So many excellent choices - you won't want to leave!

Really fresh and delicious offerings; the staff are super friendly and nice and always have a kind word. The French feta cheese is so fresh and creamy that it melts in your mouth.

Every time I walk into Sevan, I find yet another thing I can't live without. Their groceries are a terrific value and just interesting to peruse. And then there's the olive bar and the twice-as-long nuts and dried fruit bar. Plus everything they make in their kitchens is highest quality and delicious (don't leave without picking up the feta-red pepper... More

The best Lebanese middle eastern food anywhere! The grape leaves are amazing and the lamejeune are the best! Have been going to this location since the 1970s and always delicious!

I live about 10 minutes from Sevan and just recently discovered it. There are about 25 choices of olives, and many take out items. I love the smoky baba ganous, muhammara, and spicy feta dip. Even the pita breads are exceptional. The baked goods look good, but I haven't tried them. This shop is now a regular for me.

Sometimes I can't believe my good luck. Sevan's is just 15 minutes away from my home in Cambridge, and it makes me feel like I have been to a wonderful Mediterranean bazaar where I could pick up delicious unusual food the likes of which I would never expect to find in my own country! I always go a little wild... More

I should upfront, I can only vouch for one food item at Sevan's. That being said, everything in there looks absolutely delicious. But the thing I've tried, the stuffed grape leaves, and absolutely incredible. They may be the best ones I've ever had. What are you waiting for, go get some!

Like those cartoon characters that float on the air, drawn by an amazing scent? That will be you when you step inside. It just smells amazing. Roasted red pepper feta dip? Divine. Baklava? A zillion varieties--walnut or pistachio if you have allergy to one--tons to choose from. I think at this point I've sampled them all and they're just beyond.... More

I think of excuses to go here even when I don't need more olives or baklava. It is like an old world visit. They have a very good spices section here too.

I go to Sevan for years, and I do not know what I would have done without them. Great imported foods like cheese, candy, wine, bread, pastries, nuts you name it. They also have a large selection of prepared foods that they make themselves. If you are a vegetarian or like Mediterranean food Sevan is the place to go. It... More
