Although we came at a busy time, our server was very attentive and our food was excellent. I particularly recommend the suvlaki. Don't use the menu on the Trip Advisor site. It's not current, so go to the restaurant's website.

Very good breakfast. Couldn't finish all of it. Good service. But the best part was the owner(?). He was very funny, and accomodating. He made a stressful day a little better.
