Best Middle Eastern!!

We love this low-key place, with friendly service and great food! A great array of yummy Mediterranean foods, and we find the combination plates well prepared and balanced.

I've only ordered takeout here, but the atmosphere is nice--clean, good lighting, layout spacious but intimate. The food is amazing. Shish kabob, hummus, baba ganouj, pita, greek salad, rice--everything I've had has been perfectly seasoned and cooked. Try it! There is something for everyone here.

The kebabs we had one night were tasty and fresh, but when we went back for lunch, the spinach pie was not so fresh. It was mircowaved (reheated) and that turned me off a bit. The hummus is made fresh daily, as is the yogurt (both delicious).

I adore Lebanese food so I was very disappointed with Lawrence's. The people were lovely and the service good, but the food was average. I always look forward to the warm, soft pita bread but this was crumbly and cold. It could not even hold the falafel. I complained and it still got no better. It is a good location,... More

We had not been here since they moved. Same Tony owns and cooks. We really like this location because it is closer to our house. Easier to park. Now to the food. Just like it has always been-delicious fresh and flavorful. You can actually see you dinner being cooked if you sit at the bar . We ordered the falafel... More

Lawrence's Cafe has super tasty Lebanese food. They recently moved into a space just around the corner from our house, and we've already eaten there four times. I particularly like the falafel, kefta and the baklava. Very friendly servers.

Awful service unfortunately detracts from great food. On our first visit, we were seated in a middle of the restaurant table, and we were only served after waiving down a waitress to take our order (we'd been there at least 10 minutes). Once we were served, the food was great. Last night, we were seated promptly with menus, but no... More
