“Nice view of Albany's skyline from parking lot, food's even better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We've dined here now on several occasions for both breakfast and lunch and have been completely satisfied every time. Interior is clean and welcoming. Menu isn't overly extensive but what it features is good, tasty comfort food and more! Prices are decent, portions aren't stingy and service is quite good. I wouldn't hesitate to bring out of town family members here, it's that good! .

“Good food and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Attractive exterior, clean interior. Good sized diner portions for breakfast, and omelettes and pancakes were tasty. Best of all, very friendly, fast service. Located near Amtrak station.

“Where everybody knows your name...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Dropped in on a whim and glad we did. Classic diner food that tilts Greek is served by a friendly staff at great prices. Everyone here seems to be a regular (a great sign) so the staff knew and greeted everyone by their first name. Great portions at great prices and everything was excellent but try the grilled Reuben or the hummus / Kalamata olive wrap. It's a short detour off I-87 and worth it.

“If you're a "diner person"....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is it! An authentic Greek diner with the feel and taste of a family business that caters to its customers. Real fresh comforting food, reasonably priced. Great for breakfast and lunch - catching on by word-of-mouth. Easy to get to from Albany, Troy or East Greenbush. Easy parking.Brightly renovated and decorated, clean and well-maintained too,
