Joanna Galanis, owner of Capitol Café Pancake House & Restaurant, is a second-generation restaurant owner. Her parents, George and Dina Dimitropolous, ran the Grecian Inn since 1979 in a couple of locations. The Grecian Inn still exists in the lower level, below the Capitol Cafe, and is open on Fridays for fish fries or banquets anytime. Both restaurants are known for their authentic, traditional Greek dishes. The Capitol Cafe also features a variety of American items prepared homemade with a modern twist.

"This is truly a family restaurant. A family runs it, and families love to come here," Galanis said. "We have everything. Our menu is so extensive."

Some of the signature breakfast items are The Greek Skillet, Eggs Arlington Benedict and Homemade Corn Beef Hash. For lunch, the Roast Lamb Sandwich and the Greek Salad are especially popular. For dinner, Galanis highly recommends the Spinach Pie, the All-You-Can Eat Fish Fry (buckets of fish also available) and the Saganaki or flaming cheese.

...everything on the menu can be made to go. So whether you're in a hurry or able to stop in for a sit-down meal, The Capitol Cafe/Grecian Inn can take care of you.
