This was our 2nd attempt to try the new Decatur location of Lawrence's Cafe. The first time, we wanted to get takeout on a Saturday night, but they don't do it until 8:30 pm on Saturday nights. The second time, tonight, my daughter and I made it to the restaurant and had to wait 45 minutes for a table. Part of the problem is that every table seats 4. Do the math. There were lots of tables for 2, with 2 empty chairs.
Anyway, we had a lovely meal (falafel platter and salmon entre) and ordered 2 takeout plates for those left at home. When we got home, we discovered they had not put in the pita bread, which was a disappointment. The dessert was a tiny pastry for $3, another disappointment.
Overall, we expected better from Lawrence's. We will give it a couple of months to find its footing, dealing with an influx of eager patrons in a small space that is not quite accommodating.
