I really enjoy Daphne's Greek Cafe because I feel like I'm getting good value and the food tastes great and is healthy. My kids have enjoyed Daphne's savory fresh-carved gyros meat since their baby teeth grew in. We all like the rice and tasty pita. My wife loves the falafel, hummus and spanakopita. The Greek salad is always fresh. We always feel full but not "stuffed" when eating at Daphne's. They don't overdo it. But if you have room, they offer baklava for only a $1!
We visit the Newbury Park location, where Niko, the amazingly outstanding manager has worked for many years. This guy is "on it" - completely in control of that restaurant, ensuring customers are happy. He is excellent at multi-tasking. He's taking orders while keeping an eye out on the tables, making sure everyone has what they need. They serve you the food at your table. I tried to clean off my table when we finished but he wouldn't let me!
This is "healthy" fast food. What I like is that I've NEVER had a bad meal here. Very consistent quality. And the place is always immaculate...at least the Newbury Park location that I frequent.
