We love this type of food and try to find a place every where we go. Sahara Cafe could well be the best we have ever had! Excellent food, friendly and gracious staff, quick service, located within steps of where we were staying. The hummus melts in your mouth. Lots of veggie options. Easily handled special requests. Truly top notch.

We had the felafel basket - fresh homemade best-ever hummus with soft delicious pita and not too spicy, crunchy melt in your mouth felafel. Homemade fresh dill salad dressing over salad with just the right amount of pickled veggies. We had two pastries - the baklava drizzled with just the right amount of honey- crisp baklava with dreamy filling!! I had never had Ma'amoul- it was melt in my mouth slightly sweet but not too much short bread with a to-die-for pistachio filling. Great prices- fantastic service and i liked the simple friendly atmosphere with chess players outside and beautiful glass lamps inside. Everything is homemade and delicious!! GO THERE!

That is not an over exaggeration. We went to Sahara Cafe after reading on Tripadvisor that a similar, and more expensive restaurant was rated in the mid-thirties out of fifty-five in Manitou Springs, CO. Tripadvisor had Sahara Cafe as #1 and it did not disappoint. Great service, great waitress, very giving, wanted to please, generous proportions and great value. I had lamb kebab and my wife had the chicken kebab—both great and tasty!

Attempted to go to another cafe, and was swayed by a local Gallery owner who saw our hesitation. What tipped the scales? No preservatives or 'pre-made' corporate food with coroporate images on the menu. This is authentic food.

Sammy and his team are the kindest, and most patient with our large group and kooky demands (sauce on side, change out of fries for alternative item). The food was a hit, large portions, fresh, and authentic. The best deal was the combo, The Sahara sandwich which included a drink. I was so pleased to hear they had Sage Tea, my favorite from my travels to Morroco and Turkey.

Our group of 6 ate well: chicken shawarma, hummus plate & dolma sides. We ordered more and had tried the desserts. These are labor intensive treats of bakalava and pistachio filled dreams that are some of the best I have had. We threatened to return for dinner, but our plans took us back to Co Springs. Highly recommended, you will be pleased and charmed by the aromas, attentive staff and great food!
