Cafe Artemis (Middle Eastern/Greek), Campbell, CA

All I've got to say is "wow". The Pruneyard has found it's Greek. You no longer have to take the long, grueling three minute drive to Yiassoo, because a new souvlaki shop has rolled into town. It's Cafe Artemis, in my opinion the best ALL AROUND Mediterranean stop in the region. It is not a one trick pony, as many seem to be. This particular one has a groomed menu with every pertinent dish possibly found in the Eastern Mediterranean, from Gyros to Baba Ghanoush. 

The souvlaki, for example, was full of flavor, as it was pretty perfectly cooked and seasoned. As for the rice pilaf, well, it was delicious, though a little tough (maybe slightly underdone).Then, the desserts carved a perfect finishing impression of the restaurant with a cascade of cocoa power and ice cream wrapped around a sweet ball of authentic cream. Pinch me, please. If this isn't the epitome of great Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine in the South Bay, someone, would you give me a taste of something better?
