Been going to the Athens Cafe for years. Mostly do breakfast but they are good any time of day. Mexican owned but the menu is American food forward. Consistently good food and good service, and the prices are reasonable. Another good old small town Cafe.

Went there on a Friday night, but wasn't at all crowded. Restaurant interior could use a makeover. Was dated and rundown. Food was good. Service was maybe a 3 out of 5. Were seated quick as well as served fast. But had to wait a...More

Really good breakfast. Have gone there for breakfast for many years. Usually order from menu, but have eaten the buffet. Both are consistently outstanding. Good service too.
