Had the lamb kabob platter. It came with hummus, garlic dip(?) and side salad. The kabobs were tender and had the right amount of seasoning. The hummus was good and I loved the garlic dip. The garlic dip was more like the hummus consistency and was very good. It's a small take out restaurant, but the food is good.

You may find fancier places to eat, but you won't find better food nor friendlier service. I've been going to Cedars of Lebanon for many years, but had a long period where work and life in general kept me from getting there. Finally, I had a chance to go today and I was not disappointed. I brought home a variety... More

Not a fancy restaurant, just a comfortable cafe with very good middle eastern food. Kabobs were excellent, including the lamb. Had never had garlic purée before and asked about it. Not only received an explanation, to include ingredients, but the gentleman came back with an extra serving for our enjoyment! Purchased some baba ghanouge to enjoy at home. Will definitely... More

Love picking up a great Mesa and hearing the reaction of guests: hard to imagine finding this level of excellence in a Burke strip mall. Try the chicken schwarma, tabouli, hummus, and zatar chips for a great summer meal.

While austere , the food is very very good. Prices are fine and the staff/owners are very friendly. I love the diner plates but the pita sandwiches are also great!

Good range of Middle East food--hummus, kebabs, eggplant, pita bread and other specialties. We like to get takeout and it's always good, fast and great value

I've lived here for a little while now, use the gym in that little area, and shop at the grocery store as well but never knew this place existed. The place is humble in decoration, but wow the food is fabulous. The price is so right for any pocket, but the food is worth so much more. It's a must,... More

Cedar Cafe was my favorite restaurant in the world until recently. I only ordered two meals there, over and over, because they were That Good. The Falafel sandwich is still excellent. But how I miss the plate of small items, mostly vegetarian and mostly served cold. I used to ask for the "Pick Your Own" Vegetarian Platter. The owner (I... More

I often eat at Cedar Café after my time in the gym in the same shopping center. The food is freshly prepared, the staff gracious and helpful, and the food is tasty. I sometimes have a sandwich and other times I have a variety from their salads and things. Anyone who likes middle eastern cooking will like this restaurant.
