I had a lunch meeting here and enjoyed the food. I had the lamb souvlaki sandwich and asked them not to put fries in the sandwich. I think fries do not belong inside a sandwich. The sandwich was fine, nothing extraordinary. I didn't care for the roasted tomatoes in it as they were very strong tasting and overwhelmed the rest... More

Third Place Books is my favorite bookstore in Seattle (and there are so many great ones to choose from!), and now I'm happy to say that I finally got around to eating in Vios Cafe which is located inside the bookstore. The atmosphere is perfect - relaxed and light and comfortable. A perfect spot for lunch. The menu is Mediterranean... More

Stopped in for Breakfast, It was an absolutely delicious handmade croissant with ham and cheese. Such a great assortment to choose from and a fab latte!

First of all, this in a bookstore, which is awesome to begin with! The servers at Vios are always very helpful and friendly to me, even though I have to ask a lot of questions about the food because of some food sensitivities. The food is always delicious and very fresh-tasting.

Just this past Monday I had ordered the Greek lamb wrap to go thinking that of course lunch would be great as breakfast I ordered a few weeks ago.Sadly,the land was supposed to cooked "medium well" as per the young lady and the restaurant manager I spoke to over the phone who very graciously offered to have another sandwich or...

I ordered the lamb souvlaki plate and it was delicious and filling. The lettuce was shredded, which would make it great on a sandwich, but was hard to eat neatly with a fork. The dressing was very good, though. The lamb pieces on the skewers were small, but tender with delicious seasoning. The tzatsiki sauce was delicious and makes a... More

Whether you want lunch or just a quick cuppa, the greeting is always warm and the service efficient. And if all you want is a slow coffee or tea and a place to catch up with a friend, you won't feel anybody wants to move you along. We enjoyed the creamy onion soup, and an orzo salad.

This place is right down the road from my sister's house - so needless to say we've visited a few times and always leave very happy/stuffed. The menu is the perfect size: small, which means the things that they do, they do right. A lot of authentic Greek dishes mixed with American tastes. If you come here and only try... More

A cross between Greek and Casual American. I always find something here that works. Normally I'm not a fan of Greek food but Vios is decent. Prices are correct for what you get.

In Seattle for work I had some time to use up on a quiet Sunday and visited a number of bookstores. I arrived in the late afternoon to give myself time for book browsing, a coffee with a good book, and dinner. After a few busy days working, this was an excellent way to relax. Not only did I enjoy... More
