“Best Mediterranean food around!”
Review of Jaffa Cafe

Jaffa Cafe
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Mediterranean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 January 2017

For Mediterranean food lovers this is a GREAT cafe located in the heart of the Village! Ali is a delightful, very personable owner & chef and this is reflected daily in the quality of food and menu choices he offers.

Ali's Jaffe Cafe (and his brother's cafe in SLO) also offer large catering-size portions, if you're having a big party and don't want to be bothered with cooking. I've done this several times -- always to the delight and thrills of my guests!

Be sure to pick up plenty of his delicious homemade Tzatziki & Green sauces to garnish your meal with! And of course, no Mediterranean meal is complete without a tasty square of Baklava for dessert... Ali's is made fresh every day!

The food at Jaffa Cafe is really good. I'm familiar w Greek food made at home and this is delicious.
I don't like one thing. Eating on paper plates and with plastic forks. Might bring my own service next time.

Really good Mediterrian food, great prices! You'll be back again & again!
Outdoor seating and indoor, watch the world go by. Open for lunch & dinner. Super friendly staff!

The lunch special of soup and a wrap is a bargain filled with mouth watering delight. And a very friendly staff and clientelle make Jaffa the jewel of the village.

Great middle eastern / Mediterranean food, for reasonable prices. Be sure to walk right up to the counter, and fill out an order sheet, then put your name on it, so they can get you your tasty food! No waiting for a server - once your order is ready, they'll call your name, and you'll pick up your food. Everything else is self serve, and you pay at the register when you're done. Aside from Arroyo Grande, the family has locations in San Luis Obispo, and Santa Maria.
