“Very Good Food and Wine at Very Good Prices”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We went there for a late lunch today for the first time and were delighted. They had many tasty specials and the two entrees we had were very good. The pricing is great. The entrees come with a soup or salad and are in the $9-10 range. Besides the regular American fare there are several Greek dishes. The service is prompt and attentive. We loved it and will be back.

“Good food, good prices”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Had breakfast there and it was very good. Comfortable seating, quick and friendly service and nice portions of good food. I ordered biscuits and gravy with a scrambled egg. Unlike other places they give you a portion choice. That I liked very much.

Lots of choices on the menu. Usually busy on sundays, locals really like this place. Good food. Love their breakfast sandwiches.

“Lunches are a WOW!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Absolutely HUGE lunch menu - way too many things to choose - you end up with a mouth watering short wait for your food!
On a serious note, this place is really full in the Winter season, and the stack of diners having a short wait know it's all about the food and no-nonsense good service. In the Summer months, we locals have the place to ourselves. Not that we don't love the winter Floridians, but the summer pace is a bit more to my liking.

For lunch - don't pass up the Greek selections. This is the best Greek salad in the area - add the Gyros is you want it more authentic. And for a menu cross-over, the Greek Quesadilla is an unusual treat.

Bottomless tea glasses and coffee cups, and a smiling and busy wait staff round out the deal. One of the best in its class in SW Florida!
