service decent, pleasant place, not the cleanest, but adequate if you need a place while at Mayo. Hopefully won't be returning.

Had the oatmeal cake, if you like oatmeal,you will love this, just eat it like oatmeal, covered in milk (comes with) and put the cinnamon sugar butter on it. Kalya is an awesome server who cares. Will be back for sure.

In addition to breakfast served all day, the giros sandwiches with crispy potato chips are the best. Fresh baked pies and national news on the Tvs call you to come back.

I was looking to grab something healthy before my next appointment and Mac's never fails me! Fast and kind voices. Thank You Mac staff! Your kindness is really nice breath of fresh air.

Enjoyed our breakfast. I had the french toast and it was very good. My husband had eggs and pancakes, also very good. Cooked just the way he liked them. Service was good too. We even came back in the evening for dessert. My husband wanted a chocolate malt and it was excellent. The apple pie was very good.

This place has excellent food. I probably would not return, not because of poor service but I don't care to hear servers pandering for tips from other patrons in a loud manor. It makes it very uncomfortable to hear a server whine about not being able to get her kids proper gifts because she hasn't made enough in tips. We... More

The food, the service, the view. Greek owned but not a "Greek Restaurant" only. Food is great, Greek offers plus many others including those they have invented themselves. We make it a habit to stop here every time we are in Rochester. There is a very tall waiter who waits on us the last few time we are there -... More

Huge menu, a lot of dishes are Greek themed. Food is good, think of comfort food. Prices ok. Place is clean and comfortable.
