    I have been eating here for years!!!

    All of the food is homemade. The price is the best you will find in the area. I work in the area and the staff is always friendly to me. Try the Gyros, it is amazing!! The burgers are great, all of the soups are tasty, and the Reuben is truely fabulous!

    Best Cafe!!

    We had a great dinner at this place. I had an Athenian Salad that was fresh with awesome feta cheese and fabulous dressing. My friend had a delicious turkey club sandwich with tasty fries. We couldn't be happier! The food was great, the outdoor cafe was packed and had the best people watching and dinner was less than $20!!

    Great place!!

    I went to this restaurant when I was visiting Chicago with my family last week. We went to the Art Institute and had lunch at the Artists Cafe. The food was great and the outdoor cafe was beautiful. Our bill for a family of 5 was $60!! My kids loved the burgers and Chicago style hot dog and my husband had chicken vesuvio and I had an Athenian salad. We sat outside on Michigan Avenue and had a wonderful time!!

    Great people watching!

    My daughter takes lessons in the Fine Arts Building so I have gone to this place every Saturday for 3 years. The food is always good and the coffee is great. The outdoor cafe is something I look forward to every summer. I give the outdoor cafe a 10.

    This place is AWFUL. Terrible quality at outrageous prices! I went with 5 friends, we each ordered something different and we were all disappointed. Don't waste your money.

    Don't Bother

    We walked in, were stared at by three different members of the waitstaff before we were instructed to choose a table. Once we sat down, we were asked to move to a smaller table- even though the dining room was completely empty. We were less than impressed by the attitude, and were pretty irritated to see diner food at ridiculous prices. Jazz on the stereo and a few autographed theatre posters do not make the diner decor upscale. We're talking mismatched carpets, chairs, and wallpaper- which is fine, but then call yourself what you are- an overpriced diner. The food was unremarkable- not terrible at all, but certainly not worth the price. We've dined a lot better for a lot cheaper. Skip this one.

    Not at all what I expected...

    When I walked in the door someone asked me "What do you want?" Not the friendliest greeting upon entering a new restaurant. Once I was sat, I could hardly get a server to look at me and when she did appear she did not seem at all excited to be working. The food was too expensive for the bland taste-I had a pasta dish. I definitly will not be returning to this restaurant.
