The Jaffa Cafe is always spot on and authentic! We come here at least once a month and always enjoy our meal.

Went to Jaffa Cafe this past 4th of July weekend for lunch. The inside is very clean and has a lot of natural light. We ate outside because the weather was perfect. To order, grab a checklist and pen. Check off what you want (make sure to note any special requests), and then turn it in to the tray by... More

Daughter wanted a second chicken shawarma pita wrap, she liked it that much. Kifta was cooked fresh to order and you can taste the fresh ingredients but I recommend getting it as a plate instead of the hard to control pita wrap. Nice people, told me that I should eat before paying.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant because she loves Greek food and we were not disappointed. We both got chicken wraps and they were delicious. The service was fast and very friendly. I definitely plan on going here again and taking my husband.

We did not have much time for lunch so the pace here was just right. The food was quite tasty and the portions generous. We shared a fattoush salad, I had a gyro pita and my wife a falafel appetizer, which was large enough for a main course. Our food was ready 5 minutes after ordering. Dining outside was delightful....

We love the Jaffa Cafe. It offers Mediterranean cuisine not common to the areal. The service is fast. The food is fresh. The staff is friendly. It is especially good for lunch.

You order at the bar and they holler out when your food is ready. Lots of hummus. It's a jolly atmosphere because Ali, the manager, is on hand with his cheery, friendly manner. They now offer Turkish coffee.

First time trying Mediterranean food and I was not disappointed! I had the combo lamb and beef gyro and it was filling and so tasty! Shared a delicious baklava with my friend and tried Turkish Coffee for the first time as well. I completely understand why they serve it in a tiny cup. A little goes a long way! I... More

This is a great little casual cafe with delicious Mediterranean food. You order at the counter a variety of dishes, including gyros, salads, plates, vegetarian dishes, such as roasted veggies. It is fast, and reasonably priced. Staff are very pleasant. Both take-out and eat-in.
