Went in because I was on the way to another Greek food restaurant and got tired of walking in the cold. Besides, my gut was growling. Not a fancy place - and quite an eclectic crowd. The owners seem to be from the old country - and they keep a close eye on the operation - and the quality of... More

This is a casual and delicious eatery on K Street in downtown Sacramento which is popular with the office worker lunch crowd. There are many tables inside. You order at the counter and are called by number for pick-up. Please try the Mediterranean lunch box (see online menu for details; you can order online too). It is my favorite salad... More

This is a good place if you are in hurry and want to just eat quickly. They don't have much choice though. The chicken dish is always the same way done. A bit oily though, the vegetable dishes are ok but not really that great. Over all it's ok.

I go to this café at lunch time. It is close to my office and convenient. The restaurant has a lunch buffet and it is a good value. That said, the food is ok but not memorable. I have had the gyro and it is strange

Crest Cafe is a located in a nice space adjacent to the historic Crest Theater on the K Street mall in downtown Sacramento. The cafe draws a good sized lunch crowd, and seems particularly popular with State office workers. You either order menu items from the counter and they call your number to pick it up, or you order the... More

This is a good place to meet friends for lunch. The buffet was excellent with plenty of meat and vegetarian options.

If you find yourself in Downtown Sacramento / K Street around lunch and feel like something lite; this is the place. Very good lite Greek/Med menu with traditional options. A favorite of mine are the Greek Nachos. Service is fast and friendly and you get a lot for your money.

We came upon the restaurant by accident. The food looked good and smelled great. Had the chicken kabob with salad. Excellent! I'll go back for it. The chicken had great flavor and just the right spices. The restaurant was clean and comfortable.
