Restaurant Review: Cosmos Cafe

Last Sunday, I wanted to use one of my Groupons for lunch somewhere. We decided to go to Cosmos Cafe in Wauwatosa because it was close and we had been there once before, and it was delicious.

We got there about 12:30 and the place was packed--it's not a very big place (there are about six tables and some counter seating), but the line to order at the counter was almost out the door. It's a really cute place with a family-diner atmosphere. The menu isn't extensive, but that's OK--everything they do is really good. Most of the menu items are Greek (Greek salad, gyros, souvlaki, spinach pie), with a few other items thrown in (like cheeseburgers, BLTs, BBQ pork).

We had a great meal and a great time at Cosmos. I ordered the Mediterranean salad, which was a huge plate of mixed greens, onions, feta, Kalamata olives, cucumbers, red and green bell peppers and Greek dressing. It came with a slice of bread that I kept dipping in tzatziki sauce (each table has a squirt bottle of the stuff--I want one!).

Nate ordered the gyro souvlaki--it had two big pieces of seasoned lamb wrapped in a pita with onions, some French fries (!), tzatziki and mustard. He also got a side of the Greek fries, which, of course, I had to help him eat. The fries were super fresh, warm and crisp, with feta crumbled on top (it was only after we finished most of them that I realized I didn't take a picture). These, too, were good dipped in tzatziki.

If you haven't been to Cosmos Cafe yet, and are looking for a cozy place for a great meal, check it out!
