Went there for lunch and had a vegetarian falafel and it was GREAT. Might have been the best I ever had. I wished I brought someone else along so I could try other things. I would definitely recommend.

Ate dinner here outdoors and were very happy with the presentation and flavor! Items included a vegetarian pita wrap falafel, spicy falafels and chopped Israeli salad. All selections were extremely fresh, tasty and well-presented. Was very pleasant eating outdoors watching traffic go by.
