Lawrence's has become a regular for my family. The felafel, babaganoush, tabouli, and hummus are always great! For my vegetarian daughter, there are many options (which is always refreshing!) . For my carnivorous husband the gyro and souvlaki fit the bill. Inexpensive, unassuming , lovely down to earth friendly staff. My only issue is I don't understand why it is... More

Great neighborhood find in the Oakhurst area of Decatur. I had a sampler vegetarian plate that was very good. Everything was spot on, especially the falafal. I wasn't crazy about the stuffed grape leaves but it was a texture issue and the flavor was good. The owner is friendly and helpful, and runs a clean restaurant. Plenty of parking spaces,... More

My family and I ate here on 2/28/16. We used to live in an area where getting Lebanese and Middle Eastern food was easy. We've since moved and finding anything close to Lebanese is impossible. So, I called around to every Middle Eastern/Mediterranean/Lebanese place I could find until I found a restaurant that served toum. Lawrence's Cafe was that place,... More

I've only ordered takeout here, but the atmosphere is nice--clean, good lighting, layout spacious but intimate. The food is amazing. Shish kabob, hummus, baba ganouj, pita, greek salad, rice--everything I've had has been perfectly seasoned and cooked. Try it! There is something for everyone here.

We love this low-key place, with friendly service and great food! A great array of yummy Mediterranean foods, and we find the combination plates well prepared and balanced. I like to recommend this place for going out with a few friends. Located in a vintage strip mall, it offers easy parking and a good location on the east side.

The kebabs we had one night were tasty and fresh, but when we went back for lunch, the spinach pie was not so fresh. It was mircowaved (reheated) and that turned me off a bit. The hummus is made fresh daily, as is the yogurt (both delicious).

I adore Lebanese food so I was very disappointed with Lawrence's. The people were lovely and the service good, but the food was average. I always look forward to the warm, soft pita bread but this was crumbly and cold. It could not even hold the falafel. I complained and it still got no better. It is a good location,... More
