The Continental Corner Greek Restaurant was established in 1973, by Tom Mavrikes and Ernest Yatrelis, and offered Mediterranean gifts and imported food items.
In 1974, The Corner began offering deli sandwiches and Greek salads at lunch. Shortly thereafter, gyro and souvlaki (kebab) sandwiches were added. There were only 17 seats and patrons ordered at the counter, and got their Continental Corner spiced tea and other refrigerated, canned beverages.
In 1975, The Corner acquired the larger adjoining building and began offering a specialty dinner entrée on Friday nights by reservation only. It wasn’t very long before patrons asked The Corner to offer a dinner menu with many entrees to choose.
The Corner expanded its lunch and dinner menus and was then open Monday through Saturdays, but “Never on Sunday” as the Greek song goes! A children's menu was also added.
On the Sunday after Labor Day in 1992, The Corner opened for its first brunch season, offering selected brunch items and most of its lunch menu. The brunch season was from the Sunday after Labor Day through the last Sunday in May. Today, TheContinental Corner Greek Restaurant is open every Sunday for brunch.
