Cafe Athens is one of our main dining destinations, being that we live close by. The food is consistently delicious and the service is always good! I tend to always get a gyro or a gyro platter, which never disappoints. Thanks for always providing a great experience. We will see you again very soon!

For a very casual taste of Greece and the Middle East, no better or more delicious spot could be found. The special "fries" received the "best of" last year and the gyro and falafel meals are the best.

We ate there as a family. The Greek gyros were great.. we ordered traditional. The gyro only is about $7, the meal that comes with side and soda is $10. Gyro comes with either lamb or chicken (lamb is delicious), lettuce, tomatoes, pita bread. The fries are coated and crunchy. Sodas have free refills. If you order the colossal gyro,... More

We really enjoyed the food at a recent Friday dinner at Cafe Athens: my wife thought the falafels were some of the best she had ever had and my mousaka plate was tasty and generous, with a little bonus of gyro meat on the side. And I enjoyed a tall frosty local beer to wash it all down. The service... More

Our party of four enjoyed this unique Greek restaurant. The lamb was quite tender and moist. The Greek salad vegetarian, beautifully presented and very filling. Although located in a shopping center amidst several other restaurants, Cafe Athens is far from the usual strip mall eatery. We were seated promptly, well attended to, and enjoyed the dining experience very much. Beer... More

Been there five or so times in the last 4 years. Consistently good. Good staff, quality dishes, good value. Try the Gyros platter.

We have been traveling and were so tired of burgers and pizza. We were trying to find something different that was also a good value. We found this place and loved it! Everything was fabulous! The restaurant was also very clean and we had a friendly waiter. I wish we didn't live so far and could eat here more often.

I've been coming to this restaurant during the lunch/afternoon hours for over 2 years. Hands down, this is the most consistent eating experience I have had in the Fort Collins areas. Usually, the first 6 months are great and then the place slides... NOT HERE!!! My husband and I love this place for multiple reasons: fast service, friendly servers, amazing... More
