We blended flavors of the Mediterranean with the culture of California and rolled them into our NEW Wraps. Our grilled chicken or tender steak are paired with grilled vegetables and guacamole, our fresh-carved gyros with zesty tzatziki, or our falafel with hummus and roasted red pepper sauce. Plus, mozzarella and feta cheeses on all add to the mix of boldness for a wrap well worth a trip to Daphne's!
Eat Well. Live Well. with Daphne's new Wraps!

This yogini loves Daphne’s menu options, and my
favorite items are the ones with cucumber. Want to know why? Cucumbers are
magical. Yes, I know magical may seem like a bold statement, but
hear me out.
Not only are cucumbers sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low cal, they are also an an excellent source of:
-vitamin A, which supports good eye health, a healthy immune system, and proper cell growth.
-vitamin B6, which stabilizes blood sugar levels.
-vitamin K, which prevents bruising and strengthens bones.
-minerals such as silica, potassium, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.
And besides being chock-full of vitamins and
minerals, cucumbers also come in handy.
Gardeners claim that if you place a few cucumber slices in an aluminum pie tin it causes a chemical reaction that only the bugs can smell – and the bugs hate it! Ever wonder why beauty spas love cucumbers so much? Cucumber slices placed on the skin will release phytochemicals that, for a few minutes, tighten wrinkles and cellulite. Even rub a slice of cucumber over a mirror and it will eliminate the fog while leaving your bathroom smelling like a spa.
So like I said – Cucumbers – Magical.
