I love Cafe Paprika, even though sometimes it gets a little crazy busy and you might have to wait for a little bit. Why? Well, first of all the owner is incredibly nice and friendly and wants everyone to be comfortable, happy and to love the food. Secondly, I love the food ! So fresh, every single time.

We visited Cafe Paprika in November 2016 for an evening meal. The atmosphere was what you would expect in an English cafe and the food was reasonable if not exciting. The service was rather slow and not very professional. Some of the crockery and drink cans were cleared before the main course was served but most were left to clutter... More

Small place with big flavor! Menu was filled with a variety of choices including vegetarian options. Food was great. Only problem was although service was VERY friendly it was very slow. Only one server the night we visited. With that being said I am anxious to go back again.

My brother and I ate at the Cafe Paprika last night and enjoyed two shared entrees-- a delectable eggplant dish, and a tizane featuring beef and lamb sausage. Superb taste. Owner is very friendly and enhances the dining experience

This is they type of restaurant you are so happy to have in your neighborhood. The owner, chef is walking in talking to you. Simple, Super CASUAL booth service. They type of place you can eat all the time, but have FANTASTIC, not fast food, not simply burgers, meals. This is the real deal. Amazing. The only negative is that... More

We visited for lunch as we have before and ordered one entree and an appetizer. The food was absolutely delicious- chicken was well done and juicy and the rice was very good with a number of spices without being spicy. We also finished with almond cake as dessert but the highlights were the main lunch and the appetizer which was... More

You could call it mediterranean but it is more turkish than anything else. Ask for Lahson, and simply tell him what you want, and it does not have to be on the menu. On the small side maybe 10-12 tables at most. Big front windows and it smells great when you walk in It does not have a liquor license... More

We've eaten at Cafe Paprika twice and everything we tried was just terrific: fish tagine, vegetable tagine, lamb dishes, lemon cake, coffee. The menu is packed with unusual, interesting choices, but still includes some standards for those who might be less adventurous. The owner is friendly and helpful. Definitely try this restaurant!

Daughter wanted something exotic for dinner, so she checked TripAdvisor and found our destination. It was a great choice! We were greeted by a warm and smiling host. As we discovered, the host also doubles as "the chef AND the owner. Lahcen Abaichi opened his dream eight years ago and his heart-felt efforts do not let you down. Both my... More
