I love Greek food. And honestly, what’s not to love about Greek food? The food is so fresh, full of flavor, and super light. Also, feta cheese and pita bread make everything better. Come summertime, Greek is easily my go-to cuisine.

Starting the day with Greek food is my kind of Sunday. Zoé Restaurant is one of my personal faves. Why? The menu is HUGE, the portions are generous, and the prices are low. Again, what’s not to love?

Brunching with the fam can add up quick. Lucky for us, Zoé’s keeps prices affordable without shrinking portions. Every item on the breakfast menu is under $15.

We ordered:

  • Chicken Souvlaki Breakfast- Two eggs, charbroiled chicken, homefries, toast
  • Beefteki- Two eggs, seasoned ground certified Angus beef patties, homefries, toast
  • Delight Omelette- Three farm fresh eggs, zucchini, squash, spinach, avocado, smoked provolone, homefries, toast
  • Loukoumades- Golden brown Greek Doughnuts, sweet honey syrup, cinnamon

Here’s what you need to know:

This menu is the definition of variety.

Starting a Sunday with the classic souvlaki breakfast is always a good call. There’s no such thing as too much tzatziki, and Zoé gets this. A side is more like a bowl – no complaints here.

If beef is your meat of choice, get yourself the beefteki. You can taste each spice and herb with every bite, and again this pairs oh so perfectly when dipped in tzatziki.

The omelet selection is seriously overwhelming. Choosing one is tough, but you really can’t go wrong with any of these flavor combos. The Delight is named rightly so because this omelet is packed with fresh veggies. Pro Tip: If you love avocado as much as I do you can totally go cheese-less here. But, you do you.

Ending brunch with a sweet treat is my favorite. The loukoumades are new to the menu, and these fluffy deep-fried bites are sugary perfection. You get a bunch and a few bites are just enough, so I recommend splitting them with the table. And yes, ordering fried dough for breakfast is totally, 1000% acceptable.

Mimosas and bellinis are only $6.50 a piece, and the pour is favorable – would we steer you wrong? Either choice is a good one, but my personal beverage recommendation is the Mount Olympus Mule. This cocktail is on point, especially in the summer. This has always been my go-to cocktail, so I try one pretty much wherever I am. There are bad mules, average mules, great mules, and exceptional mules. The Mount Olympus Mule falls into the exceptional category. I know, right?

This mule is made with Mediterranean fig vodka, fresh lime juice, and ginger beer. If you like vodka, you need Figenza in your life right now. This subtly fruity spirit complements spicy ginger beer in all the right ways. BTWs it’s made with hand-picked figs from Greece and Turkey.

If you normally brunch in the Elmwood Village, Allentown, or Downtown, mix it up and head to East Amherst. The food + the drinks + the prices make this place 100% worth the drive no matter where you’re coming from.
