Who We Are

About Us

Located on the corner of Milledge and Cobb within Athens' historic Cobbham District, Donderos' has been crafting culinary delights for the community for over a dozen years. Family-owned and oriented, we pride ourselves in providing our customers with a friendly and personalized experience. 

We feature a full-service café with locally roasted coffees, fine teas, and an extensive selection of baked goods. Our signature sandwiches, house-made soups and salads, cold sesame noodles and deli dishes, as always, include vegetarian options and gluten-free offerings. Breakfast and brunch are served daily, as there is no meal more important than breakfast! Main-course food items as well as house soups are available frozen for heating and enjoying at home, or by advance order prepared for your pick-up. Catering of events from small parties to wedding receptions remains central to our business.

Tim Dondero, our Executive Chef, was an international medical researcher for many years. He is still a chef, cooking teacher, and food writer. He can work with interested catering customers in designing special menus for international focus or special dietary requirements. Our staff also includes fine cooks and bakers.
