This is a fantastic healthy fresh food restaurant. The kabobs were tender and lots of flavour. We found the portion size too large so shared one serve. Wine by the glass was generous and good quality.

Excellent salad, food looked yummy all around us. My co worker and I wished we had ordered what everyone else had. Food was excellent, easy lunchtime meal. Ate outside and had a wonderful meal. Tea was yummy.

Walked in and find 4LA cops having breakfast, and i knew i stumbled into the right place. Stopped in for breakfast. The waitress talked me into having chicken kabob. Very good recommendation. Chicken was tender and we'll marinated. The veggies were cooked to perfection. Wait staff was friendly. Portion was huge. Not sure who consumes that much food. Nice place.

We stumbled across this sidewalk cafe on W. 9th in downtown L.A. and were pleasantly surprised. Offering Italian & Mediterranean cuisine, they are a bit heavier on the Mediterranean options, which translates into tasty and healthy! We ordered the Turkey Panini with the spicy guac, the Grilled Vegetable Panini and the Caesar salad. We finished off with the Ghiradelli Chocolate... More

This place has great food and lots of options. The breakfast scramble is awesome. You can sit inside at a table or a bar. You can also sit outside and people watch. Service was great.

Cute little restaurant. Nice outdoor tables to people watch. Good chicken kabobs. Selections also include soups, salads, paninis & entrees. Observing what most customers were ordering, I'd say the kabobs seemed to be a favorite.

Chicken kabob is really good here, it's definitely what I would recommend. And considering the fact that it costs $9.95 only, I would say that's a great place dinner.

The service was prompt (restaurant was not crowded) and food was good. Its a great place to go to with friends but not if you are a Connoisseur of mediterranean cuisine. Would visit again.

Great portion size, delicious food and fun atmosphere! Definitely will return here again! Parking was a bit tricky but we parked at the Ralph's across the street and bought some groceries after we ate to validate our parking.
