I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It is a good place for a "quick" but well prepared lunch or late night snack, which is what I had.

I'm extremely bummed. We visited last year and the food was amazing, but only convenient when we're in that part of town. Planned on attending a concert at UCF and hitting Falafel cafe first, called and got a recording. Another site says it's permanently closed. *sigh*

Good was great and the attendant was nice.although they need another person assisting. He was running around looking overwhelmed. I got the pizza with hummus and tebuleh. Came out pricey as I had to order each individual. Pizza is good but needs a dip or so. Will definitely return.

With not that many Lebanese/ Middle Eastern choices on the UCF side of Orlando, this place is a must try. Chicken shwarma with hummus and vegetable soup are delicious. About $13. Prices are reasonable and food is great! Service is quick also!

My wife and I stopped in last night; and, since it's been four years, we were very pleasantly surprised by the change in decor. We also noticed patio seating was available. The wine in the front display, under the cash register was another nice surprise. On being seated, John asked if we would like to try a Lebanese beer or... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch. First, a few places indicate this is a Moroccan restaurant. It is not. It is Lebanese. I chose the shish tawook (grilled chicken) sandwich. It was huge. The sandwich was Americanized....served with lettuce and tomato on it rather than the traditional pickles and garlic paste. Somewhat disappointing in that regard, but good nonetheless. It... More

Got the falafel appetizer and a shish tawook. The falafel was wonderful. Crunchy outside and not too dry on the inside. This was my first experience with shish tawook and I have to say it was very good. The Lebanese bread was perfect with this dish. As good as this was, if I had already seen the Avengers before I...

We tried Falafel Cafe a month ago when we decided to try a vegetarian diet. What a great find! We've only had lunch here so far but plan to try dinner soon. They have a vegetarian plate that is delicious. We (my husband and I) share this plate and have the house salad. I think my salads are the best... More
