If you enjoy falafel, fava beans and/or eggs and potatoes, great place to enjoy a breakfast or brunch. Down to earth neighborhood gathering spot for meeting others in lively conversation.
Not great view or huge seating area, but enjoyable food and friendly atmosphere.

The selections at Shish are largely what you would expect at a Middle Eastern cafe: gyros, chicken shawarma, hummus plates, baklava. But there are also delicious home-made soups and burgers and fries. All of the food is freshly made with quality ingredients, most of the dishes are healthy (perhaps not the burgers and fries) and everything is delicious. Also the prices are very reasonable.

I think it lacks that real Mediterranean flavoring. But the location, quality and service is fitting for college area.

A perfect deli-style place for good, inexpensive middle-eastern food. Delicious hummus, baba ghanoush, homemade soups, gyros, chicken shawarma, baklava, and a very good selection of teas. Homey, campus-life type of atmosphere but with plenty of space and seating.

We found this place by accident while visiting Macalester College with our daughter. Excellent food, good service, great atmosphere. A must if you are in the area. You won't be disappointed.
