One of my favorite restaurants serving authentic middle eastern cuisine. Perennial favorites on their menu for me, include their Lentil soup, Hummus served with or without lamb garnish and Pita bread, their Gyro's and Lamb shank when it is on the menu. Baklava and other sweet treats are my choice for dessert.

We have eaten here several times for lunch and a couple times for dinner, but their Sunday Brunch rules! Curry Chicken, lamb shanks, grape leaves, hummus, grilled veggies and baklava....these are only the highlights.

I have had several items on the menu, but the lamb shank is the best. If you get a chance, try the shank, the soup, the baklava and the Turkish coffee.... It's just the best!

I was impressed with the food and service. The food was different and very good. If you like trying something a little different I suggest this place. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch.

Most of us drive by the little strip malls we see everyday when we are at home. That goes double for the same kinds of places when we are traveling. But I have to say some of the magic little places are in those unassuming 5 and 6 store strip malls and they are all over the country. One such... More

When I came back from Israel, I was craving authentic Mediterranean food. I found out about Jerusalem cafe through a co-worker and had to check it out. Needless to say, it was amazing. I go whenever I've got a craving for homemade hummus and falafels. My favorite dishes are the eggplant and gyro choices. It's so amazing!

Not a bad place to go for lunch, friendly service, got our food quickly. Ordered the gyro, which was good. They used Swiss cheese which was a little different if you're accustomed the Mediterranean sandwich company. But overall a good lunch spot.
