Two eggs toast and potatoes are $2.99 before 9 a.m. And the potatoes are real. The people are very friendly and it's a cozy atmosphere. If you get there after 9 a.m., the prices are still not that bad.

Ive been to Denver a couple of times over the years and stopping here is always a must on my list of things to do while in town. Great little place with friendly service. I love their gyros!! and their spanakopita is great. Prices are fair for the quantities you get.

We found this cafe while in Denver for a week of tests at National Jewish Health. We've eaten dinner here, as well as breakfast, and everything was excellent and at a great price. Large portions, great service, and a very friendly small town neighborhood atmosphere. They have a wide menu selection with all your Greek favorites, plus hamburgers, sandwiches, pancakes....and...

This is not the best Greek food I've ever had, it was average. But for the price I was satisfied with what I ordered. I won't be in a hurry to return though, they could work on customer service and cleanliness a bit better.

Took a friend for lunch who had never had a gyro. Mistake to go here. service was slooooow, food was cold and dried-out. Waitress didn't offer to refill sodas. $12.00 per person for A soda, small cold gyro and stale fries. Got to watch the waitress eat her lunch behind the counter-chewed with her mouth open. Some bleach-blonde teeny hawked... More

Good gyro meat, excellent tzatziki. The spanikopita was also very good. Everything else was just mediocre. Their salads are watery and bland, and the pork souvlaki was terrible- overcooked and tough. The taramasalata was cut with a lot of mashed potatoes, not good at all. This place also does all day breakfast, diner food, and mexican. They seem to try... More

This is a great place! A clean, bright cafe that serves great Greek food at reasonable prices. The Lemon Soup, Greek Salad, and Mousaka were all fresh and delicious. I thought the baklava for dessert was good but not great. I will be back to try as many things on the menu as I can!
