Vela Cafe: Fresh Sandwiches for Breakfast and Lunch
February 9, 2016 | western
Scrambled egg whites with mozzarella cheese, fire-roasted tomatoes, and fresh arugula, plus roasted red pepper aioli. These are the ingredients that come stuffed inside of a grilled pita when you order the Athenian breakfast sandwich at Vela Cafe. Paired with a steaming cup of Peet's Coffee, it makes for a quick and tasty breakfast on your way to work.
Vela Cafe specializes in sandwiches for lunch, too, so you may want to stop by midday for a fresh, Mediterranean-inspired sammy. There's the popular beef and lamb gyro, piled atop a pita along with lettuce, tomato, onions, and a drizzle of tzatziki sauce, as well as a chicken gyro embellished with the house's potato-garlic sauce. But you can also opt sandwiches packed with Black Forest ham and smoked gouda cheese, eggplant parm, or oven-roasted turkey and cranberry relish, to name just a few of your other choices.
