This may be the best Greek Restaurant in the state. The food is always excellent. Traditional breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or the Greek options (always my choice at any meal)

If there is a 'Most Successful Business in Florence' contest, Mt. Athos would be the hands-down winner! This bustling cafe serves traditional Greek dishes and...hamburgers! No Greek beer, but many delicious craft beers and ales are on tap. The lamb & beef gyro was delicious.
