Great restaurant with amazing inside and outside seating often hosting live music. Now it's closed and apparently up for auction ... what happened?

This quiet little oasis is within walking distance of downtown, yet has a quiet garden that will make you feel as though you're in the country. It's just lovely - as is the service, the food and the convenience of location. Give it a try - you'll be glad you did.

Around 5 PM on a Friday there were 10 tables filled with people. The phone was ringing continuously. People coming in for takeout (myself included). There was only 1 waiter. He was having some issues with the register. Waiter was also responsible for making the drinks. He was very polite & trying very hard to meet the demands of some... More

We love Greek food, but this restaurant isn't a totally Greek place. Most of the traditional Greek dishes are in the appetizer section. Some of the entrees are expensive in the $30 plus range. If you want lamb kebabs, you're out of luck. We ate in the courtyard that is kind of charming, ordered 2 glasses of wine and the... More

A large group of us had lunch in the outdoor patio. There was one child and adults who were vegans, vegetarians and omnivores. The menu provided a good variety of choices for all of us. Service was excellent. I'm a vegetarian and my meal was substantial and very tasty.

Just moved in the neighborhood and decide to try his restaurant. Been back 4 times since. Great food for really reasonable price. They have a great price for belongs and mimosas too. Gotta stop in and try this place. The patio is also dog friendly.

I love their chunky gyro meat but service seems to lack whenever (I) we go. I also like their "fire pit" filled patio area. You can always find a warm spot. I feel sorry for the fish in the koi pond. It looks to shallow for such big ones.

Great little Greek Cafe that was within walking distance of where we stayed. Food was good and reasonable priced. Great half-priced wine during the week nights.

We drove past the restaurant earlier in the week. The inviting, Greek, Vegan food sign caught our eye. There was abundant food, beginning with the warm pitas and garlic sauce, beautiful fresh salad and Greek lasagna and Mousaka both with an excellent Vegan Béchamel sauce. We took home half of what was served and enjoyed them for lunch the next... More

The mimosas are a little small but ask them to use a little less orange juice and they are perfect. Didn't have any food there but the ambiance was cute, especially outside. Give it a try and let me know how the food is. :)
