The food was great. Falafel comes with green olives so next time I would have them skip that. The hummus is homemade and serves plenty for two. It’s a small place only five or so small tables.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was really impressed. Had the chicken shawarma which had a wonderful charcoal and garlic taste. Very small with basic surroundings, but extremely friendly service from the owner. I’ll definitely be back!!
