Five Star Day the beloved Athens establishment closed its doors this week. It will be missed by many. How I long for their fried green tomatoes, mac n cheese, and meatloaf. Hopefully, it will be replaced by something even more delicious!

First off, the people who work at Five Star Day Cafe were extremely pleasant and fun to chat with. One of the workers has drawn Alan Turing* on the board and my companion looked at it for a moment, then said "Is that Alan Turing?"...More

You can't beat this place for the price and the freshness of the food. Eclectic and the perfect college town place to eat. No hassles, laid back....great location.

Unique atmosphere, good food, good service, good value... Simple as that! My husband LOVED the bacon, egg and cheesburger. We'd visit again, for sure!

We have eaten here a number of times and Five Star always comes through with great food and, somewhat unexpectedly, very good service after you order at the counter. In fact, the service was better than we have have had at some "order from the...More
