There are people who come to Melita's to bulk up on Greek feta; others stock up on sumac, a lemony powder that the Greeks use on, well, just about everything. Still others pop in for the aptly named "Hercules" burger, five or six inches of heft favored by those whose only afternoon requirement is a really long nap. But it's hard to imagine that they wouldn't be just as happy with the Greek pizza, a sphere of chewy pita bread brushed with Greek olive oil and piled with salty feta, grilled onions, tomatoes and peppers, kalamata olives, shavings of well-seasoned gyro meat and, if you ask nicely, a dusting of sumac. This isn't your corner pizza, or your grandmother's pizza, or like any other pizza you've stuffed into your pie hole, and that's the whole point.
Melita’s Greek Café & Market continues to carry on the proud Greek tradition established in the early 1900′s by the Economy family. You can find owner Maria Gibson in the café and market almost any day. She is continuously perusing cookbooks with Greek flavors to incorporate into the menu and stocks the market’s shelves with the necessary Greek staples difficult to find in typical supermarkets. Stop in for breakfast and order our famous egg Pita sandwich, a Gyros for lunch with their delicious cucumber sauce, or ask to sample their fresh Feta cheeses or tasty olive choices. Or get your favorite Greek food delivered to your door! We deliver breakfast, lunch, food, and groceries to your home or office. Fast and easy!
Tips from foursquare
Great place for breakfast and lunch. The owners there are personable and fun to talk with. Great food, Great prices, and great people all together! You have to try it!
Don't forget to pick up a bottle of Kalamata Olive Oil on your way out. It's a fresh, healthy alternative to overly processed oils found in most grocery stores.
Get the falafel sandwich, add feta and a side of fries. Delicious, cheap, vegetarian, and filling!
Breakfast Pizza is overloaded with spinach and the delivery fee was pretty outrageous - almost $5 for 2 breakfast items.
Awesome food -- the falafel was perfectly moist and so very tasty.
