Food is excellent. I've had their hummus, tabouli, kibbeh, falafel, various wraps, and more. Everything is freshly prepared and delicious. I'd rate it excellent, except for the fact that it is more of a deli than a cafe. If you are looking for a lovely atmosphere, carry your food out and eat it elsewhere. That said, eating at the cafe,... More

Really good and fresh Lebanese food. Tabouli, humus, grape leaves, etc. are top notch. Atmosphere is not really suited for eating in although you can. Highly recommended.

But the food was good as take out. Saw only a few chairs and a table. Pit as are good. Has been at same location for more than ten years so it has a following. Ok for me but nothing more.

The food is excellent and considering quality rather underpriced. Someone not familiar with the authentic eastern Mediterranean cuisine might prefer to choose chicken based dishes, rather than lamb. If you are ready for a one-hour return trip to Lebanon, go for lamb ;) We have ordered a number of different dishes and salads, and never were disappointed. Looking forward to... More

If you're like us, and you think even average Lebanese food is delicious, then this is a good place for you. Cedar Cafe is a pretty bare-bones operation, with minimal ambience and food served cafeteria-style. The hummus and kafta kebab were better than average. The baba ganoush, tabouleh, eggplant salad, sambousik and grape leaves were average. The lavash that it... More

I was looking for a quick lunch spot (but not fast food) and Cedar Cafe was awesome for just that. Very simple and quite limited in space during lunch rush, but inviting employees. They offer a diverse menu of sandwiches and rice platters, as well as kind of like buffet style salads and dressings (tabbouleh, hummus, baba ghanoush). I ordered... More

It may be small but its mighty! We have been eating here since they opened and have never been disappointed. We love it soooo much then when it came to to get married we had them cater our wedding. The food is awesome and the family that owns the restaurant couldn't be nicer. The kibbeh special is my favorite hands... More

Had the lamb kabob platter. It came with hummus, garlic dip(?) and side salad. The kabobs were tender and had the right amount of seasoning. The hummus was good and I loved the garlic dip. The garlic dip was more like the hummus consistency and was very good. It's a small take out restaurant, but the food is good.

You may find fancier places to eat, but you won't find better food nor friendlier service. I've been going to Cedars of Lebanon for many years, but had a long period where work and life in general kept me from getting there. Finally, I had a chance to go today and I was not disappointed. I brought home a variety... More

Not a fancy restaurant, just a comfortable cafe with very good middle eastern food. Kabobs were excellent, including the lamb. Had never had garlic purée before and asked about it. Not only received an explanation, to include ingredients, but the gentleman came back with an extra serving for our enjoyment! Purchased some baba ghanouge to enjoy at home. Will definitely... More
