A good place for mid-eastern groceries, prepared foods, sandwiches and hard to find items. Great Hummus, good pita bread and olives as well. I often go for the shwarma or gyro pita sandwich, which are good but not great.

Phoenicia deli has great Mediterranean food. I usually get a chicken pita for lunch and get fresh made pita bread, humus and tabouli salad to take home for dinner.

Gyros were great, flavour and serving size were excellent. Good market with a nice variety of hard to find and unusual items. Downside is its not really a restaurant. There is a small space for you to sit and eat.

This Middle Eastern grocery store has a wonderful deli and bakery. I always get a turkey or chicken sandwich there. The sandwiches come on a crusty baguette and I get it with everything - mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato and cheese. My mouth is watering as I write this. Their bakery area has sweets like nut rolls, baklava, croissants, and cookies.... More

Nice little deli and grocery. It's a small, crowded, eclectic place, lots of variety of canned and frozen foods. Fresh made pitas of both flour and whole wheat. Lots of olives. The gyros are very tasty, as well as the homemade soups. The baklava is mouthwatering! No place inside to eat so it's carry away. Parking can be tricky.

Stop by on our way home from Texas. We bought Middle East bread or what mist people call Pita bread, and it was very good. We also bought Baklawa or what most call Baklava and it was also good. Most of the prices seemed average. Would go back again when in the area.

What most Americans think of as Arab/Meditteranean food is actually a watered down, westernized version... kind of like what Taco Bell would be to someone from interior Mexico. That said, Phoenicia makes only 100% authentic Arab food - so if that's what you're after, there is nowhere better for it. The selection of imported groceries will make anyone who's ever... More
