Small and cozy. Service was very good, if a bit slow. Greek salad was delicious and inexpensive. Would definitely visit again.

This place packs a lot of good Greek/Mediterranean food into a tiny cafe. Decor is rustic modern. There are a couple of huge Greek "artifacts" on the walls that add a lot of interest. Service was only okay, but the food was great.

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at the cafe. The food was very tasty, served hot and in good size portions. The appetizer of warm flat bread with homemade basil hummus was outstanding! The chef created this hummus and we were the first to sample it! If you go, try one of the Greek Beers - they go well with... More

Stopped in for an early dinner before a concert, and only people in the place. I ordered Spanakopita and Greek fries, while my partner ordered the Greek Feast. When My plate arrived with four Spanakopita triangles, I was a bit surprised and asked the server if that was the appetizer or the entree, and was told "the entree". The appetizer... More

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation and the positive reviews. It was average to poor. My husband and I decided to split a Greek salad and a 1/2 Greek chicken. The salad was okay, nothing exceptional. The chicken was very small. It was literally the size of 1/2 Cornish hen. The flavor was okay, but more lemony than... More

We had a mezze platter (following a huge breakfast) which was ample for two. And we tried the lemon rice chicken soup -- great for a winter day. Excellent, friendly service.

We went there for a late lunch and it was delicious! The gyro seemed really lean and it was a great size! Got the Greek fries and they were amazing! I've never went to a Greek place that had Greek fries! Yummmmm

This is authentic Greek restaurant in the area. I took my son there because he had Greek festival at school that day and he performed in a play about ancient Greek. I would like him to finish the day with a nice Greek dinner. We liked the food there and will go back again.

Small and WARM on a winter eve. Helpful but not aggressive service. They were out of several things (eg. Draft beer) but we found plenty to choose from. Had mix of appetizers, very nice.

Great place for lunch, although the service is a little slow. If, like me, you are a small eater, try ordering appetizers instead of a full meal. The food is good with interesting flavors. The greek salad is crisp, although I would prefer just a little less salad dressing.
