Daphne's Greek Cafe is a privately owned fast food restaurant chain operating in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon and soon in Washington with over 80 locations. They serve Greek food in the fast casual dining style, in their case involving ordering at the counter and receiving a number for a server to deliver the order to the table if the customer is dining in.

Daphne's Greek Cafe is actually the dba for Fili Enterprises, Inc. The company attributes the name to the character Daphne of Greek mythology whom the god Apollo desired. The company opens locations in strong commercial areas such as shopping centers and office building complexes near other fast casual or fast-food restaurants. The restaurant tends to draw strongly from the lunch crowd, and has a menu subsection of lunch specials to that effect.

Daphne's was rated #11 in 2006 Top 100 Movers and Shakers in the Fast Casual magazine.

Named after the Greek symbol for excellence, Daphne’s Greek Café is a trendsetter in fast casual. The 70-unit chain recently implemented an English-speaking course for its employees. Throw in the best chain gyros and you’ve got one heckuva restaurant.
