A first glance one would think it's just your typical coffee shop. But don't be fooled by the simple surroundings. The food was surprisingly good, and the spices used brightened everything. Great hummus.

Great assortment of authentic Middle Eastern Food. We all enjoyed the assortment of food we tried. Baklava was great. Pita Bread and Hummus another must order. Kabobs was tasty and flavorful. Located in the middle of town and easy walk to many shops.

My wife and I both had the Gyro which was truly authentic...real lamb meat, not the kind they slice off a spindle, great sweet tea and outstanding baklava for dessert.

Really great food! I am picky with Mediterranean food and they are one of the few places I have liked.

Pretty good Mediterranean food, but not as good as what we have in Dallas. I had the Chicken Dijaja Salad and it was very healthy. Staff was nice and accommodating to our large group. Definitely save room for the ice cream - that was the best part!!

I'd go 10 stars if I could! We noticed this place while walking around the cute town of Manitou Springs and decided to get take out that evening - it was fabulous. 3 of us had the kebab plates that came with hummus and warm fresh pita - best hummus we've ever had. One of us got the Sahara Gyro... More

Saw this had good reviews on Trip Advisor so we tried it. It is Turkish food I believe. Very different than anything I usually eat. I think I had the chicken platter and my wife had the meat platter. The wait was very short to get our food and there was a lot of it. Tasted great and the service... More

My husband and myself decided to skip the hike and get some food today due to the weather constantly changing. With that being said, we stop at this cute little gem just off the main drag. I wish I had taken a photo of our plates but they were amazing. The service was great, very friendly. You can tell there... More
