Our Financial District Cafe & Bakery Offerings
We’re much more than a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant. While we offer a delectable menu with breakfast and lunch options, we also have a cafe and bakery. And when the day is over, we’re still open as a wine bar!
We serve many Mediterranean delights at our FiDi location.
After all, many health experts say the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest diets to follow because it incorporates foods that promote good health, a healthy body weight, and disease prevention throughout life. Some common foods in the Mediterranean diet include unprocessed plant foods like:
- Whole grains
And, of course, the Mediterranean diet has a healthy dose of olive oil, which boosts all kinds of health benefits on its own.
Greek Restaurant & Cafe (Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch)
By day, we’re a brunch restaurant and cafe. That’s right; we’re a breakfast and lunch restaurant!
Sit in the dining room or grab a table on the patio to enjoy a quick appetizer, entree, or mouthwatering pastry.
You can even take your order on the go. There’s nothing like strolling down Park Ave. with a coffee in one hand and a pastry in the other. We have many croissants and sweets that are perfect for when you’re in a hurry.
And if you absolutely love our Greek and Mediterranean food, explore our catering menu. We offer breakfast and event catering menus for all your needs. Whether it’s a work event, birthday bash, or any other special event, let us be there with you, celebrating with superb Greek food!
You can also host an event at our FiDi location, which comfortably holds 10-25 people.

Frequently Asked Questions About Greek Restaurants in NYC
If you’ve never tried Greek food, you may have many questions about what to eat at a Greek restaurant. Let us give you a sneak peek at all the dishes of Greek cuisine!
What Food Is Served at a Greek Restaurant?
When it comes to Greek food, the first thing to note is that you’ll almost always find pita served as part of the meze – or appetizer – with an array of dips.
The national dish of Greece, Moussaka, is on nearly every Greek restaurant menu. It combines layers of:
- Fried eggplant
- Seasoned ground meat
- Spiced tomato sauce
On top, it has a creamy béchamel sauce that is to die for!
Gyro meat (often lamb, but sometimes beef, chicken, or pork), pressed cone-shaped meat cooked on a rotating vertical spit, is another typical dish. You can’t go wrong when you stuff it in a pita with tzatziki.
Since many associate lamb with Greek dining, you can find that most Greek restaurants have a fantastic lamb chop dish on their menu, too.
Being on the sea, Greek cuisine has plenty of fresh fish dishes, such as fried calamari (Kalamarakia Tiganita) or grilled octopus (Chtapodi sti Schara).
Like many other countries, Greece has its own meatball dish called Soutzoukakia. Baked in a rich tomato sauce, you can enjoy them as an appetizer or with a Greek salad.
If you’re vegetarian, you must give Saganaki a try. It’s simply fried cheese! For seafood lovers, try Garides Saganaki, sautéed prawns with lemon potatoes.
Briam (roasted vegetables) is another excellent vegetarian dish. It’s similar to ratatouille with slices of:
You can also try Spanikopita (or Spanakopita), Greek spinach pie. The filling is sautéd spinach, garlic, onions, herbs, and feta.
What Is a Typical Greek Dessert?
Greek cuisine is also full of amazingly delicious desserts that always leave you wanting more.
Baklava is one of the best-known desserts in Greece and around the Mediterranean in countries such as:
It’s a phyllo pastry with chopped walnuts or pistachios and sugary syrup. Each county has its own slight variation of this treat.
Loukoumades, Greek dounuts, are another favorite. These fried dough balls, rolled in cinnamon, honey, sesame seed, and sugar syrup, are simple and delicious.
Halva is a dessert you must try, too. The most common variety in Greece uses tahini and sugar or honey. You can also find many halva varieties throughout the Middle East and India.
What Is a Traditional Greek Breakfast?
The simplest Greek breakfasts include bread, pastries, baked goods, marmalade, and an assortment of cheeses. Paired with a strong coffee or milk, Greeks love this easy-to-go meal. You’ll find various simple options like this in any Greek breakfast restaurant.
But if you’re looking for a specific dish, try koulouri (sesame bread). It’s the standard “on the road” breakfast Greeks eat with their coffee.
Another option to try is moustokouloura. This pastry, made with cinnamon and clove powder, is sweet and goes excellent with coffee.
If you’re going light on carbs, Greece is also famous for its thick yogurt, almost like pudding, in a clay pot. You can add honey so the yogurt isn’t so tangy. Add walnuts or pistachios for a nutritious meal if you like more texture. This quick delight also makes for an excellent afternoon snack.
