We have been eating at Babylon Café for years, both lunch and dinner. Throughout that time, our food has been consistently delicious. Whether it be appetizer plates, sandwiches, salad, lentil soup or any of the vast array of entrees, baklava, tea, or any combination, you can count on wonderful portions, very fresh tasting food, and a surprisingly low bill. My only suggestion, is that the wait staff could be a bit more alert to what the diners need (lack of a fork, empty tea glass, empty bread basket, left-overs that could be boxed up, etc.). The wait staff is consistently pleasant and helpful, but they might be a bit more alert so that customers don't have to routinely ask for things. Otherwise, this is a wonderful place to have a delicious and casual meal.

During our recent visit to the area we wanted something other than creole or cajun food. We were very pleased that we chose Babylon Cafe for our dinner one evening. The Middle-Eastern food was authentic, delicious, and reasonably priced. Service was good and the interior is decorated with beautiful wall murals. We observed many people coming in for take-out also. We would definitely return to this restaurant on another visit to the area.

We were out biking in the area and stopped in for lunch. Enjoyed the Babylon appetizer plate, great home made bread and the eggplant appetizer (baba-something-not sure how to spell it) was wonderful and easily enough for four. Good service and serving sizes - we took home leftovers for lunch the next day and also some baklava, which was delicious! A lot of vegetarian choices also.

I know the food here is wonderful as I've been coming here for 4 years. Today attention to customers a little (LOT) slacking...
Artichoke and spinach dip with fingers and now a delicious looking salad wilting before our eyes!
I had tuna steak- requested 'well done', it was rare. Dee had salmon, requested 'cook through' it wasn't.
Disappointed this visit!
