Olympus Grille Near Avalon Cohasset: Classic Greek Food—Plus Pizza!

When Olympus Grille's website claims that the restaurant is family-owned and -operated, that's no exaggeration. According to Yelp reviewers, the staff is made up of the proprietors' own family, each friendlier than the next. So you can expect friendly and professional service at Olympus Grille, since every employee has a personal stake in the business.

The warm service is just part of the reason that Cohasset locals adore Olympus Grille, though. The Greek food served at this restaurant, which isn't far from Avalon Cohasset, is always fresh and authentically prepared, which brings many customers back time and time again. They highly recommend the classic gyros, which are massive enough to split into two meals. A more surprising favorite? The pizzas. You might not expect to find pizza on the menu at a Greek restaurant, but it's one of Olympus Grille's most popular items. Order a standard cheese pie, a Mega Meat pizza, or the signature Olympus, which brings together Italy and Greece with its blend of red roasted peppers, feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and garlic.

The Daily Press Juice Bar: Sip Something Sweet for Lunch Near Avalon Cohasset

The traditional peanut butter sandwich gets made over two ways at The Daily Press Juice Bar not far from Avalon Cohasset. The first? Smoothie form. The peanut butter banana smoothie adds some natural sweetness to the salty peanut butter by blending it with chunks of frozen bananas, vanilla protein powder, and organic milk. If you prefer to eat your food instead of slurping it, try the almond butter and berries toast. You get the healthy fats of almond butter, a good alternative to peanut butter, with mashed berries instead of sugary jelly.

These are just two of the options at The Daily Press, though. This establishment in Cohasset also, of course, serves juice. The Daily Press enlists a cold-pressing method to squeeze every last ounce of nutrition out of fruits and veggies—and keep the juices fresh for longer. Try the house blend, which mixes the superfood kale with sweet pineapple and cool cucumber. You can also opt for the Mad Beets, a medley of blueberries, pineapple, cucumber, and beets.
