Nice salad here for lunch. Skip the spanokopita. Was told the falafel was great. They charge for drink refills.

I've been going to International Cafe for years. The owners are always there and are super friendly. They once offered my dog scraps of meat while we ate on the patio. Everything on their menu is fantastic, but I strongly recommend the Combination Plate or...More
