I just had the most delicious Fattoush Salad, it starts out Vegan, but you can add cheese, chicken or falafel. The spices and dressing were divine! I added the falafel because it was baked, and I was looking for something healthy and good for my...More

I guess people have varying opinions on their falafel. I think the falafel pita is great. But my favorite is the vegetarian panini! If you can get the special panini with cauliflower it is even better! ! The multi grain bread is local and some...More

Thank you so much for your amazing review we appreciate and respect everyones opinion but you can never satisfy everybody especially with the falafel panini. Because it's baked and not fried people have mixed opinions on it. We don't fry anything at the Hummus House,...More
