John’s Cafe, a popular diner located on Greenville Avenue, is celebrating 50 years in business.

The restaurant is tucked into a retail strip on Lowest Greenville, near the intersection with Ross Avenue. It specializes in breakfast and lunch dishes.

Its owner, John Spyropoulos, talked with channel 5 about his business in this video. He’s originally from Greece and came to the United States in 1970. The restaurant opened two years later, in 1972.

Diner regulars tell channel 5 the service and food is always good.

Several years ago, the restaurant moved to a different location when it lost its lease, but it returned to East Dallas in 2007.

John’s Cafe is located at 1733 Greenville Ave.
