This is a fast food Greek spot much favored by the cosmopolitan population of this Hospital city. Close to Mayo Clinic. Kabobs and Gyros. Hummus and salads. First rate and family owned. A winner. Spotless. Not fancy. Indoor seating. Many folks doing carry out. Part of Rochester carry out service to homes and hotels.

When my son is in town, our favorite restaurant for lunch is Nupa Mediterranean Café. We like the North location because it is small and quaint. Their service is quick and friendly. For starters we share the pita chips and hummus. The hummus is the best I've ever had and I frequently stop there just to pick up a 1/2... More

I adore this place. The staff is friendly the service is quick, as you would expect from a "express" restaurant. I love the spicy gyro florettas -- YUMMY!!! I almost always get the gyro salad with extra meat because it is so good! I haven't tried anything here that hasn't been wonderful!

I knew I liked Mediterranean food but didn't know what to expect from this place. The food was excellent and so was the staff who goes above and beyond.

My favorite place to eat. I have their chicken pita with salad and it is the best. Always fresh and plenty to eat. Staff is always friendly and service is fast.

Enjoyed all the foods we ordered, but our eyes were bigger than our stomachs! That was okay, as we had pita and baklava for treats later in the evening. The Avgolemeno was epic!

This is a great place for a quick lunch. I had the chicken pita with the Greek salad and grilled veggies and it was all very good. Service was swift. The interior of the restaurant is pretty bare bones but there are plenty of tables. The place is set back from the road and is a little bit hard to... More

Best Greek food in Rochester. Usually get the food to go. Food is always hot and packaged well. Staff are friendly, patient and helpful. Gyros are amazing, and fries are excellent. Salads are fresh and tasty. Love their pita. We eat at the SW location-have actually not eaten at the NW location.

Being from Chicago I really miss good quality greek and mediterranean food. There are plenty of "gyros" places around, but many end up tasting pretty bland (at best). Those commonplace disappointments made finding Nupa all the greater. I've been here on 3 occasions, usually take out, but this most recent time was able to stay a while. The food has... More
