First time we ever went to this gem of a diner. Great tasting breakfast at an affordable price. Staff was very friendly and the wait was only 10 minutes on a Sunday morning.

Excellent home style cooking. Very good food. Large portions. Have eaten lunch here as well as breakfast on other occasions. Family in area recommended this restaurant/diner. Up on a hill, a little difficult to find, but well worth the trip. Greek diner.

Great old fashioned diner set up, with super friendly staff and great service. I ordered a special Crabcake eggs Benedict and it was spectacular. The hollandaise sauce was very savory and the poached eggs were perfect! The homemade Wheat toast was some of the best I've had and everyone enjoyed there choices very much. I highly recommend this spot if... More

Stopped in on our drive back from Montreal. It's right off route 89. Dated decor but fresh, tasty food. Breakfast is served all day. We tried the gyro platter (served with salad, pita and spanakopita), Greek salad with lamb, grilled cheese, home fries and French toast. Everything was good but the Greek food was outstanding. Prices are reasonable.

I had the Vermonter skillet. This is a lot of good food. Old style diner with really good food. Recommend stopping by with a big appetite.

Old- fashioned diners are always fun and this one is no exception, right down to the red (sometimes shabby) booths, stools and a back room with tables. Service is friendly and food is tasty enough. There is an extensive breakfast menu as well as sandwiches and salads, etc. for lunch. The food is fresh but ordinary, prices are reasonable and... More

Trying these older diners is always fun. Here the service is good and the food options for breakfast can vary. On this trip my wife had the biscuits and gravy which consisted of homemade biscuits and a thick and tasty sausage gravy with home fries on the side. I tried the Denver Burrito special of the day. The tortilla wrap... More

We've eaten at Athens several times for breakfast. The atmosphere is one of a typical diner. Situated on top of a small hill, the dining room is bright and sunny in the morning. Food here is excellent and the service staff are very friendly. Service time is a little longer than normal but the food is well worth the wait.... More
