My go-to place when I need to get dinner for the family and prices that are more than fair. Where the locals eat for sure!

Really nice kabobs with the accompanying hummis and felafels. The ingredients are fresh and the meats are well prepared. Conveniently located on South Lake near Del Mar. Good food.

Since my first trip to MC, I've been back again and again for take out. Since I was in the area and need to grab food for the familia, MC was in order. For the price of under $10 per plate, I got the chicken, lamb and lule kebab..and that was enough for dad's lunch the next day. While the... More

Freshly made and very well made. The person on the till was very helpful in explaining the details before I ordered. Their Humus was even better than many restaurants in middle east . Garlic & chili paste further added the fun to felafel's. Highly recommended.

My research group at Caltech has a weekly science meeting. We are a group of about 11 and we give the group lunch. I have for 2 years picked from about 4 restaurants that we like and ordered lunch. One of those restaurants has been the Mediterranean Café. I order the afternoon before and pick up lunch at 11:30. I... More

Had lunch picked up for my team and I really enjoyed the lamb, vegetables and hummus. I highly recommend visiting this place whenever you are in town.

Usually you can only be 2 of the 3, but this place hits all 3! Also, I'm writing this review as a local who works in the area, and I have never heard anything negative about this place. I love the kefta, shawerma and falafel wraps (in that order) for quick lunches (or dinners), but the plates are also great... More

I had a delicious chicken kabob plate that included hummus, Greek salad, rice, and two kabob skewers. Everything was fresh and tasty. We arrived after 6:30pm, so we had to do take-out, but the person at the counter was very polite and friendly about answering our questions about the food. This is now on my list for return visits.

This is not for a fancy dining experience. I would describe it as "fast food efficiency with dine-in quality." We come here when we need to grab food on the go, but we don't mind coming here with friends on a Saturday afternoon when we have a craving for Mediterranean. I love Mediterranean food, and this place has been consistent... More
