Shredded fresh feta, tender strips of chicken on a huge bed of lettuce. Homemade dressing, pita and Tzatsi sauce. Garlic humas with pita bread tri's. stuffed chicken with spinach. I could go on and on. Best Greek place we have ever eaten.

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

I ordered the smoked salmon omelette with feta and it was probably the best omelette I have ever had. Would definitely recommend it!

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

Went to dinner with the family and looking forward to some good greek food. The saganaki was gooey goodness! Instead of frying the cheese as is tradition, this was melted in the broiler. 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
