Doesn't matter how you spell it, they've got them here, AND THEY'RE GREAT! Chicken, beef, or lamb. I just can't give it 5 stars overall for two reasons: 1. Since there's no table service and the place is way overdue for some cosmetics; 2. The guy that took my money and gave me change was still wearing the plastic gloves... More

Excellent food and menu. The cooks are friendly and knowledgeable. I think most people would be more. Comfortable with take out.look carefully for the sign or you may drive past it.

At first it may seem like a middle eastern restaurant next to walgreens and Newport Mart, but they actually have quite the variety! Falafels, all that good stuff. But my favorite meal here is actually a good restaurant. Good food and service. only issue is parking.

Very friendly owner. Great falafel wrap! You can always call ahead and pick up or dine in. The best quick bite you will find on the island!

They make delicious sandwiches in the exact way you'd want them. The hot sauce they used is magnificent. You can get a great meal ~$10

Absolutely blown away at the quality of the food. The mix of flavors are absolute perfection!! Get the lamb schwarma wrap with everything. It will be the best decision you've ever made. The baklava is homemade and totally worth a try if you aren't stuffed from your meal.

I'm a once-a-month or more patron that is just getting around to writing a good review. I've yet to have a bad lunch at this place - not a date night dining experience, but if you want quality Mediterranean food you can't beat this joint!

I'll start by being up front, if you are looking for ambience International Pocket Café is not for you. If you are looking for outstanding Mediterranean cuisine you have found it. My husband and I love Mediterranean food but too often we find restaurants do not use spices liberally enough and what could be great food is bland. The Pocket... More

This restaurant is about the food - not the ambience. They have wonderful Greek Pockets and salads. Serving size is good. Prices are fair. Lines tend to be long (because it is popular). Sometimes they give me a small piece of Baklava for free (:. This is a good place to go for tasty and healthy food.
