Oh my goodness. The food is prepared fresh each order. Always get the home made hummus. Love the portabella mushroom sandwich. The chicken salad is to die for. Make sure you get the red tea.

We had heard of this place for years and finally stopped for lunch. At 1 PM there was a line and the room was full. I felt like we were back in Israel with the Middle Eastern menu. I had the lunch falafel and the...More
