Went in there famished after walking up to LIC from south Williamsburg. The Gyro was very good, so was the Caesars salad. My wife gad the quesedilla. I'm a sucker for diner-style interiors. Great lunch break

Visited the Dorian Cafe twice on our trip. Great food and service - and reasonably priced. We had smoked salmon on Eggs Benedict, omelettes, Reuben sandwich, and a Belgian waffle. All were excellent.
