Five Star Day the beloved Athens establishment closed its doors this week. It will be missed by many. How I long for their fried green tomatoes, mac n cheese, and meatloaf. Hopefully, it will be replaced by something even more delicious!

First off, the people who work at Five Star Day Cafe were extremely pleasant and fun to chat with. One of the workers has drawn Alan Turing* on the board and my companion looked at it for a moment, then said "Is that Alan Turing?" The worker who drew the picture, a friendly red-haired girl with bright eyes, suddenly burst... More

We popped in here while downtown Athens as we were told it was one of the places you HAVE to eat while in Athens. We sat out on the patio on the street and had a nice view of the arches at the university. The staff was super friendly, funky and fun. The menu was great - lots of good... More

You can't beat this place for the price and the freshness of the food. Eclectic and the perfect college town place to eat. No hassles, laid back....great location.

This place is small so groups of 4 or less are best but I think it is worth a stop. They make their own delish salad dressings and their trout fillet is what I always get. So yummy.

Five Star Day was my favorite place to eat when I lived in Athens, and as a visitor, remains so! They mainly offer soul food/Southern food with some other options as well. If you've never tried that sort of food, this is a great place to do it. My favorites are the chicken and dumplings, the trout, the mac and... More

Southern and local foods were evident in the menus at dinner on the eastside. Hope to visit the Broad St location for lunch soon. Food preseneted is more healthy than vast majority of what your...

My daughter (UGA student) and I enjoyed this cafe. I dont love restaurants that make you order at the front counter, not much room to stand in line, have to wait for a table. I prefer a server. They could easily convert to this level of service and be a better restaurant. You could still take ticket to front to... More

Unique atmosphere, good food, good service, good value... Simple as that! My husband LOVED the bacon, egg and cheesburger. We'd visit again, for sure!

We have eaten here a number of times and Five Star always comes through with great food and, somewhat unexpectedly, very good service after you order at the counter. In fact, the service was better than we have have had at some "order from the table" restaurants. While everything is very good, folks in our party particularly enjoyed the fried... More
