Excellent Moroccan food

We were in the mood for something different for dinner and found Cafe Paprika tucked into a very drab strip mall. So happy we tried it. The Baba Ghanouj was the best I have had--I couldn't stop eating it. We had lamb couscous and lamb tajine with artichokes and olives, both were excellent. The... read more

My favorite menu item is the Fish Tanjine served on a bed of basmati rice or couscous along with an assortment of vegies. The fish is so tender you don't even have to chew. Don't forget the homemade Hummus and fresh Falafel, both are the best I've ever had. On another note, the pita is usually stiff which is weird... More

The menu is both Moroccan and Mediterranean. I want to rave about 2 Moroccan dishes I had, Lamb Tajine with artichokes and olives and Chicken Bastilla. I believe the chicken Tajines cooked with other combinations such as Kadra, preserved lemons and olives, Tfaya, or prunes would be just as tasty. I small restaurant with friendly service and great Moroccan food... More

After reading some other reviews, we decided to visit Cafe Paprika, located in a small strip mall in Aurora, Colorado. We were warmly greeted and immediately seated. Service was excellent throughout the meal and even in departing. We ordered a combination appetizer place and got some falafels and hummus together with pita triangles. This was very tasty and we cleaned... More

I used to live in the area but moved to Fort Collins about 15 years ago. We loved to eat at Cafe Paprika when we lived in Aurora but had not been back until 2015. Unbelievably, the owner recognized me after 15 years. The food was just as good and it was great to see him still in business at... More

I love this place!!💜💜It is #1 . I really felt like I was in Morocco. You have to order the harira soup and Moroccan Mint Tea with your meal. Love the salads and Tajine too. Everything was so yummy .

We were in the area and decided to try Cafe Paprika again. The inside hasn't changed and the staff was still very friendly. We had a cup of the Harrira soup which was just as good as the last time. My wife tried the gyro sandwich with beef and lamb. The gyro was piled with meat and veggies. The taste... More

I would recommend this restaurant. The food is healthy and prepared with pride. I get this sense after speaking with the owner of Paprika. The prices are reasonable, not a bargain, but certainly not overpriced either. The presentation of the food is good It is tucked away in a small shoppette on Misissippi Ave. but seems to do well &...
