New Greek Restaurant in Wilmington- Terra Cafe

I saw that they opened up a while ago and was surprised when I realized that this was a nice little cafe. It's in an odd location- 8th & King next to a corner store and a bus stop- across from the DoubleTree hotel. Nice decor, friendly owners. Looks like most items are made in house. The menu is great, but the prices seem a little high for the area. On the other hand, it's close and I tend to crave Greek food on a regular basis. After two tries, I figure I'd spread the word.

First visit I ordered the veggie sampler (7.50) for take out. It came with 3 dolmades, sliced cucumbers, warm pita, hummus, and tzatziki. Everything was delicious and it made for a nice lunch.

Today I tried the hummus pita wrap (8.95) for lunch. All of their sandwiches come with a side and I was told that they will allow you to order the sandwich a la carte at a reduced cost. I could choose from the pasta salad, fries, or steamed green beans. I chose the green beans, which was a fantastic decision. They came warm, with pieces of celery, tomato, and had a wonderful flavor. The pita was just what I was looking for- grilled pita with a healthy amount of hummus, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onions and a sprinkling of feta. 8.95 was a little more than I would like to pay for it, but at least the vegetables were fresh and my meal was tasty. They have a nice seating area, too.

Overall, this won't be my go-to place but I will definitely go back. Thought I'd put it out there for the DE lunch crowd that's looking for something new to try.
