“Fabulous, Authentic ,Affordable Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Made fresh every day, small, cozy, family run " hole in the wall type that you want to know about " delicious and the most affordable meal possible. Kitchen is open so you can see exactly how much work, care and attention it takes and how stressful it can be a times to provide food that's wholesome in a timely manner ...Coffee great.

“Worst service ever!!!! Avoid this place at all cost.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

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.

“Authentic, healthy, divine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

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!
