“Wonderful Greek food here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We dined with a group of 8 women and we all had othing but raves for this small cafe. The hummus, shish taouk, rice and beans were all excellent. All the food is home made as are the sauces. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly and the restaurant is immaculate. You will need to call in advance for reservations as the restaurant is quite small and tables are closely set by each other. Be prepared for somewhat of a noisy atmosphere where your conversation can be overheard by those at the next table. This minor inconvenience can be easily overlooked when you consider the wonderful dining experience here. Don't miss this place if you are in the area. What a jewel!

“Special meal prepared for ou anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2012

Yesterday was our 20th wedding anniversary. We had enjoyed Cedars a couple of times before, so I called two days in advance and asked if they could do something special for us. I gave them carte blanche. The chef/owner was delighted to do it and she prepared a four course meal, explaining each dish and soliciting comments after each course. We tasted two wines and chose a Lebanese white that was perfect. We never asked the price of anything and the final bill was less than half of what we thought it would be. The whole experience was terrific, maybe the best of my life.

“Delicious and Flavorful Middle Eastern Cusisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

We did take out from Cedar's Cafe.

We ordered the Fatoush, the Tabouli, Hummus, Beef Schwarma Wraps, and Shish Taouk.

This was a meal fit for a king. Flavorful, well presented, and it survived the ride home.

The leftovers were gratefully enjoyed by all the next day.

Absolutely delicious.

“Tuck yourselves away for a bit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2012

Delish food, helpful staff! Make reservations and make them well in advance (early in the day), small space/limited seating. Food is bought and cooked fresh so when they run out of food, you're outta luck. Great for vegetarians. I do want to add that because of the small space/limited seating, it's difficult to have a private or intimate conversation with your dinner mate because the tables are so very close. You will tend to hear everything being said by the tables surrounding you. So, though the ambiance is intimate/romantic, it can be difficult in a small way. That being said, this little place is wonderful!

“Wonderful Lebanese Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2012

Visiting friends in Melbourne who suggested Cedar Cafe. We had never eaten Lebanese food and loved it. The dishes were fresh and flavorful. There was a garlic white sauce that was addicting. The staff was friendly & service was a little slow but to be expected on a Saturday night.
