Was very good. We both ordered chicken gyros. Will definitely go back! Quiet and clean place. Right downtown. The waitresses were nice and offered suggestions.

“Best Baba Ganoush!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I'm not sorry that Tupelo Honey had a 1 1/2 hour wait, for right across the street we found Jerusalem Garden Cafe. We had no wait and enjoyed an incredible meal. The spinach pie appetizer was delicious and I could have licked the plate that my vegetarian platter came on--it was just that good (wish I could have taken home a quart of the baba ganoush!). My husband had the burger, which was a combination of lamb and beef topped with feta cheese, tzatziki, lettuce, and tomato. He is still raving about it. Our friends enjoyed a chicken wrap and moussaka that looked lovely. We will definitely be returning on our next trip!

“How come this restaurant is not in the top 10?”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I will drive here from out of town just to eat here. BEST Mediterranean food we have ever had! Great atmosphere (very authentic) and great service. Prices aren't too bad, either :) Get the lamb kabob, greek salad, moussaka....you pretty much can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The wine is great, as well!
