Consistent food and pleasant service

We have dined here for years and the food is consistently well prepared. Never, had a bad meal. The signature pita (AP) is very good. If the Belgian Waffle maker is hot be sure to try them!

Always good food and service, clean, lots of menu options, good coffee and breakfast specials. Breakfast seems to be cooked in less butter for a healthier option.

Athenian Coney Island is constantly winning awards for their quality of food and service. And they should. I am a regular here because of how nice the management keeps this place and how friendly and kind the wait staff is. I come probably once a week. The food is always hot. Always comes on time. Always tastes great. It is... More

My mother used to come here when she was young and now whenever we are in town we always love coming here. They have recently updated the entire restaurant and it looks great! Glad they have not allowed the place to date too much and are keeping everything fresh! They make an awesome Greek salad!!

Driven by this place for years - finally went in for breakfast. Excellent food and service. I had the Eggs Benedict - eggs were perfectly poached. Coffee was good - but served in giant latte cups that took up too much space on the tiny table, and $2.50 for a cup of regular coffee seemed excessive. Waitress was very friendly.

breakfast good, and salads and lunches good, not come much for dinner. nothing fancy, nice to sit outside when it is warm. A fair amount of hub bub inside but not overwhelming. Seems like the staff cares.

The food was good but the atmosphere was unprofessional. The cooks in the kitchen were playing rap music at 7am and it had very inappropriate language. The waitress was rude once we decided We wanted something else to drink other than the nasty warm tap water we were given. I won't be back

Horrible waitress. 10 minutes to be addressed after ordering coffee first. Refill; yeah got up and poured my own. Sent two out of three meals back. Still bad the second time. Never saw the waitress again until she brought the check (too busy talking in the waitstation). The check was wrong. Only kids working. I'll go see the owner tomorrow.
