Decent food but service has been lacking

I’ve visited Café Athens for lunch and dinner many times over the last several years and I can’t say I’ve ever truly had a bad experience there. Overall, the place looks clean and has a fresh, casual feel to it. It’s well lit and has plenty of seating both at the bar and at booths/tables. Café... read more

I love Cafe Athens. The food is tasty, beer is cold, and atmosphere sunny and pleasant. The wait staff and managers are very friendly. Large portions and sampler platters are enough to share. My two children and I ordered the Sampler Platter along with the Greek Salad - it was plenty to share. The pita bread is warm and soft,... More

Go hungry and leave satisfied. And likely with a carry out box for your leftovers. Athens Cafe is a very reliable Greek restaurant with typical Greek decor--mural, statues, vibes, etc. The bar and cash register is at the front of the restaurant which can be a bit loud and distracting if seated beside them. The good is first-rate. Dressings and... More

I've always heard good things about Cafe Athens and so the SO and I stopped in for lunch this past Saturday. He had the hot & spicy original gyro with fries and I had the original gyro with spinach rice. The gyros were great! He decided to opt for the regular next time as the spiciness seemed a little out... More

Located in a strip mall on the South end of Fort Collins, close to the Council Tree Library, Target and various other cafes and shops. Rather large dining area with tables and booths. During lunchtime the din can get rather loud, but that attests to the quality of the food. The menu has a variety of items to choose. Gyros... More

Just off Ziegler road in a shopping center, the Cafe Athens offers a wide variety of favorite Greek food including Gyros, lamb kabobs, and other. We actually used the takeout option as there was a concert going on just behind the restaurant in a section of the shopping center area used for local activities. Very pleasant way to dine and...

I have been here several times. The Gyros (Year Rows) are really good. I haven't had anything that wasn't super tasty. I highly recommend Café Athens

This cafe serves American cuisine as well as Greek. I have eaten here several times, always choosing Greek fare. The falafel with feta is very good as is the dolma. Give this cafe a try when you are in the mood for good Greek fare.

Probably the best hummus we've ever had in a restaurant. Gyro was prepared well and tasty. My lamb kabob was tender and salad tasty. The pita bread was warm, soft and tender. Very impressive for 'fast food.'

We have never had a bad meal. Food is always excellent and prepared with a few tweeks to the Value Meal Gyros sandwich we always order. We are so happy with this meal that we do not order anything else. The food at other tables when we see it go by looks very good. Their servers, especially Brendon provides such... More
