We stopped in here because the littles wanted some ice cream. Mom and dad decided to share a sampler platter and get the kids some cheese fries too. Everything tasted great and was fairly priced. Nothing fancy, just good quick food!

Fantastic falafel! Service was good and it was nice and low-key. Perfect for a late lunch when I arrived in town.
