Step out of the ordinary!

I'm a once-a-month or more patron that is just getting around to writing a good review. I've yet to have a bad lunch at this place - not a date night dining experience, but if you want quality Mediterranean food you can't beat this joint!

I'll start by being up front, if you are looking for ambience International Pocket Café is not for you. If you are looking for outstanding Mediterranean cuisine you have found it. My husband and I love Mediterranean food but too often we find restaurants do not use spices liberally enough and what could be great food is bland. The Pocket... More

This restaurant is about the food - not the ambience. They have wonderful Greek Pockets and salads. Serving size is good. Prices are fair. Lines tend to be long (because it is popular). Sometimes they give me a small piece of Baklava for free (:. This is a good place to go for tasty and healthy food.

Our family of 5 had lunch here today. We got gyros to go, and my youngest got a phillie steak and cheese with fries. The portions are large, the veggies are fresh and the service is exceptional. This isn't fine dining, this is just really good food served with authenticity and flair. We all loved our sandwiches and would go... More

We first came to the International Pocket Cafe when our daughter first became vegetarian. At our first visit, she at the mozzarella sticks. By the time we returned, she had developed a taste for falafel and turned her teenage friend onto the falafel wraps. There are traditional meat options, such as lamb, as well as an assortment of vegetable toppings... More

Middle eastern favorites with a family run focus. They cook up fresh and the line out the door forms quickly. For some reason the customers were mostly male the day we were there, but maybe it's because the portions were so large!

When you're tired of seafood, and eventually you will tire of seafood, this little pitstop in the parking lot is a great place for a change of pace. Hailing as I do from where Middle Eastern food abounds, this place is a jewel. I've honestly never tasted falafel this delicate. I heartily recommend a visit.

We got a bunch of wraps from here a few weeks ago. The food all seemed fresh though they were out of feta (how?) and they barely put any hummus on the wrap (when it was a hummus and taboulli wrap. Other than that, the food was fabulous. The soulvaki was incredible and the taboulli very flavorful. I will definitely... More

Have been there 10 times, and always fantastic. Fresh and complex flavors. And huge. Always enough to fill a ravenous 16 yo boy.

Awesome Lebanese/Med food. Get the chicken falafel wrap loaded with everything or convert it to the same dish as a salad if you're more carb conscious. Awesome lunch option, but if you venture there at the rush, it can be a wait. Call ahead and pick it up if it's peak lunch rush.
