My wife and I took a drive to the Cafe Sahara from North Pinellas today and was it ever worth the trip! This was our 1st time dining here and we decided to visit based on the glowing reviews from others on this site. We knew that it was going to be good from the moment we walked in and the pleasant aromas of their foods & spices hit our noses. Not only was the place charming and clean but you could actually smell the freshness of the food in the air. I had a craving for Falafel and Cafe Sahara did not disappoint. This was the best Falafel Wrap I've had in the Tampa area with crips and delicious Falafel with just the right amount of Tahini, tomato and onion as to not overpower. The wrap itself was light and crisp and allowed the flavors of the ingredients to not be undone by too much bread. It was excellent. My wife opted for the Falafel Platter which she had with Baba Ganoush and Tabouleh. She kept saying OMG this is good...and it was indeed. We followed up or Lunch with Baklavah - Pistachio and the best we've ever had! Washed them down with a small Espresso which was also spot on. This food was fresh and perfectly prepared. You can tell that the owners deeply care about their food and their culture and it shows up in the quality of both their meals and their hospitality. We were thrilled they are open on Sundays and we may drive out our way after Church once or twice a month. We liked it so much we were talking about maybe driving back down later in the week again. Cafe Sahara is now on our "Favorites" list and we will become regulars here for sure.
