Visited Seattle in August,2013 and we were disappointed to find this favorite had closed. The owners retired after many years on University Ave. Hopefully a new restaurant , just as good, will open in the near future.

Went there for lunch and had an appetizer and an entree plate to share. Everything was delicious. The dolmades were the standout. Hummus was a bit chunky, which we are not used to, but it was good. The chicken skewers has a wonderful grilled, smokey...More

Try the Lamb sausage eggs over easy with potatoes. This delicious meal fortified with Greek coffee and a honey bar powered us through a long day of sightseeing. And aunty is so sweet. You'll know her when you meet her!

The Continental offers straightforward affordable Greek fare, un-complicated. It is a true cafe, and has a wonderful dessert selection, including Galactobourekos (a very tasty, but hard to find custard pastry!) They have Belly dancers now and then. Good service. A good saganaki and a tasty...More

We started to go to this Greek restaurant on "The Ave" near the University of Washington in the late 1960's. In 1974 the present owners bought the restaurant from Greek fellow countrymen and improved on a good thing. My wife and I have been eating...More

This is the restaurant our family meets at for Sunday breakfast or brunch when everyone is in town. The service is always lovely and welcoming. They recognize us but everyone who comes in is treated like family. I like the spinach feta omelet and the...More

To die for souvlaki, greek fries, and eggs over easy! A treat as a diversion from the regular. I've been coming here for years, a wonderful family owned restaurant with consistently good food. Nothing fancy, just a great genuine old diner, the kind with chrome...More
