I've been coming to tissa's forever, and i have yet to figure out how to DESCRIBE this place to people. It's Moroccan food, but it's assembled into sandwitches and wraps that are unlike anything you can get anywhere else. It's so unique, I've stopped trying to understand how they put them together. I just ask them to 'give me something... More

I believe the offiical name of this place is Tissa's Le Souk du Maroc and The James Soda Fountain. Besides ice cream which apparently is made in Avon, CT, the food at Tissa's is North African (Moroccan) and Mediterranean Fusion. Located in a very historic building full of charm, there are two sections to the place. One side has dining... More

We've lived in the area for about 15 years, and only about 1 year ago did we notice this restaurant. But we thought it was an ice cream shoppe. We didn't know it was a Moroccan lunch deli until we did a search for restaurants on Trip Advisor. For sure, we didn't see a sign on the outside that said... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner a few nights ago. The restaurant is small (make reservations if your party is greater than 2). The aromas struck us as we entered, and the coziness made us feel right at home. Service was prompt and genuinely friendly. The food was outstanding, very authentic, flavorful, and plentiful. We took home leftovers and enjoyed them... More

Living in town, we have visited Tissa's numerous times. We are NEVER disappointed. The food, the ice cream, the atmosphere, Kathy, her family and staff are wonderful! Living on the shoreline is a real treat...having Tissa's in town is the "cherry on a delicious sundae".

Tissa's is a small local deli and shop with character and charm, inside what was once an old drugstore, back in the "olden days". Tissa is warm and friendly, and makes a lovely tasty veggie wrap sandwich (along with many other selections) which I enjoyed eating while looking at the Morrocan items which decorate one half of the shop. I... More
