Was worth the short trip from Santa Maria, which wasn't as good for dinner as the options up in SLO County. If you don't want to drive an extra 20 miles, AG offers plenty of decent options, and Jaffa here is a no brainer. Got the chicken shwarma and you're good for the night. The cook was so cool that...

During my recent visit to Arroyo Grande, California I ate at the Jaffa Cafe. It was very delicious. When I said it was my first visit to the place, the owner offered up free taste samples. The baklava was amazing! I then had great lentil soup, roasted veggies, pita bread, etc. The food was not only great, but very reasonably... More

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.

this is a walk up and order and pay after you eat restaraunt , so self service. Everyone behind the counter was very friendly. i ordered the vegetarian falafel platter...Delish! basically a deconstructed fallafel. The falafel itself was nice and crisp outside with a soft deep herby green interior. Yum! My fiance got a lamb wrap also very tasty and... More
