This is a busy, small eatery where everybody treats you as if you are their best friend. Clean, safe and quick food, very ample portions and a sunny atmosphere. Maria, the owner and chief hostess, runs it like clockwork but always has time to greet you and make you are satisfied. Everything from Greek Omelets to pastrami burgers are available... More

Just off exit 125 I-80, this neighborhood gem is a fabulous breakfast find. The Greek omelets were gorged with feta and the French toast was to die for.. Service was over the top and the place is super clean.

the atmosphere, service, and food have taken a dive. they built an incredibly ugly, dark 'bar' area, that doesn't fit in at all, yet left the 70s decor of brass, frosted glass, and ugly carpet in the dining area.

We ski in SLC each winter for a month. We have been to many breakfast places, and this has become our favorite. The bacon is absolutely the best we have found. The eggs are done just right, the hash browns are excellent, the french toast is great. 5 out of 5 stars.

My 3 year old daughter and I came here for lunch today. The decor is a little... grandma's house-y. It's cute. We ordered the lemon-chicken-rice soup, which was pretty good. It wasn't overly salty. It was thick and yummy. My daughter just enjoyed one of the 2 big rolls that came with our soup. After that we got the souvlaki... More

I can't believe there is not more reviews for this place. The food is never a disappointment and you will always be greeted by nice friendly staff. Most of the servers have been there for years. We always enjoy stopping here on the weekends for some yummy food.

My co-worker and I stop here for lunch as often as possible. Maria and Tony make the BEST lemon rice soup, the Best gyros, no chunks of cartilage in the gyro meat. The servers are always fast, smiling and remember what we like! Also Maria makes the BEST Greek pastries. One is called Paximadia, like a biscotti , to dunk... More

My girlfriends and I go here almost weekly. Ran by a seriously sweet Greek family, it's like having your own special family joint to go eat. Even on the busiest days, they sit you pretty quickly, and there is something special about a staff that remembers your order when you come in!
