When university students are hung-over we revert back to infanthood. We whine, we moan, we yearn to be taken care of. Is there any better treatment for a hangover than a greasy breakfast made for us while we drown our sorrows in five cups of coffee?
Athens Restaurant (6273 Quinpool Road) plays the role of the loving Greek mother to her haggard, emaciated customers. No matter how dilapidated or disheveled you may look, Athens will never judge you. She will treat you warmly and kindly, offering breakfast specials and frequent caffeine refills. She appreciates that you probably spent all of your money at the bar the night before, which is why she only charges $5.99 for an early bird breakfast (served until 11 a.m.) which includes two eggs, with a choice of bacon, ham, or sausage, served with toast, home fries and a drink. Even if you’re in bed until 1 p.m., Athens continues to serve an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet until 2:30 p.m. on weekends.
Like many mothers, Athens understands that the way to our weary hearts is through our stomachs. Now, if only we could get them to do our laundry.
