We went to the Mayflower Cafe for a family birthday lunch, at the recommendation of friends. What a great choice! You should go for the wonderful food, but the whole place was delightful. The service was very good also: attentive and friendly, and that helped make a good meal even better.

As soon as we were seated, we were brought the most sumptuous warm, home-baked whole-wheat pita bread. We also ordered the home-made eggplant salad and hummus, both of which were excellent. We were allowed to pick from the dinner menu as well as the lunch menu. The lamb/beef gyros were just superb, as was the Lamb with Portobello Mushrooms.

For dessert, we tried carrot cake, which was close to perfect, and baklava - utterly sumptuous.

It was a real pleasure to eat there. We'll certainly go back.

Every time I've been in Virginia Beach, I find an excuse to eat at this restaurant. They have great food made by people who know what it should taste like. It is slightly out of the way (i.e. it's not on the strip) and it's not meant to be a place you feed kids chicken nuggets. That said, they have delicious Turkish/Middle Eastern food. It's made fresh and it tastes great! It's a nice place for lunch or a quick dinner. It's not a classy "date" restaurant, but if you like this kind of food, you will not be disappointed!

The Cafe has two rooms, the "cafe" side we ate in and the other that seems more formal and has a bar. This is not a big place with booths and a cafe feel --not fancy. Something really nice about the place though is that it is quiet --you can sit and talk unlike so many other places that are so noisy.

There were four of us and we all enjoyed our meals. My lamb shank with eggplant over the top was very good ($19). Our entres all came with a large green salad and hot seasoned peta bread.

The Cafe offers both Italian and Turkish options...not aware of other Turkish resturants in VB.

We went for lunch and it was very good. Middle Eastern/Turkish specialties. We especially liked the homemade soup. However, when returning for dinner, we found it to be too expensive for the meals we had - lots of rice, little meat.
