We had brunch at Cafe Medina one Sunday morning. We had been warned by the concierge at our hotel that the wait time could be up to an hour and had set out to find another restaurant. When we walked by and saw what looked like a reasonably short line, we joined it. In all we waited only another 15 minutes to be seated.
We ordered the Fricasse and theTagine both of which were delicious. Additionally, we ordered waffles. They are highly overrated and really poor examples of a waffle. They were thin, dry, and room temperature. Some diners may be impressed by the sauces, but we thought they were mediocre at best. An interesting twist on the mimosa is good. My partner had a coffee and Baileys.
The restaurant space is weird. There are two sections- the store front space visible from the street , and a rear space at the back of the building which is connected to the front by a long, unattractive, and poorly maintained corridor.
Service was fine, but we felt our waiter adopted a staged aloofness and edge. Prices are extremely reasonable.
If you’d asked me while I was eating if I’d go back, I’d say absolutely. After leaving the restaurant, I don’t think so. Hygiene may be an issue here. When we later observed the waffle iron through the window of the restaurant, it and the surrounding counter were filthy.
