This is one of my favorite spots in Buffalo for breakfast - huge portions, perfect eggs every time, and the coffee does not stop flowing! Great stop after visiting the park, the zoo, or Northpark theater. Open early and late, so it's great for a meal or snack. Prices are very reasonable, portions are great. Alcohol is served, and they... More

Good for breakfast/brunch/burgers. Beyond that I don't know. I'd been there before. Good for groups with diverse dining desires.

My husband and I decided to split the specialty platter in order to get a little taste of everything. The mousaka was good, the beef Souvlaki was... More

My first time ever there what a great experience. Went there for a late breakfast on Sunday Morning/Afternoon. My friend who lives in Buffalo picked the place to eat. We got there around 12 noon and we were greeted by very friendly and upbeat employees. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Once seated a waitress was... More
