Kafe Neo was founded by Gus and Pete Sverkos at 2400 E. 4th St. (at Temple) with the idea of bringing a little piece of their Greek heritage to this same corner as their father, Dennis’, auto repair business, which was opened in 1973 in the Bluff Heights Neighborhood. Today you will be able to savor the same Greek flavors the Effe (mama) has been cooking for their family for the past 40 years. They will be serving you the freshest food from their American Kitchen with Greek Soul. Kali Orexi (wishing you a good appetite),
