Had lunch here: gyros, babaganoush, hummus, falafel and baklava. All were very good. We liked the minty ice tea. Since it wasn't too hot, it was great to sit outside.

We love eating at the Purple Onion! Everytime I suggest it, BOTH of my children say yes! (Which is a rarity) Always hot, always a large amount of food but a little pricey. $34+ for 3 people at lunch. And the hummus is outstanding!

The hotel staff suggested it as a local hot spot when we arrived very late. It was open 24 hours and had really good breakfast. You can tell it is a local favorite for those that work late.

We ordered our food at the counter and it was delivered to our outside seating area, very little seating available inside. Food was good and it was a beautiful day outside. We all enjoyed the experience/\.

The place has a fast food feel but serves good food fast. The only drawback is the interior needs updated.
