There's always that spot that you feel most at ease with, and Despina's (Greek) Cafe in Raleigh, NC is that place. Like sitting in your mom's kitchen and smelling all the wonderful baked goods. It takes you back to a time where it was fun to get in the kitchen and enjoy family time and comfort food. Wonderful pastries, baked goods, panini sandwiches, and Greek specialties. Not your ordinary restaurant cafe fare, it's made only from whole foods, fresh daily, with the special ingredient of "LOVE"! I had to get that line in somewhere.
It's family run with a family atmosphere. I live next door and this place is my Saturday morning sanctuary. Wonderful energy, people, and food. My favorites are the breakfast specials, chicken salad, Italian Rustic and Roasted Pork panini, salads, homemade chicken orzo or mushroom soup, almond cake (gluten free), carrot cake, scones, turnovers, well almost everything really.
I'm checking out the orange cake now! Looks good. Oh, also heard they may have dinners soon. Can't wait! Come and visit and eat cake. Opa!
