When you walk through the front doors of Angora Café and catch a glimpse of eight small tables and a worn-out couch, you might be tempted to take your order to go. Instead, if the weather’s nice, sit outside and people-watch for a bit while you enjoy a salad, sandwich, wrap, calzone, gourmet pizza, or fruit smoothie from Angora’s vast Mediterranean-influenced menu.
With plenty of inexpensive vegetarian and low-carb options to choose from, Angora caters to the health-conscious eater on a budget. Pair a fresh side salad ($2.95) with a wrap or sandwich, or order a full-size salad and make it a meal. Angora’s mozzarella-and-tomato salad ($5.65), made with fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, and red onions marinated with basil pesto, might be all you need.
If a hearty sandwich is what you’re craving, try the Park Street ($5.95), with smoked turkey, ham, Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce and Russian dressing. The grilled-chicken-and-pesto sandwich ($5.25) has a perfectly tasty combination of tomatoes, sprouts, and romaine lettuce. All sandwiches come on your choice of French or focaccia roll, panini, or wheat, white, or pita bread.
If a salad or sandwich won’t satisfy your appetite, one of Angora’s bargain-priced platters surely will. The steak tips ($9.95) come with juicy, marinated pieces of steak, two side orders, a small Greek salad, and pita bread.
For the grand finale, indulge in a thick-and-creamy smoothie ($3.95) made with fresh fruit and sorbet, or try a refreshing dish of one of numerous frozen-yogurt selections ($4.75) like piña colada, which is made with pineapple, coconut, and kiwi mixed with vanilla yogurt.
