The food at Jaffa Cafe is really good. I'm familiar w Greek food made at home and this is delicious. I don't like one thing. Eating on paper plates and with plastic forks. Might bring my own service next time.

Great middle eastern / Mediterranean food, for reasonable prices. Be sure to walk right up to the counter, and fill out an order sheet, then put your name on it, so they can get you your tasty food! No waiting for a server - once your order is ready, they'll call your name, and you'll pick up your food. Everything... More

We love the vegetarian wrap. Very tasty and satisfying. We are not vegetarian but we do not miss chicken, or beef with this wrap. Keeps us "full" for quite awhile.

I have tried several different things on the menu and have been happy with all of them. I love the chicken pesto salad, the wraps are good as well as the combo plate with gyros or lamb. The pitas are wonderfully fresh and the garlic sauce is to die for. We've had the lentil soup and even the baklava. All... More

Jaffa is one of those special little restaurants that consistently offers amazing Mediterranean fare. We get it to go a lot but also love to sit down for lunch when our guests come from out of town. The owner and his wife are super nice and very engaging. This place truly embodies life on the Central Coast!

I have been meaning to review Jaffa for some time now. The people are fantastic, the owner gets to know you by name (if you eat there like we do!) and the food is exceptional! I am never disappointed by the quality and taste of the food here. Must go if a visitor or a resident of our community!

The falafel wrap/sandwich is delicious and satisfying! Plus there's a condiment buffet that's makes it delicious to the last bite. The owner and the staff have been very friendly and welcoming every time I've been there. After you order, there's seating inside and out. I wish it were open a little later.
