“Great lunch, nice inside patio seating”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

This was a great Greek lunch! I had the Chicken and Mozzarella (Kotopita) and half Greek salad. It was fabulous. The portions were just perfect. The lower seating in the restaurant was nice and roomy. The desserts looked fabulous. A coworker got one and devoured it. Wonderful lunch. Will definitely go back.

“This Place Has Pastries!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Great pastries and coffee. The lunch offerings are fine BUT the baked goods rock. It's a nice place to stop for a romantic after dinner coffee.

“Baklava with Walnuts is the Food of the Greek Gods”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

If I was Zeus, I would eat my sweets here. This Greek pastry and coffee shop has some of the best Greek pastry outside of Greece. How do I know this? What makes me an expert? Seven trips to Greece and one to Turkey (cuisines are very similar) that's how.

Previous to today's experience of baklava with black walnuts drizzled with a light and thin honey sauce, the best baklava I had ever had was in Esephus, Turkey, in a corner coffee shop. Today's version was one flaky yet crusty layer of butter dough on top of the other. It was perfectly baked as it was crispy but not dry, golden brown not dark brown and the filling ample but not too much.

A double-shot of Greek coffee, on the side, made this experience both tasty and stimulating. My wife enjoyed a cheesecake pastry layered with very fresh berries and drizzled with a sugar glaze. Her capuchino was well made and robust.

Service was slightly akward as the server seemed inordinately shy and a bit inexperienced also slow. Otherwise, this after lunch repast was as close to Mount Olympus as it gets for us mere mortals.

The decor and ambiance is that of an American version of a European Coffee house. A neighborhood meeting place where all are welcome, for a light meal, alcoholic or not beverage, coffee, and pastry. The World Cup soccer match was playing on two flat panel TVs but considerately the sound was muted and the TVs located unobtrusively. It is very modern and welcoming to all.

“Great cafe with nice atmosphere an good food & desserts”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Great cafe in the heart of Greek town. Artopolis is a great spot to go and enjoy authentic Greek pastries and coffee. Their entries are great too! Every this is always fresh and the wood fire pizzas are always amazing. Great spot to go if you are in the Chicago area.

“Authentic Greek Bakery”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Every time I visit Chicago, Artopolis is a must! It really has great baked goods: baklava, bread, cookies, and parties that remind me of home! Great place to meet friends for brunch, lunch, or coffee and dessert!
