I make it a habit to grab dinner here before hopping on Amtrak; it's a tradition I look forward to. There are great options for meat-eaters and vegetarians. The food is fresh and there are many healthy options -- and so yummy!

The hummus in our meal had gone bad. Unfortunately we had ordered to go and were far from the restaurant to complain about giving us expired hummus. We were glad to find a healthy vegan option but unfortunately all the "healthy" goes south when they...More

Very pleasant, smart staff. This restaurant had very healthy meal options which were all baked, high fiber, rich in antioxidants and tasty while preserving variety. An excellent alternative to fast food while not compromising taste.

You can taste the freshness in every bite, and the flavours are great. Even the vegetarian options are fulfilling! Highly recommended fast food!

I will give it props for having very fast service, and they do give you a decent amount of food. Baked falafals, however healthy they are, tasted dry. The "slow-cooked chicken" was also dry, and a bit too peppery. Major props goes to the cous-cous...More

Ok so I LOVE Falafel but I am trying to be on a health kick and I am avoiding any and all fried foods. SO, I was starving after the gym and I went here to check it out as I have never been. I...More

falafel served out of a McDonalds warming tray doesn't make the homemade pita better

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
