We have had everything from breakfast to beef souvlaki dinners. Fish fries are great too. Be sure to plan ahead as Friday's get extremely busy for the fish. Staff is always nice and the owner is present and working all of the time.

I have been eating breakfast at Athenas for over 25 years. You will not leave hungry as there is always plenty on the plate. The service is quick. You can be in and out in 30 minutes if you are in a hurry. The waitresses are pleasant and attentive. On days when I want to stay a little longer to... More

We visit Athena's often for breakfast and/or lunch. Today I had the Polish Sausage and Eggs for breakfast which was very good. Their menu is extensive and they have specials for each day of the week. For lunch, my favorites are their Cream of Broccoli soup (served on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and the Open Chicken Souvlaki (with Greek Dressing).

If you think SUBWAY has a good sub - you're wrong - at least compared to this place. Friendly staff and always clean (can be a bit loud though) - this place has the best sub sandwiches in town! Always fresh rolls - fresh lettuce, tomato and onion and they don't skimp on the meat like most places do. And... More

The food is worth putting up with the crowds and the noise. I guess the crowds and the noise are symptomatic of a great breakfast place. I prefer my breakfast in a quieter location, but the food is delicious. So, it is well worth the visit. My omelet was the best I have had in any restuarutn where they do... More

The food was good. The service was a slow. Slow to refill drinks. Didn't come-back to check on us even once.
