I don't eat a ton of Greek food but I enjoyed what they offered. I would recommend giving them a shot if you enjoy Greek food.

I love Cafe Athens so much my husband begs me to try someplace different. The chicken gyro is simply outstanding. I always say I would work there for free if only they would teach me how to make that moist, flavorful chicken. Hands down best french fries in the world. Generous portions. Wonderful, moist, delicious flat bread. Have never been... More

I have been to Cafe Athens twice now and I was not disappointed I have been to Loveland and Ft. Collins locations everything is good. I would say go in hungry because the portion size is big and worth my hard earned bucks. Like Schwarzenegger said " I'll be back"

Great Greek food, fresh salads, hot meats and kebabs are all freshly cooked. We do lunch there on a regular basis when in Fort Collins. Great service and very clean. The seats in the booths are a bit hard but all in all it is first class. Word of warning, avoid the Hummus Trio on the menu, the Hummus is... More

I'll admit first that I am not a Greek food aficionado, so I can't speak to it's level of authenticity. We went here with some family members who eat here regularly. The menu was varied and included lots of different options, even providing multiple options for one family member who is on a vegan/low sugar diet. I ordered the spicy... More

Cafe Athens is one of my very favorite places to eat. It's a casual place with outstanding Greek food. They have a dessert called Galo Pie that is absolutely delicious. It's often packed at lunch. They've recently opened a second restaurant in Centerra (Loveland), but this original one is still the best.

Went with a party of 12. Service was pretty good but they had to be reminded twice they a couple of items were left off orders. Food was only average. We are used to true Greek food and this simply did not come up to that level. Should have expected that when one side of the menu was American &... More

Great gyros and greek plates, especially for the area. Difficult to find quality mediterrean food in colorado and this def fits the bill. Decent portion sizes, quick services. Always quickly attended to. Eat here probably more than I should.

I was so excited when Cafe Athens opened several years back, bringing a full-service Greek restaurant to Fort Collins. Since then, we have visited many times. Food is always consistently prepared and delicious in flavor; quantity of food is plentiful. Service staff are always pleasant; delivery of food is quite fast. If you're in the mood for a gyros sandwich... More

In a shopping plaza, you don't expect great quality food. Cafe Athens breaks that mold by serving great gyros, moussaka, pastitio, greek coffee and baklava and other Greek goodies that are well prepared, authentic and reasonably priced. Good Greek beer, a great atmosphere- what's not to like.
