If you just looked in the door, you would not guess that this place has such great food. Their spicy falafel sandwich is simply delicious ---- right balance of jalapeno and other spices, moist falafel balls. My wife and I often get one of these and one Greek Salad which comes with olives, 2 dolmades, and an exceptionally generous piece... More

They have so many delicious sounding wraps I had trouble choosing. I got the falafel which was outstanding. But the stars of the show are the fries and numerous dipping sauces. They are fresh cut and piping hot and perfect. I tried the BBQ Cheddar and European ketchup. I wanted to try so many more. It's also pretty cheap -... More

I crave their lentil soup, excellent fries (with choice among a dozen or more dipping sauces), great wrap sandwiches or hot dishes borrowing from many European cuisines. Small, casual, great for just a coffee as well.

I was looking for healthy, good food, fast & a very reasonable price. This place hit the mark. I got their Lentil soup & 1/2 wrap of the Grilled Salmon & Green Tea!. It was good & hit the spot post workout!

Great wraps and fries. I get the #21 Spicy chicken crispy and mozzarella. With fries and a drink the lunch special is only $7.50. For Old city at lunch that's a bargain. In our office we call them crack fries they are that good.

The wraps and fries are delicious! The wraps were filled with fresh ingredients, and we enjoyed the variety of dipping sauces for fries. We ate here more than once.

Fries are hot and delicious and there is a crazy amount of dips you can choose from. The wraps were fresh and delicious and so were the deserts. We were glad we stopped by!

Came here because of other reviews. Stopped in for dinner with the family. We were the only ones there. Kids' dinners came out first. My husband's came out of few minutes later. I had a wrap and fries (they had chicken fingers and pasta) and mine came out about 10 minutes later. Fries weren't all that.
