Description: George's Greek Cafe welcomes you to "a little piece of Greece in Southern California." Our family-owned business is here to provide you with high quality food, craft cocktails, and an authentic Greek dining experience. Our restaurant has remained a favorite among the locals for one reason: we never compromise on our promise to provide fresh and delicious meals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We continue to follow Mama Rodou's recipes, which were passed down to her from her grandmother. We use only the finest imported ingredients, such as first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from Greece and premium, hormone-free, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. We want to extend an open invitation to you to dine at one of our restaurants. Whether you're looking to impress a date with an intimate wine tasting, reconnecting with family over Saganaki Flaming Cheese and lamb chops, or planning the perfect wedding reception for 500 of your closest friends, we are here for you. Come in, and feel like part of the family. OPA!

George's is a highlight on 2nd. If you are lucky you'll be greeted out front by George himself and then treated to a place that feels like home. You can't go wrong with the lamb chops!

“Great Real Greek Food”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Brilliant "real" Greek food. Great salads, Halolumi cheese starter and Gyros to die for, and REAL Greek coffee... What more could an expat Aussie ask for???

“Gyro Fan”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I Love George's location in Lakewood, but I was near 2nd street and decided to give this location a try. The food was just as great. Parking is a problem for this area, but it's fun to walk around and enjoy all the shops. This location is smal, but we were seated quickly for lunch. I'm sure dinner may be another story, but the wait may just be worth it.

“Love!”

I've eaten at both locations in LB and both are awesome. Having been to Greece its one of the only Greek restaurants I'll eat at. They have some pretty decent wines too.
