Agape Grill--Sunnyvale, CA

On a beautiful warm afternoon last Wednesday Jenny and I met for lunch in the largely industrial neighborhood near Stewart and Wolfe in Sunnyvale. I ordered the grilled snapper, which was one of the specials of the day.

Food came quickly. The server with my lemon soup walked with me as I found my table after ordering at the counter. The soup was simple, but on the mark--hot with a strong lemon flavor and a thick consistency not far from that of chowder. The grilled snapper was a little overdone and bony.

The pita bread was the star of the lunch. It was soft and fluffy and went well with the hummus. A server even thought to give us an additional serving without asking. The large entree plus the bread and hummus had me going away full--very full. The meal was well worth the $10 price tag.

Jenny's "lamb tender" also featured a big plate, but the lamb was slightly overdone and chewy--uncommon for a skewered meat.

You can visit Agape--and I recommend you do--anytime you like. The restaurant has six tables outside but virtually unlimited seating inside (and I mean it--the restaurant could have seated at least fifty additional diners during the lunch hour). There's plenty of parking, too, making Agape a great choice during a lunchtime pinch.
