After just a couple of years as Leenah's Deli, the long-standing Greek market at 1035 Lincoln Street has changed ownership and is now called Melit'as Greek Cafe & Market. New owner Maria Gibson took over the deli about six weeks ago from Nader Wadhen, and while the menu does have a few small changes, you can still get all the Greek classics, and regular patrons will notice little difference in their favorite lunch-time treats.
The cafe and market are open for breakfast and lunch, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. For more information, call 303-629-1624.
