Unique and tasty Greek food

Brought the kids here during lunch and as always this place is packed! It's no wonder. The food is a treat to the tastebuds. Greek Quesadilla....YUM! Pita with that delightful Tzatziki Sauce :) The wait staff was busy but attentive and made sure to double check my list of allergies.

Stopped in for lunch after 1:00 pm, Wednesday 8/19. After taking our beverage order, we were ignored for another 15 minutes. Waitress was VERY rude, inattentive, spent far too much time in back corner of restaurant at cashier talking- tables and clients not waited on- never asked if we wanted dessert- ignored us through our meal and after our plates...

Ate here with two long time dear friends. Suggested by one friend who had been here before saying the fries were really good. I had a falafel gyro with fries and it was delicious. Then we all shared dessert at the suggestion of the waiter. Galo pie. Oh so yummy. The wait staff was awesome and so nice to let... More

We always go here for Greek food in Loveland area. Big portions, so go hungry. Quick friendly service.

I wanted to expand out of the "typical" restaurant places for my birthday dinner and settled on Café Athens after convincing my family that new food can always be good food. It was a little hard to find as it is not on the main strip where all the shops are located. It is on the west side (back side)... More

Cafe Athens is located in an upscale (for Loveland) shopping center and I had expectations that they didn't meet. There are other, nicer restaurants within walking distance and even a brewpub that is friendlier with just as much background noise. Cafe Athens tables are set close together and the interior resembles a fast food outlet more than a fine restaurant.... More

My friend and I who are fans of Greek food went here for my birthay. We were so disappointed; the acoustics were terrible so we could not visit at all. She ordered the combo plate and I ordered the gyro plate. The food was only "passable" and the gyro plate was covered with "fillers" of salad and bread. The combo... More

There are typically two types of ethnic restaurants - authentic and cheap imitations. The operators of authentic restaurants cook from scratch using recipes from the old country. They take pride in their food and service, and are usually busy. Not so much Café Athens. I thought that, being located in an upscale "lifestyle" shopping plaza, the place would be good.... More

We had trouble finding the restaurant. Even when we called, their directions were off. The restaurant is on the western side, facing I 25. It is between Barnes and Noble and Dick's Sporting Goods. It is not on the side with all the shops. The food was good. I had a gyro that was the proper spiciness. I just wish... More

We both ordered Gyros with my choice spicy (jalapeños). Quantity, taste and freshness were excellent. Priced right and service was quick and attentive. We arrived a little after 11:00 and by noon the Cafe was nearly full with locals. Decor welcoming but nothing special. Would be a good place for families with kids.
