Taverna Agora

WHAT WE ATE: $11.95 – Homemade spanakopita, tiropita, dolmades and tzatziki with toasted pita. A nice appetizer for two or three people to share. Great, chunky tzatziki sauce. Garnished with a tastey olive, I so wished there was more than one. Pita was warm and fresh. The spanakopita and tiropita were very good.  I have never been much of a […]
