Have been to Cafe Matinee twice lately, and both times have been very pleased. The food is of fine quality and well prepared. Service is very good, and atmosphere is fine - much more attractive inside than out.

Cafe Matinee is a neat little one-of-a-kind place. We'd never had Lebanese food and it was a great treat. Similar but different than Greek. Try something different when you go!

Unpretentious eatery with amazing food and friendly service from the family members. Sometimes we order several appetizers and make that our meal. Many choices, great for sharing.
