We ate here after seeing great reviews. The food lived up to our expectations. Some of the best falafel I've ever had and the other food was great as well! Get ice cream and baklava for dessert :) We were there during a busy time...More

We just happened to see this walking around Manitou... very pleasantly surprised! I had the Hummus and Gyros, my wife had a chicken dish she really liked it. They actually have a good selection of teas. Nice!

We happened upon this little place with some hesitation, but we couldn't have been more satisfied: delicious food, great price, friendly and timely service. This is an easy recommendation-- we'll be back for sure.

Lunch on Saturday with my USAF son and the wife. Hummus and tabouli were very good. My son's lamb was tender and flavorful. Try the Turkish coffee for a pick me up. The only reason for 4 stars were the few annoying flies buzzing around....More

This was a filling spot for dinner in a hurry. We really like Greek and Mediterranean food, and stopped in. It was all good, but nothing was great. To be fair, we live in a very diverse city with tons of options for Greek food...More

Humble cafe that serves excellent Mediterranean food. My wife and I have made this our default lunch destination after long trail runs. The sage tea is highly recommended :)

A decent selection of some Mediterranean food at a decent price. Nearby parking may not be readily accessible but for the public pay by the hour lots, but the walk to the restaurant / cafe is worth it when you do get there.

We had baklava, chicken gyro, and falafel plate. All this was the best Mediterranean food we ever ate.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
