Best Greek salad I ever had with lettuce. Service was prompt, the people friendly and a very relaxing atmosphere. Excellent place for lunch

Cluttered inside but has a charm of its own. A good breakfast. Coffee was average. Old typewriters, plants and assorted stuff inside - if clutter bothers you don't try Phi's. Other than that it was average to good.

I love this place. The french fries and gravy are the only ones I eat which remind me of how delicious they were when I was a teenager. The servers are super nice. A great family restaurant. All kinds of different foods. Cozy, quaint and REAL. I'm actually getting take out from there in an hour. :)
