Someone at work left a printed menu of the Tuscan Sun Cafe in our lunchroom. I took a look and saw they had gyros. I decided to give them a try. Even though they had only been open for lunch a few minutes, the place was empty except for two people outside on the patio. After my experience, I'm not surprised the place didn't have more customers.
After ordering, I was surprised to be charged over $8 (carry-out, should be no restaurant tax) . Then when they brought the styrofoam container out and handed it to me, it felt surprisingly light. Not a good sign, every gyro I've ever eaten has been a substantial sandwich.
When I opened my container, I saw a pita laid out flat with a bunch of salad on top of it. What the heck is this? Where's the meat? Then, I dug. Found the meat...two thin (1/16") slices laid flat, side by side on the bottom of the gyro, not even enough to cover the circumference of the pita. That's ALL the meat you get! What the heck, I'll fold it up like a real gyro and eat it. Then I found out it had a bunch of cheese on it. Seriously, who puts cheese on a gyro? Oh yeah, among the salad were also slices of cucumber. Who does this? There were also a few tortilla chips on the side, already stale-tasting like they've been out in the humidity.
The lack of meat meant the gyro was practically tasteless. It was so bad, I didn't even finish eating it. When I got back to work, I checked the menu that had been left there. It did clearly state the presence of the cucumber, and the cheese - mozzarella, feta and asiago. I then saw that this cafe is some sort of "California cuisine". I guess that's yuppie-speak for "let's turn a classic meat sandwich into a salad and charge out the wazoo for it". Guess I should have expected as much in yuppie-fied West Chester. At any rate, it was the worst gyro I've ever had in my life.
These folks might have some good food, but the exorbitant price and lack of meat on a meat sandwich convinced me to never eat here again.
