Great food at a reasonable price. We go there often. Each cafe is owned by brothers from the city of Jaffa. They are very friendly, and you will feel like They're old friends quickly.

This cafe recently opened a smaller cafe in Arroyo Grande, which sorely needs decent eateries. While the ambiance is nothing to go back for, the incredible and spicey Turkish coffee is a reason to drop in for lunch or a snack. So is the very friendly owner, who is almost always behind the counter and always courteous. The Middle Eastern cuisine is very well spiced, with a salsa bar in case you want more, and the portions are ample amd faithful to the flavors of the Orient. It is faster, easier, and less pretentious than the crowded and mediocre sports bar next door, tho without the nice outdoor patio (altho there are small tables facing the sidewalk. Jaffa Cafe in AG is pleasant, tasty, filling, with decent variety, but far from fancy. I don't recommend it for dinner or for takeout unless you are not driving far.

Great food. Best falafels. Friendly people and great prices. Very casual atmosphere where you order and pick up at counter.

Jaffa has been a long time favorite. Whether we stop by while out and about in SLO, call in an order to pick up or go for a date night the hospitality and service are only the beginning of the experience. If you are in the mood for Falafel, lamb/chicken Shawarma or even Kebab, there are options to have it on a plate, in a wrap or on a salad. the baba ganoush, hummus and dolmas are a must add no matter how you choose to enjoy your entree. The flavors and spices of the Mediterranean come to life and make your taste-buds dance with every bite. The meal is not complete without a piece (or two) of the best homemade Baklava this side of the Atlantic....and it's true the first one is free, just ask! the portions are just right and the prices are very reasonable.

I crave the homemade baklava they sell at the register. My first visit here the owner/manager asked me if I've ever tried his baklava...noticing how he took proud ownership of them, I had to try them. He gave me one free because I told him it was my first trip ever and since them I was hooked!! I've even bought a box of baklava to go and bring to a party. Anyways, yes the food is delicious and flavorful and the service is fast and friendly. Try the sauces at the self serve. Please try this place!!!
