“great falafel & hummus, GF visitors can't miss this place”

Ranked #95 of 1,495 Restaurants in Colorado Springs
Price range: US$1 - US$30

Reviewed 28 June 2017

The falafels came in heart shape - and they were really one of a kind. Hummus is yummy, and also the sage tea. Portion is big for salad - chef is very generous :) The chef is very conscious on making food gluten free and they don't even allow cross contamination with other food that has gluten, so people who try to avoid gluten can be 100% secure in having GF dish - eg. the salad. It is a place that should go back and visit again. I am not very much into sweets so the only downside to me is the overly sweet baklava (but its only me, I think most people love this treat).

We came rushing into Heart of Jerusalem on a tight schedule with picky children who had no experience with middle eastern cuisine. Not only did we get our food fast, as we had requested, but it was absolutely delicious. Our kids ate the chicken tenders and fries, while the grown-ups enjoyed the chicken platter and chicken gyros. It was so good that I wish we had more time to enjoy it.

Where do I begin? How about the middle-east where spices, meat and herbs collide to give you a healthy, flavor packed meal sensation. And then bring this authentic, fresh menu to Colorado Springs and serve it in a clean environment with friendly wait staff....it just doesn't get any nicer. And charge only about $10 for a full sit-down meal!
OK- you've already figured out I like this place, but really, if you like grilled kabobs, falalfel, hummus, baklava, Greek salad, chicken schwarma, grilled pita bread, lamb, etc., you're gonna enjoy this place too. Add hot sage tea and some tabbouleh to round out your meal and - BOOM - you're a happy camper!
Small place in a small shopping center, but do yourself a favor and visit this place.

Went to lunch here with several friends. The décor was Middle Eastern as was the food. The five of us enjoyed it immensely. I had a chicken kabob dish which was great, another had lamb which she enjoyed. The rose tea was also very good. The complimentary baklava dessert was good, but very sweet. It usually is. Service was excellent and they were very busy!

We tried the Falafel sandwich with was packed with flavor and fresh ingredients. We had a side of saffron rice that was both beautiful and delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Everyone we encountered was smiling and happy. We love that, it makes the food taste even better!
