Fig Tree Cafe and Bakery is a little treasure. They offer splendid omelettes, great pita and humus, and the best desserts around. The gyros is also hard to resist as a great sandwich item. The coffee is always hot and fresh, and the baked goods are house made. If you land there on a day they have the coconut cake,... More

We greatly enjoyed lunch at Fig Tree Cafe. Very interesting menu explained to us by the owner. The sampler plate was an education in the delights of Mediterranean cooking. They serve locally grown and raised produce and eggs. Pleasant comfortable atmosphere and great service. Don't miss the offerings in the bakery!

Wonderfully fresh food and reasonable prices; combined with good service! What more could you ask for?! Not your standard burger/salad/breakfast menu. I had crepes with hollandaise sauce that were out of this world! I'll definitely be back!

Decided last minute to go out for Mother's Day and couldn't have been happier with our decision. They got us in right away even though the place was packed. The food was delicious and fresh! The seasoning on all of the food was perfect.

The grilled cheese was comfort food at its finest. Very good chicken tortilla soup. For people like me who can't make up there mind you can get 2 or 3 half portions which is perfect. They also have excellent unsweetened ice tea. Vegan options available.

This family-owned cafe is a little known gem. The food is homemade, interesting and delicious Mediterranean food. The owners are friendly and pride themselves on serving customers well. Our favorites include the hummus and baklava. A favorite of our company's out-of-town guests. They request to go there when they visit.

We have been going to the Fig Tree for a long time and love the food. They offer a nice mix of Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern influenced dishes. The Fig Tree can be a little pricey, and be warned: if you ask for any change to your order, expect an up-charge (and they may not tell you). I have also had several occasions... More

Cute family owned business with Mediterranean tucked away in a strip shopping center. Oh! And the homemade desserts are to die for. Large servings and reasonably priced. I take all my visiting family and friends there for breakfast and lunch.

Food was just okay. I had a salad that was the special that day. It was okay but I thought the price was high for what I got. My friend ordered a gyro which came on, what looked like, a store bought pita. This place has a Mediterranean vibe so expected more from the gyro. Service was okay, not great.... More
