Every time I have eaten food from Yafa Cafe, I’ve been blown away by how fresh, delicious, and well portioned the food is. I try to order something different every time, and haven’t been disappointed yet. The knafeh nabulsi and the makloubeh are particularly amazing...(but you may want to bring a partner to help you out with finishing them). The food is still fantastic when ordered as delivery, nothing hits the spot on an overnight shift like a shawarma platter. 10/10 restaurant, fantastic food, great staff.More

Came to Winnipeg for a visit, noticed Yafa Cafe by the warm and catchy decorations. When I tried the food for the first time I was so happy, everything was great specially Kunafeh as if you are eating it back home. The staff and owners...are super friendly and wonderful, the place is super clean and you will always get the best quality of food. Yafa Cafe is highly recommended, I would come back to Winnipeg again just to eat there.More

We always enjoy this restaurant- casual atmosphere, friendly people and really good food. Fresh food, great spices. Tonight we enjoyed a sample of a new dessert they are introducing - a rice pudding kind of dish. That alone is worth coming for.

I moved into this area a year ago and have wanted to try Yafa Cafe. I ordered through Door Dash and the food arrived hot and yummy. This is the kind of restaurant where I will order something different every time I think. There were...so many options on the menu and they all sounded delicious. Two standouts in my order was the Musabaha (sort of like hummus dip) - it was so smooth and delicious. And the baklava was incredible. All the other dishes were very good as well, with their own unique flavours. I can't wait to order again and try more of this delectable food!More

Ordered the shawarma feast for our anniversary, had the two sons over. Man when they say feast they mean it , everything was excellent from the shawarma to the salads, the hummus and the desserts. If you order one of the family meals make sure...everyone has an appetite because your going to have food aplenty. Will defiantly be going backMore
