“Greek Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Authentic meal of Pastichio and savory green beans followed by moist rice pudding. Outstanding seasoning. This delightful little cafe should be on everyone's list to try. We'll definitely return for more!

“Authentic Greek on Mount Vernon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

I had the open gyro and my wife got the grape leaves. She is a caterer so she knows her food and she said hers was delicious. My gyro was messy but that's the sign of a good meal. The manager is always on site and the waitresses are the same which keeps things consistent.

“Wonderful Greek Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Authentic and delicious Greek Food. Offers traditional Greek favorites. A great addition to the Mount Vernon dining experience and conveniently located on the square downtown. Be sure to take home some baklava from the pastry case.

“High point!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

This corner diner location is old as the hills and has morphed innumerable times.
Hurrah for the latest rendition! Authentic Mediterranean menu with the best of Greek and Lebanese food. A pretty makeover that looks new without being pretentious.
The service is really friendly and kitchen staff is on the ball with everything delivered hot and fast.
We sampled all the small items on the menu and finished every bite.
Plate of marinated olives & feta had immense flavor.
The tabbouleh was incredibly fresh and bright with the right tang.
Two different kinds of hummus, both were smooth and savory.
Pork souvlaki, a nice change from the usual chicken and beef.
Tasty sliced gyro meat.
And there was a mountain of freshest pita bread.
All this, with drinks for less than $20, on the square in little Mount Vernon.
Must be magic!
Go now.

“Great Addition to Mount Vernon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Great food in a locally historic building (the former High Restaurant). The gyros and fries make for a great lunch or dinner. The severs are friendly and prompt. If you're in Mount Vernon, make this one of your stops!
