  • Sunday Brunch a Real Lakewood Gem
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/17/2012
    If you're looking for a local Sunday brunch that is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced, I highly recommend George's Greek Cafe in Lakewood, Ca on Candlewood. This little gem offers Sunday brunch each week and combines standard breakfast fare like scrambled eggs and bacon with Greek standards like salad, Pasticio (the best!) and gyros. A popular eatery for special occasions, the staff are plentiful and seating is comfortable and convenient to the inviting food display. George's is listed on Open Table for easy reservations.

    We started off with the Saganaki (flaming cheese) as recommended by fellow Yelpers... entertaining AND yummy! The salty tartness of the kalamata olives and the fresh squeezed lemon juice (along with the brandy set aflame) marries well with the cheese and pita slices. We also ordered the Spanokopita which is really good, too--it has twice the filling than others I've had elsewhere. Having tasted all the dishes on our table (beef gyro plate, pastitso, stuffed salmon, lamb chops), the LAMB CHOPS were by far the best--tender and tasty. The stuffed salmon was good, but may have been a tad bit overdone, but it was still good enough...and really rich with the spinach and feta stuffing. I expected the Pastitso to be a little spicier (since t

The waitress was a bit forgetful, but it was busy so we forgave it. I would have liked to see a few more Greek items on the food bar. Overall, it was nice.

The grilled shrimp, eggplant, rice and lamp chops were outstanding as well as their varitey appretizers. The Valentine's Day dessert was excellent. Food and service are equal if not better than at Belmont Shores -- both excellant restaurants.

    George's did a great job for Valentine's Day. White tablecloths, candle light, a rose for every woman. It was beautiful and the service and food were great. My only disappointment was that we couldn't order off the regular menu. Luckily my favorite entree was on the special menu, but I would have also enjoyed having avgolemono soup. It was so nice to enter the restaurant and have a table waiting for us. Going out for Valentine's Day can be caotic, but George's did a great job making a special occasion easy to manage. It was a wonderful experience.
