Great service, waitress kind to our pre-schooler. Large, delicious pancake breakfasts with endless coffee. Sit by a window and watch the world go by, and Spike Lee come in for his bagle and coffee to go.

Great Greek omelet and grits. Quick service on a busy Sunday morning. Old style NY corner restaurant/diner. Cheap eats!

I looked in vain for "lunch specials" on the menu. Maybe I missed them. I don't know. But I settled for the chicken souvlaki ($7.50), "Disco Fries" ($5) and a grape Snapple ($1.75). I would have liked a lamb souvlaki or gyro, but I only...More

We love the staff and food of Academy. They serve standard diner fare with a few greek specialties. Too bad they aren't open for dinner or late-night. Fast delivery too.
