So tasty! My brother lived in Greece and said that the tyropita was really yummy. It was so flavorful and cheesy. They also have several other traditional greek pastries.

Super nice people and great coffee and Greek pastries and small dishes.

We really enjoyed the food here. We picked it at random from local Yelp reviews as we had to be in Berkley at lunchtime. The place is fairly non-descript in appearance: clean and welcoming but nothing memorable. However, all the food we tried was great - very reminiscent of Mediterranean food we'd had on vacation. The menu isn't huge but everyone found something they wanted, and then really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and the place had the low-key vibe of a favorite with the locals and students alike. We'll be back when we're in Berkley again.

In the short time it's been open, I've become such a regular that I didn't even think to write a review. First, I basically just come for the coffee. It's Illy and delicious. Occasionally, I get a cappuccino, and it is perfectly made. I have had the delicious pastries, but I'm trying to stay away from them. Service is warm and inviting. I haven't tried the lunch food yet, but based on reviews and the quality of everything else, I think I will do so!

Great quiet space to study or catch up with friends over coffee and snacks. Tucked behind the Trader Joe's on University Ave, most people walk by without ever realizing the sweet cafe tucked by the parking garage! They have illy coffee and an assortment of homemade Greek snacks (sweet and savory). I typically order a latte and something sweet to nibble on. They prepare espresso beverages with care and you rarely have to wait to order. **Full disclosure, I come here to support the owners - two friendly and overall amazing humans! Come visit and you'll understand why I keep coming back ;)

This is only my second time coming here but both times the food has been delicious! First time I had the Homemade Eliopita & a Mocha. Second time I had a similar looking Homemade dish but I can't remember the name lol. The owners are very nice, the place is very cozy for studying, and the place isn't super crowded like other cafes. Their mocha was also very good, although I admit I'm not very picky with my coffee so long as it's sweet. Overall prices aren't that bad either, especially for the homemade high quality. Will definitely comeback to study & eat their homemade food again!

It was my 1st time here, and I was going to take my mom there for her early birthday lunch, so I came by about an hour before noon to check the place out. The owner was at the counter, and said that they could reserve one of their large tables for us - there'd be 5 people, so one of their long wooden communal style tables would be perfect for that. I told them one of us would be in a wheel chair, so they arranged the chairs to fit it in. My dad and I arrived first, so we started with some pastries and coffee, and waited for others. We've ordered one of each of their sandwiches, and everybody's favorite was the Caprese (tomato/mozarella). The phyllo dough pastries were all good and didn't feel too buttery or heavy at all. The salads that came with sandwiches were fresh and yummy, with great dressing. The only thing with the Greek salad was that the dressing felt a tad spicy, but I was told it was because of the extra virgin oil. My mom and my husband and his sister who are all very picky about their food loved everything and said they'd come back. Me too! I liked the food, the music, the place was super clean, the bathroom was clean and stocked, and the place is run by a nice family from Greece. What's not to like?

Excellent food and coffee. I got a Greek cheese tart that was absolutely delicious, the pastry was incredibly flaky. I also got a blueberry cheese pastry, which was equally delicious. Definitely a place I will be stopping at more often. Very welcoming and comfortable place to hang out, too.

A wonderfully cute cafe tucked away on the corner of the street by Trader Joe's. I had their beignets and coffee to go. They made the coffee right there to brew so it was very fresh. I highly recommend trying their beignets or any of the other pastries. It's an incredibly calm and inviting space.

This review is long overdue. I love this place. The Greek treats are amazing, I love all of it. The staff are so sweet, I especially love the man of grandfatherly age who is too cute. And the coffee is good!

This place is amazing! We were hungry after a hike and wanted a snack. The food is delicious! The Greek pastries were fresh, heated in the over , not the microwave. I had a veggie sandwich where the bread was soft, warm soft and fresh, and the pesto sauce on the sandwich was made in-house. They made the food with care, on the spot, and they were so friendly. I will definitely be coming back here.

Great place to work at, or meet up with a friend! They have good coffee and yummy pastries too.
