Worst service received by owner. Attacking and insulting people because I didnt like the taste of the sample offered by the owner. For just saying that i did not like the taste of one of the salads the owner started overreacting instead of accommodating me as a new customer. Avoid this place at all cost and get somewhere else were they appreciate you as a customer.

Pita bread brimming with hummus, lamb, chicken kebab, falafel, and other locally sourced ingredients. Good coffees, fresh juices. Food is flavorful, great value for money, very filling. Owners are from Israel and know how to make everything in authentic style -- by hand, fresh, tasty! Busy, comfortable and very convenient. Shalom, y'all!

If you are looking for tasty, filling food at lunchtime then this is the place to be. The falafel is the best I've tasted outside of israel. The pitas are stuffed to bursting with hummus, tahini, salad etc and you can't eat it delicately. The hummus platter for 2 could easily feed three and each item on the plate compliments the other perfectly. The lamb and chicken pitas are also beautiful with quality meat, marinated and cooked with care. You get the feeling that the owner cares about what he gives you.

Incidently, the coffee is great too and if you go on a day when there is baklava in the cabinet it is well worth pushing your self to try some - at least you won't need dinner!
