The food here is amazing!! One of the best Greek salads with gyro that I have ever had! Very friendly casual atmosphere.

Lost track of how many people j have introduced to the place. Fresh vegetables, squirts of lemon juice and olive oil and a sprinkle of herbs. Absolutely succulent gyro meat, warm pita, actual green lettuce, tangy olives ... Need I say more?

The two fellows that run this place are great. It is a simple process with a long line most days. The food has always been great though. The prices are not bad either, I would recommend this for sure if you are wanting something from outside Minnesota.

I LOVE this place. Seriously the BEST HUMMUS ever. I make it at home but can't get it this creamy! Salad is super fresh. They cut it when you order. Warm yummy pita. Even the rice is great. If you don't get there early be prepared to stand in line. The gentlemen working keep the line moving and you will... More

I've been visiting Omar for many years. Always great, always a long line at lunch time, always worth it. They're so friendly and the food is so good.

My wife was coming downtown for lunch and asked me to take her for Greek food. I knew there was one option. We both had HUGE portions of very good gyro platters. Such a great meal!

We shared one of the salad combos and we were so glad we did. It went on for days. And everything is being made in front of you. Really liked the sauce on the falafel. Tasted different than others I've had. We were there at an odd ball time, 3 PM. So it was fairly empty. I would imagine the... More

My coworkers and I rave about the garlic dip and the kabob special and Fridays (and now Wednesdays by popular demand!) Tiny little cafe with two sweet men working behind the counter. I think they're starting to recognize me as "the garlic girl" because I ALWAYS ask for the dip. If you like Greek, you have to check this place... More

This is a small little greek cafe that I probably would not have found had I not been specifically looking for greek food. I am so glad I did find it because it was incredible! When you walk in it is just a small little shop and there was just one man working. He was very friendly, and had great... More

I almost don't want to write this review because I don't want to have to share this amazing place :) I had Trieste Cafe recommended to me by a coworker and since then have been back many times. It is located in the lumber exchange building and is just a small storefront on street level. The food is authentic, delicious... More
