Blissful Cafe Brings Mediterranean Food to Hyde Park

The kitchen team at Blissful Cafe crafts contemporary versions of classic Mediterranean dishes, each as colorful as it is nutritious. Since the cafe made its debut in Hyde Park back in February, its revamped eats have racked up a few raves. One patron says the simple Greek salad is the best she's ever tasted, a classic blend of romaine, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and feta cheese all drizzled with a Greek dressing.

Other light and filling options are the rice and salad bowls, like the chicken sautee. It features chicken seared with onion, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli over rice pilaf with warm pita bread on the side. If you opt for the veggie casserole, dig into the oven-baked strata of zucchini, potatoes, green beans, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes seasoned with garlic and dill. Blissful Cafe also offers traditional gyro pitas, stuffed grape leaves, and, of course, a creamy house-made hummus.
