Was looking for a place to eat in Largo that had vegan options and found this online. We were amazed at the friendliness of the owners. The food was so tasty and the wine was also just right. We chatted with Eugenie during our meal...and the time flew by. We are on our way home to New Hampshire and this meal was one of the highlights of our eight weeks stay in Florida visiting family. A must if you are in the Largo area.More

Love Café Sahara Mediterranean! Extremely friendly owners and staff. Business is very well kept and beautiful. Food is phenomenal with healthy and vegetarian friendly options. Have been picking up food to go recently without issue. The café has very considerate service. I paid over the...phone and used their curbside assistance, but the café accepts food delivery as well. I have been eating here for years and will continue to support such an extraordinary place. Such a fantastic and healthy restaurant in our area.More

Can I give them 6 stars? The food was very fresh, & the service was excellent. We had grape leaves, tabbouli, and something I can't pronounce, it was a sort of Fava bean stew. All fabulous! The pistachio baklava was the best I've ever had!...We'll be back for the Friday night wine tasting!More

What a hidden gem! Tucked away in a strip mall off E. Bay in Largo, we found some of the freshest & best tasting Middle Eastern food around. Everything was made to order. The falafels came out so crispy & light with super soft pitas...to wrap them in. Add a side of nutty tahini and housemate hummus and you have the perfect bite. My falafel platter was served with one of the best taboulehs I’ve ever had and my husband love his classic Gyro. Oh and the pistachio baklava is a must try. The perfect sweet (but not overly sweet) & crispy finish to a wonderful lunch.More

About a dozen of us went to celebrate a birthday and have some wine at their tasting and grab some light dinner. We had a fun evening trying several of the wines and having a variety of Mediterranean dishes. All were reasonably priced for the...portions received. The staff was very accommadating and helpful. They do not have a large dining area and do a fair amount of take out business - we would try it again.More

Everything about our lunch was a pleasant surprise. When you walk in, you come directly into the side of the establishment that is a deli where you can buy various fresh items to take home. The other side has comfortable seating and table service with...a few booths and one larger table. Our lunch was excellent fresh and delicious. Service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. The grape leaves were amazing. We will return and try more items.More

I had lunch here recently and was quite pleased with my choice.. Having lived and worked in the Middle East, I appreciate authentic Middle Eastern foods. The food here is incredibly fresh and flavorful. Everything is made from scratch. None of the meat products ever...come in frozen, she buys Organic and from farmers markets.. I had a chicken shawarma and tabouleh salad, both nothing short of super delicious.. My wrap was filled with grilled marinated chicken chunks, tahini/hummus spread, Lebanese pickles, lettuce and tomatoes. It was crazy GOOD! Not only is the food incredibly fresh and flavorful, they also offer a really cool wine bar. Very cozy and intimate with only 3 booths, a long table with chairs, and a dozen bar stools to choose from. They offer a wide selection of fine wines from California, Spain et cetera. A terrific find in this part of Largo/Bellair. Definitely worth the trip, I will, for sure, eat here again. The food was amazing. The service was exceptional. Obviously it's a hands on, owner operation, and they care.!!!More

Visited for dinner. Just Tabouleh and a gyro with feta, and of course the fabulous pistachio baklava. Fresh, fresh, and fresh. Owner/chef knows how to use her ingredients to create tasty Mediterranean dishes. Very casual, reasonably fast prep, dinner was excellent.

A friend of mine told me I really should try a chicken schwarma sandwich... so I researched Lebanese restaurants in Largo... and found this awesome restaurant. I didn't see this sandwich offered on the menu, but asked the manager (owner?) about it ... she said,...sure! She would make that for me. Now it's a real favorite of mine, the sandwich and the restaurant... I stop by once every week or two, such a treat. I also tried the chicken gyro... that too was delicious. Love the food here, ambiance, service... everything is fabulous. I totally recommend Cafe Sahara... I'm so glad I tried this restaurant,,,More
