Cafe Falafel is a must- visit eatery in Cleveland. We tend to search out highly-rated Middle Eastern restaurants as we have travelled extensively in the Middle East. Cafe Falafel is the best we have found in North America. It is a tiny place, mostly take-out, with two tables inside. We arrived on a Sunday, shortly after opening and were the... More

What a gem in Cleveland! We had a falafel plate and were treated with a taste of the awesome lentil soup. We will definitely return here every time in Cleveland. Closed on Tuesdays, but great food every other day!

My son and I were looking for some good Middle Eastern food when I was visiting Cleveland recently so I looked at TripAdvisor and found Cafe Falafel. Bottom line up front: this is mostly a carry-out place but the food is as authentic as you will find anywhere -- each meal is cooked to order with great care. We arrived... More

The whole family loved this place. I have 3 kids under 11 and they ate everything. They especially liked the rice in the combo platter. All the meat is tender and spiced well. Hummus is great. I wish I ordered more bread.

Something you will remember! Not much seating room with two small four top tables. ...but if you can get past eating with plastic forks from a to go container, the food is tasteful and well presented. Falafels are special.

The food here was absolutely amazing! Unfortunately it will be a while before I eat here again. 😭 thankfully it is not very far from the airport. I had the beef shush kabob dinner meal. The meat was incredibly tender and juicy. The sides that came with the meal were very good as well (veggie salad, hummus, flat bread, and... More

I have been to Cafe Falafel on several occasions now and have to say this is a nice little neighborhood restaurant with the best hummus and falafel around. Love their soups, too. Great neighborhood feel when you go inside. Clean, organized and so friendly. Nice that they have outside tables for the nice weather. My only complaint is in trying... More

My teenage son, a plane-loving amateur airplane photographer, was at Cleveland Hopkins airport taking pictures of a rare plane taking off for Denver today. Afterwards we were looking for a quick dinner before heading home. We happened upon Cafe Falafel near Fairviee Hospital. What a great dinner and friendly owner! The falafel was delicious and my son told me I... More
