Delphi is not only a modern town in southern Greece, it is an archaelogical site that features an ancient amphitheater and the Temple of Apollo amongst other buildings and structures.  

In Greek mythology, Delphi was where the Delphic oracle, one of the most important oracles in the classical Greek world, was located.

Delphi was also the place where the Pythian Games, the predecessor to the modern Olympic Games, were held as early as 776 BC. The victors of the games at Delphi were presented with a crown of laurel leaves.

Cafe Delphi tips its hat to Delphi, Greece and all its amazing history and culture.

There are many benefits to eating Middle Eastern food. Just take the leap, open your mind (and your mouth) and give it a shot. Here are a few of the top reasons to try it:

It's Healthy!
It's Flavorful!
It's Something Different!


Mediterranean cooking has been enjoyed for many years by travelers visiting the countries in the region. The secret of the cuisine of Greece, Lebanon, and other Mediterranean countries lies in the preparation and organization of the menu and unique recipes which are handed down generation to generation. Many of the ingredients and techniques used today are identical to those used in ancient Egypt.

Food plays an important role in Middle Eastern culture. Each region has its own unique characteristics and food helps define the culture. Middle Eastern food is a cuisine built on tradition, history, and passion in a place where food is about family, friends, and celebration.

Over the last decade, the Mediterranean diet gained worldwide recognition as a way of eating that helped promote a more healthy lifestyle. Many scientific studies have shown that people living in the Mediterranean Basin who have a steady Mediterranean diet are generally more healthy.

What may be the key factor in the benefits of this diet is that the foods are low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat. Olive oil, which has the highest levels of monounsaturated fats of all the cooking oils, is the most commonly used oil in the Mediterranean diet. Studies have shown that olive oil lowers cholesterol, as well as blood pressure and blood sugar levels. By eating foods with these supposed healthy properties, studies have shown that people living in the Mediterranean Basin have lower rates of heart disease compared to those living in the United States where fat consumption is relatively the same.

So start eating healthier today, and come by Arzi's Express on Coursey Boulevard in Baton Rouge, LA. We would love to meet you if you've never been here before; and if you're a regular customer, well, we can't wait to see you again!
