Description: In both Hebrew and Arabic, the word "sababa" is slang for "awesome," "fun," or "cool." But it originates from Arabic poetry and literally means "ardent love," or "fervent longing." At Cafe Sababa, we strive to offer you an awesome, fun and cool culinary experience with our fresh, authentic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes including grilled chicken, fish, beef and lamb, and we hope you will develop an ardent love for our food and a fervent longing to visit us again and again. Chef/Owner Doni Tamli has over 25 years of restaurant and catering experience. A native of the seaside city of Acco, Israel, Chef Tamli brings his knowledge of the spices and cooking styles of the Mediterranean and Middle East and offers his unique versions of traditional favorites. Chef Tamli owns Cafe Sababa with his wife, Ann, a third-generation native Atlantan. Their two sons, Ariel and Gil, work in the restaurant as well. We offer dine-in, take-out and catering services. Cafe Sababa's lamb burger was noted as a "Dish Worth The Drive" on Atlanta Eats TV in November 2013. The restaurant was voted as one of Atlanta's top Middle Eastern/Eastern Mediterranean Restaurants in a poll by the Atlanta Journal/Constitution in 2012, and was honored by the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce as the runner up for the 2011 Best of Dunwoody "Good Eats" Business Award.

We had a family get together here, our party of 9 arrived early and was seated quickly. It is not a large place, so we were smart to get there when we did. It soon filled up! Our party ordered a variety of dishes. The soup of the day was a vegetable curry soup that was out of this world! My husband and I each had the falafel platter and enjoyed every bit of it. The hummus, baba ganoush, falafel and chopped salad were all fantastic. My son had the fish platter and was very happy with it. My husband’s uncle enjoyed the beef Kabab platter and my inlaws were both happy with the chicken shawarma they ordered. My daughter enjoyed her falafel appetizer. Over all a wonderful meal and if we lived closer, we would be frequent patrons.

Go there. The food is great. Seems all family run. Only draw back is not open on the weekends. Best roasted lamb sandwich ever. They also do different specials daily. We had two different meatball specials, one chicken and one lamb which we loved. We have eaten here about seven times now and not gotten anything we did not like. The sandwiches are good size and most are under $10.
Go.....and enjoy.

What great Middle Eastern food! I have eaten here many times and it's always fantastic! Think the falafel and hummus are especially outstanding. The salads and other vegetables are always very fresh.
You can't go wrong at this moderately priced, but terrific restaurant.
Note that Cafe Sababa is not open on weekends.

Ok people it's a hole in the wall cafe. They have Limited seating but the food and service is outstanding. They are only open during the week from 11:30am-2:30pm then they close in preparation for the dinner service from 5-9pm closed the weekends. It's a family owned restaurant with maybe 4 employees. they do take out orders and you can call in orders as well as online. This will be one of my go to stops when I'm in th edunwoody area.
