Good, fresh middle eastern fare, served hot form the kitchen. The waitstaff are generally friendly and reasonably attentive, though there have been times when we felt somewhat ignored. Prices are moderate to high. The wine list is small and uninspired, but a number of decent bottles are available at fair prices. Overall, a good, reliable place.

This Mediterranean restaurant has tables with cranberry cloth tablecloths covered by white butcher paper & also has cranberry paper napkins. There was a mural on the back wall of a Mediterranean coastline, & there were some shutters on the walls. The ceiling tiles looked tired & probably should be replaced for aesthetic reasons. The menu has appetizers such as hummus,... More

Great, fresh food! Don't let the location fool you! I have been going there for years! I love the chicken Sophia and the pasta dishes! Great wine choices!

Every one of my party of 4 loved their dinners. We shared a combo app with hummus and tzaziki et al which I will dream about the next time I'm hungry. My salad with falafel, wrapped grape leaves, grilled chicken, hummus, etc was deeeelish! I can't wait to go back again and again and again.

Had been here many times for dinner, but never for lunch. Relatives were here from out of town and our son recommended the Hidden Cafe. We made reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. Service was a bit slow, but it was our waitress' first day so that was understandable. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Would have liked to... More

This is a small Mediterranean restaurant "hidden" in a side lane off the Delmar NY shopping center. It has an old worlde feel to it and the ambiance is cultural. A wide variety of food from which to choose. One dip is bright with delicious garlic and that flavor lasts. I think if you like Mediterranean food you should definitely... More

The Hidden Café is tucked away in an unassuming strip mall on Delaware Ave. in Delmar. And it is truly tucked away! Don't drive past and think they've closed for business. They are there and worth looking for. The plaza they call home is an L-shaped strip of store fronts. Go back to the corner, where the two legs of... More
