Diamond in the rough

The title says it all. Tiny little diamond in the rough. Small and tucked away. You could almost miss it. Service is wonderful and food is mouth watering.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! Very particular hours.... just open for lunch. However, this restaurant introduced me to the Mediterranean flavors of the world! Great prices with quality food! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Petra Cafe is one of my go to lunch spots in Fayetteville! Go check it out for yourself!

Let's put it this way. I have a friend who moved to Seattle, and said in three years he could never find a mediterranean place as good as Petra Cafe. I know people who make it a priority to eat there when they come home to visit--and I go there as often as I can! Delicious and friendly.

This cozy little restaurant is perfect for a quick lunch date with a friend that won't leave your wallet empty. The prices are fair and food is fantastic. I had the soup and sandwich combo with the Super Pocket and Potato Soup, with Grape Leaves on the side. Every bite was satisfying and I left comfortably full but not feeling... More

Great food and a nice price. We found the area restaurants to be quite high in cost but this place had good portions for fair prices. Quaint seating and super nice staff. The Gyro I had was excellent!

We arrived at this tiny restaurant at 11:30a.m. on a Sat., so expected to be in line for a while, based on previous reviews, but our timing was perfect. Two people at a tiny table just inside the door left as we walked in so we plunked down. Service is a bit slow, but worth it. The baba ganush (spelling?)... More

We both enjoyed the Petra Platter (A lil'bit of all our favourites, hummus, falafil, baba ghanouge and tabouleh). I am happy to report that I found a Fayetteville restaurant that has the flavors and fresh taste that I learned in other states / countries. The owner of Petra is from Jordan and proud of his heritage just as I am... More

Everything in Petra Cafe tastes fresh and the baklava is really great. I am a pretty harsh critic of hummus (I make my own every week), but their hummus satisfies me in terms of a rich flavor. Get the Petra Plate and you won't go wrong!

This was very good, and you can't beat the price. I had the Mayo platter with grape leaves, baba ganoush, and lamb gyro meat. And I love that they thinly slice their gyro meat!. I would definitely go back.

My daughter suggest we meet at Petra's for lunch. We went and I was glad we did. The place is small but the food is great. We had a combo plate, Turkish coffee, Humus and baklava. The service is great and the food was fresh and tasty.
