    Shandal's Vegetarian Cafe on Capital Ave. in Bridgeport is really good and CHEAP!!!! I'm really surprised they don't get more love on chowhound.

      In Stamford, I like Capriccio for salads and soups.
      In Greenwich, Meli-Melo has even better soups and good salads. It's packed at lunch, though, every day.

        We ate at EOS which is Greek. Terrific fresh food. While it is not cheap, if you order meze rather than main dishes it is not terribly expensive. I love the moussaka and for $9 you get a very nice portion--I even take some home for lunch the next day.

            We've been there a few times recently. We've had gyro (at lunch only), grilled veggies in a pita, wonderful lamb chops, and my DH has had the branzino? fish, freshly made. The food is fresh and delicious. Love the french fries and salad ,too. Not too thrilled with the spinach and string beans on the side dishes. The service is quite nice. We have really enjoyed our meals there and look forward to going back. nbermas, hope you like it!

              Why wait 'til it's warmer? I've also been several times and have enjoyed it. The pita with dips are a great entree, as are the zucchini. My friend loved his salmon, and the lamb I got was very good! It's a lovely place.
