We do not sell alcohol but customers may BYO their wine or beer to enjoy with meals. We have recently introduced a corkage charge of $5 per person to help cover the costs associated. Regards, Linda

El Attar Middle Eastern Grill offers a wide selection of authentic Middle Eastern dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. Grab a flavoursome shawarma or fresh falafel wrap for lunch, or come for a hearty char-grilled dinner followed by homemade Egyptian sweets. We have a range of Arabic softdrinks, teas and sweet and strong Arabic coffee. We also serve shisha in a hookah, a traditional water pipe. A selection of Middle Eastern groceries is also available in store.
