Great med food. Hummus is definitely something to remember about. Generous portions. Staff are really great as well. Kids meal a bit pricey.

The food here is wonderful. The falafel was so good that I stopped back in the next day--just to get a take-out order. The lamb gyro was seasoned just right, and the hummus is fresh and tasty.

I was visiting my son and he wanted me to try this place. I am not very adventurous when it comes to trying new foods but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was fabulous. I have been won over!

A vegetarian, a gluten intolerant, and a carnivore walk into a restaurant..... and all were satisfied. Delicious chicken and lamb kabobs, salad, falafel, hummus, sage tea, etc. Thank you - we will be back.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
