Great food

The hummus lacked flavor but all of the other food was top notch. The chicken was some of the best we've ever had. You also get a lot of food for your money. Great place!

Brilliant babaganoush and delightful dolmas, followed by a very generous portion of lamb kebab. The staff were very friendly and the price was very low. We were only there for two days and went twice!

Service was slow, but one of the waitresses didn't show up for work. Much sympathy for the girl running around like her hair was on fire trying to take care of tables both inside and outside the café. Got our orders right though and was polite despite the stress. Food was FANTASTIC. Ate all of mine, finished off my wife's... More

I think this is the best Mediterranean food I've ever eaten. Family ordered different items that we've had many times before at various restaurants- kabobs, gyros, hummus, tabouli, baba ganoush, falafel, tahini. Every item was much better than typical, a definite cut above. Not a typical tourist eatery. Fresh and delish. Came back again the next day!

The atmosphere was great and so was the service. There were plenty of choices and very good prices. We had the beef and chicken kabobs, the chicken was my favorite. There was so much food, no way you'll walk away hungry.

Heart of Jerusalem Café seems non-descript but their food is surprisingly good. If you like falafel, hummus, gyros, tzatziki, you will not be disappointed here. All of those items were delicious. The waiter was funny and attentive. He truly engaged with us - though he seemed like a pro at it. The sage tea was delicious. The dolmas were a... More

Was unsure if I was in the mood for this type of food and very happy I went. Great variety of food, even kid friendly menus, great service, and incredible food. The portions are large and very reasonable. Authentic. Indoor or outdoor seating next to the creek. Right by shopping and public parking. There was a disturbing intoxicated pedestrian outside...

I loved the fantail shrimp dish and my family enjoyed the chicken and beef. Their sage tea was great and the staff were very friendly.

We did not expect to find Middle Eastern food in Manitou. There is not much in the way of family eating establishments in Manitou, most places are bars full of rowdy college age people. It was great to find a quiet, family dining place with food my kids like. My children are adventurous eaters and love trying new things. Both... More
