First time at the Cafe and it won't be my last! Had the Falafel Wrap with a side of potatoes - delicious! Our server was very good about answering all of our questions. Nice atmosphere.

Very amazed with the cool atmosphere of this little restaurant. This was my first time seeing a belly dancing performance and I was impressed. The hummus was wonderful, I would only hope for better vegetarian dishes next time.

Really good fresh Mediterranean food. Lovely exotic decor. Loved the kabobs, with delicious vegetables and couscous with tomato sauce. Interesting selection of wines - we enjoyed one from Turkey. Pleasant, friendly, helpful service. Nothing ordinary about this place. Will return to this restaurant soon.

After walking around the city we were looking for lunch and decided to stop here since it was something totally different. If I lived in Asheville I would be here often! When you walk in the decor transports you to what a Middle Eastern place...More
