home is where good food is..

there is no one and i mean no one that does not appreciate some good old mama’s cooking. we all need some food nourishing both our body and soul from time to time. so it’s always really nice to find a kind of joint committed to home style cooking. “homey” is a restaurant made out of love for Greek cuisine and tradition. the hosts, also responsible for the famous  “papadakis” restaurant, are always trying to make you feel right at home; hence its name.
