Super friendly staff. Quaint little spot. After driving in from the Midwest I was craving seafood but once I saw the gyro and found out the owner was Greek I was sold. The food is awesome and leave room for baklava

Nothing great to so and nothing really negative to say either. It was your everyday average breakfast and service.

... but their daily special of gyro sliders appeared to be undercooked. Pair that with a side of fries which appeared to be overcooked, that is, they didn't pierce with a fork very well and most of the time broke into two or more pieces.

On the table was a tent that listed some of their specialty drinks - I wish I hadn't been traveling home, I would have like to have tried a couple. If you are staying at one of the hotels on Ocean View, I could definitely see walking to this location for Happy HOur or dinner!

We were in the area looking for apartments. 905 was the only cafe/lunch spot open in the area on a Friday. We stopped in and were greeted quickly and cheerfully. It's very small and has a handful of tables. Our order was taken promptly and we were served rather quickly. The placed smelled a little funky upon entering but we... More

My wife and I have been going to 905 for about the last five years and it has steadily declined in service and quality of food. Prices are up and portions are down and to make things worse there is generally only one waitress for the entire restaurant. Last night's meal, Greek Night, was disappointing. Service was slow since one... More
