When my dad worked in the adjacent office building, he'd come in here with his colleagues for lunch all the time. When he switched location, he didn't want to stop coming here so he started taking the family and we've never stopped eating here. Cafe...More

We've gone to this restaurant many times. There's something for every member of my family and we share plates. Great seafood includes a tuna kebab plate and deliciously seasoned broiled calamari. We also like the Tel Aviv Nachos, four to a plate, a cold treat,...More

Have eaten here a few times. Nothing to write home about but it's a decent lunch for a fair price. Have had several items and they were all average.

We had a pleasant lunch on a Saturday at Cafe Ole with the Tomato Bisque soup and Tramazzini (one with bacon, one with salmon). Excellent service and tasty food. We highly recommend this cafe.

A quick lunch while shopping. You order at the register, get a table number, and they deliver your meal to your table. Had seafood stew over rice, a pleasant dish, quickly served, Nothing fancy but good if you need a quick meal.

I've been dropping in here for well over a decade and it is always good quality at very reasonable prices. There are a number of large office complexes nearby so the lunchtime crowd does a lot of take-out or casual, fast dining in. If i've...More
