Never judge a book by its cover alone!

A great surprise in my neighborhood! I have seen this place for years and because of its location decided not to try it despite the fact it had good ratings. But that changed last week. What a find!

My sister lives in Phoenix and had seen the TV review of the restaurant. We were planning a small family reunion and my niece from Iowa and myself from LA googled the reviews and were really excited about trying something new and different! We each got the pita appetizer; one cheese, one spinach and one beef. The pastry was to... More

My heritage is Hungarian but we saw this Bosnian restaurant featrued on a local TV show. I traveled in the area. The food is NOT fancy. It is not a "date" dinner place. It is authentic even down to the local Bosnian beer. We really enjoyed the food and it quality. We had two different sausage sandwiches and a spinach... More

Took my 3 young kids and husband for lunch and they all loved it here. The owner was super friendly and kids want to go back! Pita was wonderful - thin jufka dough with a generous filling of cheese (sirnica) and meat(burek) and with spinach (zeljanica) Cevapi were delicious, on a wonderful home made lepinja. Will be back when in... More

Cafe Sarajevo serves wonderingly tasting Bosnian food. Try their sausage sandwichs or their gyros but leave room for the desserts and Bosnian coffee. The staff is friendly and they even taught my wife how to make their Bosnian-style coffee.

I am not Bosnian, but I have spent some time traveling around Yugoslavia. This summer I got hooked on Cevapi and Burek. I have to say that finding traditional Bosnian food is not easy. Whenever I am in Phoenix, I will be sure to go here. I thought the food was even better than the famous restaurant in Sarajevo owned... More

Cafe Sarajevo is a cute, quaint cafe. The food is absolutely delicious and the prices are very affordable. There is a nice shop inside the restaurant where you can purchase Bosnian food, etc. I have me the owners and they are cordial but not super friendly. I would recommend this restaurant if you like to try different things. The food... More

Cafe Sarajevo has amazing food and the owners are extremely friendly. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and it has a comfortable feel to it. The owners are, as I said, friendly and suggest new items to try if it is the first time there. It really is one of the best bosnian restaurants in the area. I will visit again... More
