“Excellent Breakfast - Great Service - Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

While our daughter was studying at UChicago we ate at Salonica many times. It's a wonderful place for breakfast; there were so many choices. It was easy to see that both locals and visitors frequented this restaurant - always a good sign. Service was friendly. The place was always packed. We always left feeling full and satisfied.

“Not worth a stop...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We wanted to this Greek Diner to be awesome, but it was only ok. The food was not so good and the service was slow. Try something else when you are in Hyde Park.

“Friendly and satisfying on a cold day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

WE wandered in after brousing Powells Books. The service was quick and so friendly. They accommodated a family with kids who came in just after us. The food is tasty, filling and there's a good selection of Greek specialties - and best of all - All Day Breakfast that would be acceptable in the home of Breakfast, the U.K. Our tuna sandwich was delicious, and the coffee cup was refilled several times.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very busy local place and the cheerful service and delicious breakfast were a treat. Close to the University of Chicago. Paid street parking is available and the cops are vigilant about tickets.

Proprietor run great little Greek taverna in Hyde Park. Excellent moussaka and other Greek delicacies. Service friendly and attentive. Pity about the machine coke and BYO. will definitely become a regular when visiting Chicago
