Decided last minute to go out for Mother's Day and couldn't have been happier with our decision. They got us in right away even though the place was packed. The food was delicious and fresh! The seasoning on all of the food was perfect.

The grilled cheese was comfort food at its finest. Very good chicken tortilla soup. For people like me who can't make up there mind you can get 2 or 3 half portions which is perfect. They also have excellent unsweetened ice tea. Vegan options available.

This family-owned cafe is a little known gem. The food is homemade, interesting and delicious Mediterranean food. The owners are friendly and pride themselves on serving customers well. Our favorites include the hummus and baklava. A favorite of our company's out-of-town guests. They request to go there when they visit.

We have been going to the Fig Tree for a long time and love the food. They offer a nice mix of Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern influenced dishes. The Fig Tree can be a little pricey, and be warned: if you ask for any change to your order, expect an up-charge (and they may not tell you). I have also had several occasions... More

Cute family owned business with Mediterranean tucked away in a strip shopping center. Oh! And the homemade desserts are to die for. Large servings and reasonably priced. I take all my visiting family and friends there for breakfast and lunch.

Food was just okay. I had a salad that was the special that day. It was okay but I thought the price was high for what I got. My friend ordered a gyro which came on, what looked like, a store bought pita. This place has a Mediterranean vibe so expected more from the gyro. Service was okay, not great.... More

I eat regularly at the Fig Tree Cafe and Bakery. I love to have breakfast here whether it's breakfast or lunch time. The food comes with a middle eastern flair. Pita is always an option instead of toast. The eggs are from free range and local chickens, and much of the food is healthy. The baked goods are outstanding, particularly... More

Fig Tree is a great staple in this area. The bakery items are great, the sandwiches are well done, but the breakfast items are really where Fig Tree shines. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Morning. If you have never tried hummus with breakfast, you are in for a treat. Their hummus is always wonderful and their Za'atar Potatoes are out... More

My husband and I stopped there for lunch this week, and ordered the Mediterranean Sampler. The hummus was good, but the pita bread was dry and there were only a few slices. There were a few slices of very dry gryro meat, some Babaganoush, which was very watery and not tasteful, stuffed grape leaves which we did not like, and... More

We visited here for the first time today for a late lunch, around 1:00 p.m. I ordered the Nature's Bounty sandwich and my son ordered It's A Wrap. They were both very tasty, although my grilled sandwich was soggy on one side. My son and I agreed that we'd like fewer potatoes and more cucumber salad. The total was $20... More
