This diner-like joint, located just a few blocks from the University of Chicago, is a Hyde Park staple. Coffee mugs are turned upside down on every table, just waiting to be filled, and seating includes four-seater booths, each with a canopy overhead. The mostly American menu also includes Greek dishes. Breakfast features omelets, pancakes and waffles; lunch includes sandwiches, salads and burgers. Specialties of the house include Athenian chicken, Greek-style spaghetti and baby beef liver with grilled onions.
