She had a salad and declared it yummy, plus she loved her raspberry iced tea. I had the gyro sandwich and loved it! Service was prompt and pleasant. The owner came out of the kitchen and greeted guests...again wonderful!

An extensive menu, specialising in breakfast fare. We went there twice, as we were so impressed the first time. The omelettes are huge and must be made with four or five eggs. This cafe is very good and offers excellent value for money breakfasts.

call up, the owners are Greeks. If you have some greek blood in your group and /or can say / speak a few words in greek, you will be in for a treat. Its big enough for large groups.
