Monthly Dinner Special

Mediterranean Rib Steak


For the entire month of August we have taken this popular dish from our dinner menu and are offering it at a special discounted price!

Your meal will begin with a Greek salad with all the trimmings (feta cheese, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, red onions, romaine lettuce and Greek dressing) and our house garlic bread. The main entree is a 10 oz Rib Steak charbroiled to your specifications and topped with our homemade Greek sauce (lemon, olive oil and garlic) and then sprinkled with feta cheese, to make this a truly original steak dinner! Served with your choice of rice pilaf or potatoes.

Enjoy with a glass of our suggested wine: Agiorgitiko Red Wine  ($6.95/glass)

August 15th - Panagia's

This religious holiday pays honor to the Virgin Mary and the entire country of Greece breaks out in celebration. The largest gatherings take place at churches that are dedicated to the Virgin Mary. But, regardless of where one may be, a festival will not be hard to find. Just follow your nose to the smells of a BBQ taking place with the traditional roasting of a lamb, goat or pig and listen for the sounds of Greek music being played as people dance and party into all hours of the hot summer night!

Although August is a very hot month to be in Greece, if you do vacation there this time of year, make sure your plans keep you in Greece on August 15th to partake in one of the biggest and best cultural events in Greek life.

We Serve Breakfast!

Sundays we open at 8am and serve breakfast till 3pm!

Tuesday - Saturday we offer a "late" breakfast from 11am - 3pm, during our lunch service.

Need to Cool Off?

As summer inches its way closer and closer to Bellingham, come inside to beat the heat and eat in our air conditioned dining room. Enjoy your meal as the sun beams through our large skylight and illuminates our beautiful ficus tree, right in the middle of our entrance foyer.

Or, try a refreshing beverage from our bar to really "chill" out! Our lemonada, made with fresh lemon juice and alcohol is a summer favorite!
