We stopped in here because the littles wanted some ice cream. Mom and dad decided to share a sampler platter and get the kids some cheese fries too. Everything tasted great and was fairly priced. Nothing fancy, just good quick food!

Fantastic falafel! Service was good and it was nice and low-key. Perfect for a late lunch when I arrived in town.

Best kebab I've ever had! Service was excellent, food was amazing, and it's very reasonably priced compared to other places in Manitou Spring. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

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.
