The Olympic Cafe has made a believer out of me. I started off quite skeptical about their appeal to open for extended hours. They've run a good enough business to alleviate many of my concerns, and every time I've been in there I've been treated well. Olympic is also one of the growing number of eateries that is ignoring the stigma of the northside and will deliver. Many fine evenings spent porch-sitting with friends have been saved when we could call Olympic and get several orders of gyros with extra sauce brought right to our doorstep.
In fact, Olympic has expanded their delivery service. It used to be that you'd have to spend $20 or more to get delivery, but now smaller orders can be brought to you for a $2.00 charge. Olympic Cafe is opening a new location on the northside, and the photo above was taken from my dining room window, in hopes that they'll come to Penn and Broadway.
