The casual café now has two locations, with a new spot on Wilton Drive joining its existing Marina Mile location. The largely Greek-inspired menu features unique favorites such as konafa (fillings such as spinach, eggplant, beef or lamb in a thin, shredded golden-brown pastry) and pita bread mini-pizzas.

And now its blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors has arrived in Fort Lauderdale.

The mission-style building with a Spanish tile roof and quaint porch packs in diners for that impressive view of the surf across the street.
