I found this place while working and staying in Danbury. At first, it looked like a nice place but, once inside, it was extremely nice. The food is excellent and the prices are very fair. I have eaten here many more times while in town and will continue to do so. I like this place very much.

New ownership has made ways for new items on the specials. I missed the specials on my way in, unfortunately. They are now offering gluten-free items. Had I realized I would have tried one. Eggs are always great here. As a New Yorker I like an eggcream once in a while. They do them well here! I look forward to... More

I'm here about 3 times per week. Food is great for the price. I love the Pot Roast. Breakfast is great with many choices. The managers and servers are great and friendly. You can't go wrong here.

Ate her as option to hotel breakfast. Feta omelet was very good, sausage and eggs quite ordinary, devoid of any taste. Sausage links appeared to be just thrown in oil to cook. But what can one expect when looking for a quick breakfast. Service was marginal. Server never checked to see if we were doing okay (place was not busy).... More

The food was exceptional, typical Greek run restaurant that puts effort into tasty, homemade breakfast items like home fries and corned beef hash which had a light cinnamon tang to it. The service was very good, any place can be hit or miss but our waitress kept filling our endless cup of coffee. My wife got the western omelet that... More

The place was super crowded but they got us seated in only a few minutes. Food was good and the corned beef hash was excellent. Service was very good in spite of the crowd. My daughter had a turkey clup and fries and it looked really good, she couldn't finish the club because it was so big.
