This small establishment is nothing to shun. The menu offers great choices and Ingredients are super fresh. Their tomato soup is supreme! And the service is friendly and swift.

Fresh, wonderful mediterranean fare. Spicy falafel is wonderful. Hummus to die for. Nice, cozy, family run restaurant.

I completely enjoyed my lunch at Petra Café. We were able to snag 2 seats at the bar in this tiny spot. My salad was fresh and full of goodies. We'll certainly be back!

I honestly didn't see all the hype about it being a great lunch spot. It's just okay if you're in the mood for Greek/Middle Eastern food. Probably about a 6 out of 10. Gyro was fine but not exceptional.

We had a wonderful lunch complete with Turkish coffee and by far the best baklava I've ever had. Cozy place and friendly staff. I'll be back ASAP :)

Great lunch at Petra. Hummus and gyro meat very delicious. Very small cafe, so expect a wait on busy days. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Fayetteville.

This cafe was cute and tiny. They are very busy, so leave enough time to eat. The food was delicious! We even had room for baklava and Turkish coffee.

The owner Saleh is from the Jordan Valley, and knows his taste profiles and foods. Good falafels, hummus, tabouleh, and mixed dishes. His gyros are sliced/prepared in advance and so-so, but his dishes are always fresh, flavorful. In this tine, charming, local space, the service is solid, and the atmosphere is always lively, happy, and appreciative. Great food, fun, friends...

Delicious!!!! Small place, big taste! Can I purchase a franchise please?!?! Everything homemade except for the protein. If I had a portable fridge on this trip, I would have purchased in giant quantities the hummus and other mouth watering offerings. I was ready to pack my bags for a trip to Jordan!

Thank NKeesee
