Odyssia Caffe Bistro

On the northwest side of campus, Naso Eleftheriadis and Pascal Kouromenos opened Odyssia two years ago (they also run Cafe Nefeli on Euclid Avenue). They've made Odyssia their version of a Mediterranean cafe -- sunny yellow walls feature murals of half-nude women reproduced from frescoes on the island of Santorini, and the men sitting at the sidewalk tables invariably know the people behind the counter. - www.sfgate.com
