Daphne's in San Diego County has a reputation for fast, tasty Greek food. This location is no exception. It has the usual Greek cuisine from Gyros to Chicken, Greek Salads, and, of course, Baklava. This location has indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff take your order. You then find a table and servers bring your food to the table. Sodas... More

The best I can say is this is a good place when I get tired of my regular places. I like to falafel sandwiches. It feels a bit pricey - maybe a dollar too high on entrees, and the portions, especially of sides, are small. The taste is OK, but seems very institutional - like everything came pre-prepared off a... More

The restaurant is located in a big shopping mall. Parking is easy because it is right across the door. I had a lemon chicken soup and a Greek salad with fresh-carved gyros. The food was tasty, the soup at the right temperature and the portions just right. Unfortunately all the food was served at the same time so the main... More

I visited Daphne's a long time ago and had their catered meals at work over the years. It's greasy Greek cuisine. Well, the flavors aren't really exciting certainly for a vegetarian.

We stopped and had a quick lunch here. I had the street pita duo and my husband had the shawarma chicken pita. It was fast and had generous portion sizes. Be aware that this restaurant is Ina very busy shopping center (kinda hipster with the Whole Foods and Trader Joes) and it might be a little hectic.

The food was pretty good, but the service was better! The young man who was there was helpful in explaining their menu and helping to figure out vegetarian options. I'd eat here again :)

The staff here are fantastic and treat their customers very well. The food is regular Daphnes so if you like Daphnes, worth going here.
