I have been coming to Olympic Café since I was 10 years old. I always feel at home here and even if I don't come often, the waitresses always remember me and even my order. I was so concerned when they "closed" for a little while that they weren't coming back - but they moved slightly down the street into a much larger spot and now even have a lovely covered patio that is so nice even when it's warm out. I am a sucker for their lemon chicken soup - it is the best I've ever had and I literally will crave it if it's been too long between trips. :) The regular Greek salad is also amazing - I love feta and you get a giant piece of it on the salad to break up yourself which is very traditional. Their hummus is also amazing and the pita bread is always warm and still soft when it arrives. The service is always impeccable and they keep an eye on drinks so they are never empty. The prices are unbeatable for the amount of food and the quality of the food you get. This is by far one of my favorite places in the city. Go!! :)

Excellent service, absolutely delicious authentic food, charming location and ambiance and very fair prices. This is a family restaurant, if you are expecting a high end restaurant with all the manners and luxuries, turn around. This is a humble place of sophisticated flavors from the Mediterranean: spices, olives, pita bread, hummus ...it s nothing extra fancy, there s no pirouette and delicate fancy presentation but from someone who actually is from the Mediterranean, it feels like loved one made me a birthday meal at home!
