John’s Cafe dates back to the early 1970’s when it was further north on Greenville. Various lease and sign issues forced them to move slightly northeast for a couple years but then they found a new location on lower Greenville.  It is the same breakfast and lunch place with slightly more seating.  There is a lunch special everyday but John Spyropoulos seems to be mostly popular for his breakfast special, $6.99 for your choice of 2 eggs, choice of bacon, ham or sausage and hash browns and toast or biscuits.  He makes a number of tasty omelets, the Gyro being a favorite.

You order at the counter, pick up your drink and then take your seat. The staff calls your number or just knows who gets what and they bring it out to you.  Don’t forget to go by the service area and pick up your silverware and any extra sauces or syrup.  One note to those with kids, he makes special pancakes with smiley faces on them for children. Nothing fancy here, but good, fresh, solid and consistent cooking.  You’ll get hooked on going.
