Casual Greektown spot with a hip young scene and menu of traditional dishes. – The Scene
Don't be fooled by its unassuming exterior; inside, this Grecian bakery packs a punch.It's almost three spots in one, with a casual eating area in the back by the bakery and kitchen, a bar in the middle, and a two-level dining area in the front with a street-view. But everything (drinks, bakery items and the full restaurant menu) is available in all areas. Be sure to stroll by the bakery and peruse the sweets before ordering dessert.
Style-savvy 20-somethings visit to enjoy a traditional Greek frappe (imported Nescafe, blended with milk and sugar, then whipped and served over ice), snack on the array of sweets as well as sandwiches, salads, thin-crust pizzas and Greek staples. The Mediterranean Fest is a blend of dips that includes fava puree and salsa-like tabbouleh. Another specialty is the Artopita--a calzone-turnover hybrid made with feta cheese and spinach-stuffed phyllo dough. (Photo by Peter Behle)
Melts in your Mouth Desserts, Delicious Artopitas – I work close to Greektown so whenever we have events or luncheons we usually order from Artopolis. We always get the "artopitas." They're really buttery croissant-like things stuffed with cheese, spinach, mushrooms, chicken, ham-- sooo good! The potato salad is good too; I don't usually eat potato salad but I can't resist theirs.
And their desserts?!?! They seriously melt in your mouth. I've tried their eclairs (it's good 'coz the chocolate is not too sweet) and the mango yogurt tarts and the raspberry chocolate ones-- words cannot describe you'll have to try them for yourself. I took my friends there recently and they liked the place.
Good dessert place – Enjoyed coffee and dessert here after dinner. Prompt seating, good service, yummy desserts too. The coffee could have been warmer but the khalua made up for it.
Excellent – We had lunch in here and it was one of the best we had during our vacation. Very friendly staff. We were seated right away and the menu offers plenty of choices to satisfy your appetite. The Mediterraneo sandwich along with the potato salad was a really good choice. I saved half of my sandwich to be able to enjoy the pastries. Really good and affordable place.
