Olympia Diner offers guests the flavour vistas of Greece as well as a taste of home with dinner and lunch menus boasting family-friendly dish selections from pitas to pizza. Guests can belly up to a table among the soothing blue-and-white interior to mollify chatty stomachs with souvlaki—charbroiled, marinated, and skewered lamb, chicken, or pork ($9.95–$16.65). Or, start the meal slow with escargot cooked in mushroom caps ($7.75), a controversial method that displaces thousands of mushroom stems every year. Dinner boasts delectables such as cordon bleu ($16.95), and lunch is escalated through the diner’s many sandwich, burger, and omelet offerings. Seven pizza varieties, such as the stroganoff ($14.95+), exhibit the chef’s crust prowess, and seafood options, such as the shrimp-and-scallop kebab ($18.95), assure no one feels the need to dive mouth-first into the neighbour’s fancy fish tank after dinner.
Inside a dining room painted with the bright blue and white of Greece’s flag, Olympia Diner's servers whisk plates of tender marinated lamb, feta-stuffed chicken breast, and prime rib to awaiting diners. During lunch, guests wrap their mitts around American-style bacon cheeseburgers or divvy up Greek-influenced pizzas topped with black olives, tomato, and feta. For dinner, they can warm up their palates with a giant, crisp Greek salad, before freeing morsels of grilled seafood and vegetables from kebob skewers, only to dash their hopes by immediately eating them.
