Daphne Greek Cafe - short report

Claudette | Jan 14, 2007 04:49 PM

We had dinner last night at Daphne's Greek Cafe in Sunnyvale (in the new bldg with the new Peet's). You'd think it'd suffer in comparison to our wonderful meal at Dio Deka the night before, but we were pleasantly surprised.

The gyros appetizer was pretty big for $5: strips of gyros that were much moister than they looked, blobs of so-so hummus (needed more garlic and salt), tasty tzakziki, and a delicious, red, spicy feta mixture. The accompanying pita bread was fresh.

The $9 veggie platter held greasy but good deep-fried spanakopita, some hohum dolmas, a decent salad, hummus, pita, and the best falafel I'd ever had (soft, moist, flavorful disks instead of the usual round dry golf balls).

The place was mobbed all day, according to the manager, and I believe him from the looks of the place every time I was at Peet's.
