We visit here each time we come to Athens. The food is different but good and the atmosphere is spot on. Try to sit outside if possible. And PLEASE get the white chocolate cheesecake.

This is a great place to eat! The staff is friendly and very helpful. It is a busy, noisy place. They fill up very quickly. I recommend getting there right at 5 when they open or make a reservation.

While visiting Athens we stopped here for lunch. It is a store front restaurant located directly in the downtown area. Don't let the location stop you from trying this one. We had one of the best lunches ever, crab cakes and chicken sandwich. The food...More
