Food is good and well-priced. Baba ghanoush and pita bread were excellent. The mint iced tea is wonderful if you love unsweetened tea and this is a great change from the usual fast food. Feta cheese is to die for. Bonus - the outdoor eating...More

Had lunch here: gyros, babaganoush, hummus, falafel and baklava. All were very good. We liked the minty ice tea. Since it wasn't too hot, it was great to sit outside.

We love eating at the Purple Onion! Everytime I suggest it, BOTH of my children say yes! (Which is a rarity) Always hot, always a large amount of food but a little pricey. $34+ for 3 people at lunch. And the hummus is outstanding!

The hotel staff suggested it as a local hot spot when we arrived very late. It was open 24 hours and had really good breakfast. You can tell it is a local favorite for those that work late.
