“Fantastic Pistachio Baklava”

I was just there for dessert. Good (and helpful) service. I got two pieces of the pistachio baklava. Awesome. I would give the restaurant a higher rating but I only had the dessert and feel a more comprehensive visit would be necessary. But I would definitely go again!

If you're looking for a fancy sit down restaurant, this is not it. It is a great casual little cafe! The food was delicious and the portions were generous! The gyro was very tasty and the Greek fries were fabulous! Staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be going back!

Casual diner. Ventilation was not great and you could feel the cooking nearby. The food of hummus deluxe with lamb; the hummus lacked texture (very thin) and seasoning. The lamb was tasty, but over cooked. The dolmades needed something to offset plain rice inside. Service was good. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

Four of us stopped here after a nearby movie, and had a pleasant experience. There is nothing fancy about this place, but the food is solid, the prices reasonable and the service was fine and friendly. Two of us had the gyros plate with different sides. The gyro meat was delicious and plentiful. We both had hummus, which was good but not exceptional, one had a salad and one had tabouli, which was excellent. A basket of warm pita was also served. Also ordered a cheesesteak sandwich and chicken shawarma and Greek fries. The food was all tasty, but one thing that we didn't like was the "white sauce" a creamy dressing that was served over the salad and also on the Greek fries. The white sauce does not have a lot of flavor, it is nothing like tzatziki sauce. The fries did have feta cheese on them, which was good. Would suggest asking them to "hold the white sauce." The baklava is outstanding, they have three types, walnut, pistachio and almond. But the winner desert was the "cigar" which is phyllo wrapped around a combination of all three nuts, rolled up like a cigar and doused with honey. Delicious.

Oh my gosh, I was overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of the food at this place. It was fabulous, owner/wait staff was attentive and the atmosphere was child friendly. If you are looking for a nice selection of reasonably priced "heart healthy" foods this is the place. Of course they also have "Mediterranean fries with feta and sauce" to counter the healthy offerings. I highly recommend both the healthy with the yummy. Five different kinds of baklava too!
