My brother and I ate at the Cafe Paprika last night and enjoyed two shared entrees-- a delectable eggplant dish, and a tizane featuring beef and lamb sausage. Superb taste. Owner is very friendly and enhances the dining experience

This is they type of restaurant you are so happy to have in your neighborhood. The owner, chef is walking in talking to you. Simple, Super CASUAL booth service. They type of place you can eat all the time, but have FANTASTIC, not fast food, not simply burgers, meals. This is the real deal. Amazing. The only negative is that... More

We visited for lunch as we have before and ordered one entree and an appetizer. The food was absolutely delicious- chicken was well done and juicy and the rice was very good with a number of spices without being spicy. We also finished with almond cake as dessert but the highlights were the main lunch and the appetizer which was... More

You could call it mediterranean but it is more turkish than anything else. Ask for Lahson, and simply tell him what you want, and it does not have to be on the menu. On the small side maybe 10-12 tables at most. Big front windows and it smells great when you walk in It does not have a liquor license... More

We've eaten at Cafe Paprika twice and everything we tried was just terrific: fish tagine, vegetable tagine, lamb dishes, lemon cake, coffee. The menu is packed with unusual, interesting choices, but still includes some standards for those who might be less adventurous. The owner is friendly and helpful. Definitely try this restaurant!

Daughter wanted something exotic for dinner, so she checked TripAdvisor and found our destination. It was a great choice! We were greeted by a warm and smiling host. As we discovered, the host also doubles as "the chef AND the owner. Lahcen Abaichi opened his dream eight years ago and his heart-felt efforts do not let you down. Both my... More

Great hospitality by the chef/owner. Amazing food. Any questions about the menu or need suggestions he is delighted to help and delightful. No alcohol if that is an issue.

Looking something less "run-the-mill" I found this place on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. As a European I often miss the different ingredients and styles used in European cuisine but it is often difficult to find truly authentic places. This is definitely authentic and is of a very high standard. I started with Morroccan Harrira which is a traditional saffron... More
