The Gyros Are The Best in The West!

They say that in life, there is a time to 'start something' and a time to  'stop' - it struck me on Friday night 2/21 that i should move on and  discover the 'next thing' - which SHOULD be Retirement! Gyros and music at the Colfax Greek Bistro have been great and i am leaving at a 'peak' of business - but it's 'my calling' at this moment to make a change.
After 4 1/2 years in business, i gave my customers 3 days notice. So please come by for your last Gyro or a hug on Friday 2/28 between noon - nine:) We will have Greek Dancing for the last time on that night!

The Colfax Greek Bistro is a casual restaurant serving Greek and Mediterranean food.  Located one minute from I-80 in the historic downtown of Colfax, CA.  Patrons can sit back, relax, and enjoy great tasting ethnic food.  We offer a family-friendly cozy atmosphere, and have a small play area for the kids. You can find us midway between Reno and Sacramento, Exit #135, off Interstate 80.

The menu is Greek, Mediterranean, Vegetarian & Ethnic, and features Authentic Gyros, which are roasted right on the premises. The Greek salad is prepared fresh with Kalamata olives & Feta cheese. In addition, Dolmas & Falafels make the selection a 'haven' for vegetarians and the Tzatziki dips with pita chips complete the savory menu.

Turkish coffee and Baklava make a delicious combination for the end of your delectable meal.

You can also enjoy Greek and Local Wines and Ciders, or make a selection from our Beers from Around the World.

About Elan Vitkoff, owner of the Colfax Greek Bistro:

Elan’s passion is to bring excellent Gryos and ethnic food to Colfax for locals, neighboring residents and Interstate 80 travelers.

The environment of the café is extremely enjoyable and a good place to relax whether you are a traveler in need of a respite or you are a local coming to enjoy dinner and LIVE music on Saturday night.

We tend to have the best music of Rock, Folk and Jazz as our Music & Events tab indicates.

We keep part time hours because my daughter Sophia and I feel that there is more to life than Main St., Colfax.

The Colfax Greek Bistro is open 3 days per week:

Friday & Saturday 12 pm to 9 pm

Sunday 2 pm to 8 pm

We keep our commitment to offer high quality fresh food served in a homey atmosphere in a charming and historic setting in Colfax, CA.

Our objective is to provide an incredible experience by introducing you to a mixture of Mediterranean and Greek food.

The falafels are made in the Mediterranean way since Elan was a native Mediterranean. The authentic Gyros are made from meat roasted on the premises and are truly the Best In The West.

Our international beers make a good pairing with your meal selection.

Sophia and I eat Gyros every chance that we get when we travel in the Sacramento valley, the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world.

Our comment is often:  Ours are better and we are in Colfax!

Come today and find out for yourself!

We promise to make your visit outstanding in ambiance and personnel that go out of their way to make your visit delightful and memorable.


"Oh my gosh....I love history....I love local businesses....I love ethnic food... this fits the bill. :) The owner, Elan, is so sweet and accommodating. She provides a diverse selection of both local and ethnic beers and wine, which you can casually sip while she prepares your meal. I love the authentic gyro as well as the spanikopita. Her tzatziki sauce is delightfully fresh and garlicky (so ya both gotta eat it). If you're in a hurry, call in and pre-order, but if you want to relax, this is the place.... she has couches to lounge on...a bar to hang out, and tables to eat at. But seriously, the gyro, in COLFAX, is a rarity, and to die for!!! I just wish she were open more days. This is also the place to have a special occasion....enough room for everyone. Her daughter, Sophia, is a delight, and in between her homework, she is wonderful addition to the bistro, helping her mom out. Also clean bathrooms and an art gallery, with Colfax history strewn throughout. Love it, love it, love it. :)"
