“Best falafel ever”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This place has the greatest falafels you will ever find this side of the ocean. I first came to this place with a friend and took an instant liking to the food. The Mediterranean cuisine they serve is as authentic as one is likely to get in these parts. The hummus was delicious and more importantly very fresh. And to top it all they have a great vegetarian menu so unlike most places I get a lot of choice to pick from. The staff is pretty friendly too, so that is another plus. Definitely worth checking out.

“If you want a wrap - this is the only place to go.”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

The owner is fantastic, and gives you fresh falafel whilst you wait. The wraps are amazing and you choose what you want in it whilst they make them. Not tried the other food, except the baklava, which they also make which is also excellent

“Wow -- what a find!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We drove past this little cafe and came back the next day to try it. I'm so glad we did! It was the best Middle Eastern food we've had in the northeast. The falafel were airy light inside and crispy outside. Everything was so fresh and good. Best baklava ever, too. The eating area is small, tidy, and very clean. We'll certainly go back when we're in the area again.

“Great little dinner spot”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Husband wanted to try here based on reviews he read online. We were not disappointed at all. We each got a platter and got to try different things which was great. Highly recommend!
