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

Yes, really, this is not poetic license...it is a beautiful, cozy, atmospheric restaurant that ALWAYS makes me feel fantastic due to the completely welcoming and utterly gracious nature of its owner and his staff, and the care that goes into what is actually simple, ethnically classic food. The fare is stunningly consistent in its freshness year in and year out,... 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
