We learned about this restaurant from a flyer in the newspaper, and discovered a super place. The food was all excellent - fresh, spiced nicely, appealing. I'm a picky chicken eater and it was perfectly grilled on the outside and tender on the inside. The restaurant/grocery is a family-run place with homemade recipes, I was told. I read the complaints... More

Very authentic Lebanese bite. A small cafe nestled in a Mediterranean grocery store. The food is super delicious and tastes very authentically Lebanese. They have a brick oven in the shop and they bake delicious manaeesh pies, cheese, zaatar, Kishk, Lahm bil ajeen. The hummus and baba ghannouj dishes are phenomenally delicious. The owner George is warm, gracious and super... More

Middle eastern, Mediterranean , European , bakery, deli, market. What is it..... All of the above! We have gone there for years and there is no place like it. You can find good things here not available elsewhere. Out of the way in a strip mall with potentially tight parking. If you like good things done simply In an eclectic... More

This is a great market/cafe if your into Mediterranean/middle eastern food. I've lived in the area for a while, but never went there because it's sort of hidden in the back of the shopping plaza. Definitely go try it though.

I go to the Mediterranean Gourmet Market to pick up specialty groceries. I usually stay and have lunch because everything smells so good. I enjoy their falafel sandwiches and tabouli. The owner is very warm and gracious.

I have travelled to Lebanon many times and have dined in Lebanese restaurants in many countries so I know a good Lebanese restaurant when I see it. Don't let the fact that it is inside a small Mediterranean food store fool you. The food is authentic and delicious. For breakfast I usually have the foole which is raga beans cooked... More

It's a restaurant. It's a market. It's a bakery. It's all unassuming, simple, refreshing, delicious and affordably priced. This place sells things you can't get easily get at other locations in the area. It's nothing flashy but it's a great place that I highly recommend. Restaurant. There is a small and simple menu of things like gyros, flat bread pizzas,... More

I love this place, it is peaceful, warfm and I always leave with good feelings. It is a nice place for family . They also have some products to sell. If you have been to lebanon, you will feel that atmosphere.
