“Much better than Mona's. You will not regret your visit”
Reviewed July 19, 2009

I have been going to Babylon for years because it's GOOD. It is VERY good. Mona's is a couple minutes from my house but I drive all the way across town on a regular basis to get to Babylon because I cannot resist it. The portions are HUGE, for the same price as everywhere else. And, it tastes better than everywhere else in town.

I recommend the Greek Salad. It'll be the best (and largest) you've ever had. The vegetarian plate is great, the falafel sandwiches and, according to my boyfriend, the gyros, are perfect. Hummus is creamy and rich. The staff is always very warm and happy.

You can bring your wine and they don't charge a corking fee, unlike other places.

Reviewed May 14, 2008

If you go here, you MUST get the Lebanese Tea. It is the lifebringer. The nectar of life. If Babylon Cafe expanded into a chain, without losing its commitment to excellence, world peace would be a feasible probability. Oh, and the sandwiches on the back of the menu are enough to fill anyone up.
