“Can't resist the baklava!”
Review of Jaffa Cafe

At lunchtime you may have difficulty finding a parking place, but this little Mediterranean is worth walking a block or two! The fresh pita makes a perfect scoop for some hummus. Their generous salad will fill you, but for me, finishing with baklava is an absolute must. Maybe I should just make that the whole meal? Something to think about there!

Been to the AG spot many times. Food is very good and never been disappointed. Prices a good, with a full meal about $10

The worst restaurant we have been to. The salad was soggy with slimy cucumbers and tomatoes that were clearly sitting in the fridge previously cut up. The veggies consisted of overcooked and re-heated squash zucchini from another day apparently. The baklava was soggy, not crisp and flaky like it should be. The whole meal was inedible. Cannot belive the other reviews on TripAdvisor. Strongly disagree

My husband and I stopped here on a warm, sunny afternoon and had a lovely lunch sitting at one of the outside tables. I'm a vegetarian and loved the Vegetarian Plate, which consisted of four pieces of falafel, hummus, rice, and a small serving of salad (lettuce, tomatoes & cucumbers). The falafel was delicious: warm, crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside and drizzled with tahini. It also came with a side of warm pita bread but that was more than I could handle so my husband helped me out there. He ordered a gyro and really enjoyed it, especially with a side of the spicy chili sauce. There is a condiment area where you can select from peppers, pickles, spicy sauce, and a smooth yogurt/cucumber sauce. All very generous portions and EVERYTHING very authentic, homemade and definitely Mediterranean. We couldn't pass up a piece of baklava for dessert, which was just as outstanding as everything else we tried. We'll definitely be back!
