This place is great! Great value, great food and average service. I could tell that the servers were new to the service industry but they did a great job catering to my friends Vegan needs. I do wish that they were a little more informed of the menu, overall they were great. Must try the homemade Baclava (sorry if im... More

The Athenian Cafe has excellent Greek food, reasonably priced, and huge portions. They are usually busy, but still serve quickly. The gyros and salads are the very best.

I have drove pas the Athenian Cafe several times while in Altoona. I decided to stop with my Fiancee and was pleasantly surprised. The service was great and only out done by the food. I have not had better Mediterranean food and will go back again. The gyros are by far their best item in my opinion.

I stopped here while traveling through Altoona with my daughter. I’m really glad we did! The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We both had a platter that consisted of three smaller portioned entre items. Each was very good. The baklava was outstanding. Being that I will be traveling through Altoona many more times over the next... More

no, it's not the best Greek food I've ever had, but to satisfy my craving for Greek food very well. the best Greek food I had is in a suburb of Tampa, Fl, and don't have the money to travel 1200 miles every time I want Greek food. Athenian Cafe does a great job though. they recently moved, and the... More

My wife and I frequently visit this family owned type Greek establishment. Very good traditional gyro and Greek salad. The baklava is very tasty with plenty of filling. Service is very friendly and prompt. We will continue to visit this place on a regular basis !
