Very laid back

Had breakfast there. Asked for over easy eggs, toast and sausage. That's exactly what she delivered. No hassle before breakfast makes me happy.

Had simple Breakfast - eggs, bacon, home fries, toast. Eggs & home fries were tasteless. Service from Pat was below par - left me without coffee for 15 minutes. Bacon was paper thin.

Stopped for the night just down the road from this wonderful find. Great staff, great food, reasonable prices! Authentic greek food, along with a great variety of other offerings, as well as an amazing breakfast. Wonderful spot to unwind after a long day of driving, and have a delicious meal before bedtime. Five stars all the way!!!!

For easy access and lots of seating and space this restaurant beats most others. Good fresh food and deserts to die for. A lot of Greek people dine here which says a lot for the food. Well worth a visit.

Recommended by the hotel clerk, we tried this Greek/Italian spot. It was terrific. Prices were very gentle and the food was excellent. Service was fine and the whole place was just a lovely relaxing atmosphere, w/ very friendly people. Wife had a delicious gyro and the mousakka was to die for. Tops!

We frequent the Acropolis Café for Breakfast on Sunday. It has a good variety of standard breakfasts as well as a Greek Mezze if you are there closer to lunch. The prices are fair for good wholesome food

We had breakfast there a few weeks ago and it was real good. Nice atmosphere, service, very clean and both the omelette and egg breakfast was good. Dinner was very average . My fried cod was just ok. I could have gotten more and paid less in Showmars. My wife had the falafel and said it was too soft and... More

Visited at 12:00 pm on on a Sunday. Very happy to find they were serving breakfast and lunch. Ordered 3 adult meals and one child. The omelette and Eggs Benedict were very good. Breakfast pizza was good size about 12 inch pizza, only for about $9. It also tasted great, very good breakfast pizza. Will definitely return in the future.
