So I've been visiting Athens frequently for over a year and have recently made the leap to move here at least semi-permanently. I've eaten here more than a handful of times & I have never been disappointed - even with a group of 6 on...More

Friendly waitress fielded my questions and helped me order the Golden Bowl, extra pita & Mediterranean Sampler plus a petite salad. The vibe of the place was hip when I picked up my meal. Food was fresh and delicious! I would definitely eat here again....More

I really like the atmosphere and the employees but the food tastes average to me. Next door, on the other hand, Tazikis WOWS. I will say if you have a friend/family member who needs to eat Gluten-Free, this place offers some lovely options.

Being a vegetarian or vegan, this is a place not to miss and if you like meat, I guarantee you won't miss it! You can order off their menu or their daily veggie board. If you still have room, their desserts are to die for!

Can't complain about the breakfast I got here recently- texas toast/gouda/eggs plus some veggies with (bonus?) nutritional yeast. Everything was tasty. Service was good. Nice art on the walls was an added bonus.

Picked a perfect day to visit here with everyone focused on Back to the Future. This is a step Back in Time to an old fashioned soda fountain diner. It's originality and food that would make any vegetarian, vegan or anyone wanting a good healthy...More

Even for non-vegetarians, The Grit is wonderful. Hearty, fresh and delicious food. I go to The Grit every time I am in Athens (pretty often). Cool old building, interesting art, funky but attentive staff. My go to dish is always The Golden Bowl (sauteed tofu...More

I came here because it was reviewed highly on the Internet. It didn't disappoint. I was only sad that I couldn't try everything on the menu! I went with the classic and a side of falafel. The classic was nice. The falafel was ok, but...More
