What's Cooking?

I haven't been to Cafe Athena in years - probably because of the concealed mini-mall location. I have good memories of meals there, though. Maybe a re-visit is in order.


Hi Mike - The food is not bad...though I'm not fond of some of the meat dishes there.


everything you tried looked so yummy!


Man, in that close-up of the veggie dish (3rd from last [tri-ultimate?]), the rice looks perfect.

Having cooked at home for a few years, I can tell you that perfectly cooked rice or eggs are a thing of beuaty--and not necessarily the easiest things to come by.

Al Dente pasta? Seared tuna? Perfectly cooked steak or shrimp? Not a problem. Eggs and rice? Another story.


Hi Kat - It was pretty good, and much more interesting than the average gyro....

Hi Jan - I don't recall much about the rice, though due to my heritage I believe good rice is a birthright, and would probably only tell you if it was very good, or not up to par.


That looks like real Greek Food! Not just the Greek/Turkish Middle Eastern combo that serves as Greek Fastfood ala Daphne's. When next in the PB area, I might look this up for the Veggie offerings.

The Skordalia in particular looks very good.

Other than the Fakee at Athens Market and the Athenian Chicken at the Greek Islands Cafe in Seaport Village (if its still there) I can only recommend Apollonia's in UTC for the unusual, but I feel the price and quality at Athens Cafe are better.


Hi MrM - You know, I think Cafe Athena and Apollonia have the same owners...... the menu is very similar, and I recall reading that somewhere.
