and you may have to park on one of the side street... More

After a day of travel and visiting sites we decided to go to Effie's. It sounded cute and I had nieces with me that wanted to try something new. Effie's didn't turn out to be cute, but we were glad we stopped. Effie's is a diner with a wide selection of food including some great comfort dishes. There are a... More

I visited this popular diner-type restaurant for the first time. I went on a snowy morning for breakfast. What a lovely place. Neat and clean. Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. I was treated like an old friend and long time regular. The service was incredibly fast and the food was hot and tasty. I will definitely be going back.

Effie's is a Greek diner type place with lots of good Greek Food. I had a platter with falafel, hummus, babaganoush, and tabbouleh. There are lots of other good choices and some very yummy desserts including baklava.

My husband 's aunt recommended this restaurant. Four of us went for supper on a Saturday night. Our meals included a Cobb salad, and chicken pita, baked scroll and a turkey dinner. All were very good as was the chocolate pie we had for dessert. It is not that large of a place and seems rather cramped. There is nothing... More

Have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner there in the past (a few years ago). Decided to try it again for Sunday brunch. The place was packed, but it was well worth the 15+ minute wait. We didn't have anything too fancy this time. Pancakes - walnut for my wife and apple & cinnamon for me. Wasn't what I expected -... More

Went out to breakfast with family of 5. Busy place, but we were lucky to be seated right away. Great variety of breakfast options. If we are in the area again, we would definitely stop by again.

I have been coming to Effie's for breakfast a few times a week for over a year now and I am NEVER disappointed. The staff is friendly and nice and the food is excellent, fresh and well prepared. It can get crowded at times on the weekend but it's definitely worth the wait!!
