Very good falafel and gyro. Quick and easy stop in the Dupont Circle area. Great price. When the chef asks if you want spicy, say yes.

I wanted to love this place. I love hole in the walls with fantastic food. However, I was terribly disappointed by this. I can overlook old, kooky, and eccentric, but I can't overlook filth. This place is FILTHY. Just disgusting layers of dirt and grime...More

We (two families) stopped in on a whim for lunch, as the Cafe is close to our hotel. Best falafel sandwich I've ever had! Gyro eaters said they were the best ever, too. Family-owned restaurant for 27 years; all food cooked from scratch. Great find!

Ordered a lamb gyro and chicken shwarma. Both were average. The meat was chopped which I am not used to. Food was really oily as well. I guess for 8$ in DuPont circle you can't ask for more.

Stopped here for a quick lunch while in DC doing errands. The lamb gyro was amazing, with garlic sauce. Came with a generous portion of fries as well. Highly recommended.

Very modest joint, but perfect for a tasty middle eastern lunch, dinner or snack. Not a chain. Something for everyone.
