Established in January 2010 by Spiros and Jackie, Opa! is family-owned and -operated. This restaurant serves Greek food, inspired by Spiros' upbringing in Athens.
This divey gem welcomes all to enjoy some tasty Greek food and refreshing wine both inside in their cozy coffee shop and outside on their patio. Their outdoor patio is shaded by large oak trees (heaters, also!) and is filled with a hodgepodge of seating. Customers can sit in the front, side or back — whatever they choose!
