A friend and I were looking for something different with a casual setting. What a find with Cafe Papkria! The food was excellent, friendly attentive service and a small welcoming environment. My friend and I were able to talk without shouting and yet the Moroccan background music prevented being overheard in close quarters. I had the Lamb Royale with couscous... More

Reviews are spot-on, the food is excellent and ample. Don't expect to enjoy a beer with your meal, the strongest "libation" is Diet Pepsi. We tried three different dishes, their soup with chickpeas, which was outstanding, as well as their lemony chicken with herbed rice and something that you almost never see, preserved lemon. We also tried the lamb shank... More

Atmosphere is more like a sub-shop. The food is authentic and very good. If you are a foodie and like this type of food, you will be delighted.

My daughter found this on another site, for our Mother's Day dinner. It's fairly small and not fancy decor, but the food was outstanding. Our experience echoed others, the owner explaining the dishes to us and making recommendations. The Moroccan and Mediterranean specialties (tangines, paella, lamb, chicken, and seafood) were very well-spiced and cooked to order. We shared a flourless... More

Meet some friends here for a lunch recently. It was the first time for all four of us. What an excellent find! The food was truly amazing-nicely spiced and flavorful. The owner was most helpful in choosing the dishes- very patiently explained each. I would go early as it fills up quiet fast with a lunch crowd. Check out their... More

I ate there last night and had the paella, wow! Also, if you want a knock your socks off appetizer, get the wings. The owner was our waiter and he gave us lots of helpful suggestions and tips. We had a large group of 14, and the service was prompt, and the orders accurate. I would definitely eat here again... More

We had Lamb Royal with apricots... More

We have been eating at Cafe Paprika for a number of years. The food is delicious & the service is beyond compare. The owner is more than accommodating & will alter a dish (spices and/or ingredients) to meet customers' needs. Lahsson knows our likes/dislikes/dietary issues at this point & we feel comfortable saying "surprise me!" We've never been disappointed. The... More
