I'LL BE BACK AGAIN !

Probably one of the best casual cafes in the downtown area. FYI: It's cash only, so head to an ATM on state if you usually use your card. . The food is absolutely fantastic, and the prices are great too. I am stuffed after spending less than $10. I've also never been a big fan of hummus before... read more

Mediterranean Cafe is a great restaurant for the price. You come in , wait in line, give your order, and either eat in or take out. The food fills a plate -- not too much or two little. The food is authentic. I got the falafel plate. The people are friendly and the decor is flags from all over the... More

I loved my food. It's not a place you go for the atmosphere, but it was tasty and affordable for lunch.

Lamb shorma Plate was nice. Fragrant Algerian hot tea. One problem is the timing . . . Open only midday . . . Closes at 4:30 pm so no dinner hours. Cash only.

Med Cafe serves up delicious lunch in a hurry. It is a cute place, but crowded during its limited operating hours. I love the pita wraps though I always end up with way more pita than I need - perfect for dipping in a side of hummus! Cash only.

This restaurant is everything - Good, fast, and cheap. The only con on my list is that it has limited hours.

I'm almost afraid to write this because this place is my favorite and you already have to wait in line to get in during lunch! There is a good reason for this: the food is excellent and such a great deal. For $7 you can get a giant plate of delicious mediterranean or middle eastern food. For $4 you can... More
