We did some serious investigate reporting (read: eating) at the “new” Greek Lady this morning and were pleasantly surprised to find the prices haven’t budged and the menu changed only slightly. We were greeted by a spankin’ new laminated breakfast menu and an Ancient Grecian aesthetic. Could this really be the same Greek Lady (@ Penn) we’d all grown to love? Judging from the same omelets, french fries and salads our favorite lady has indeed, stayed true to her roots.
However, some welcome additions adorn the breakfast menu, including French toast and pancakes. Both tasted deep fried (yum) and were coated with mountains of powdered sugar (even more yum). We’ve officially reserved the back booth for noon every Sunday from now until eternity. Tell your hangover to take a number.
But the real changes are of course in the decor. Back in the day, Greek Lady was pretty… in a dowdy kind of way. Now she’s just a full-blown knockout! Check out those new Corinthian columns. Dayum! Her exposed wood ceiling offsets the newly painted self-portrait mural near checkout and the shabby seating area has been upgraded with cushioned chairs and booths lining the walls.
Despite the new tables and serving station (is that real granite?!) the Lady is still just a good ole’ Greek diner at heart.
