Met a friend for lunch who has been coming here often. The menu is interesting and very different from common food fare. A nice change with surprisingly unique menu offereings, especially with Tata's across the street. We ordered Shakshuka with Halumi Cheese, and the Eggplant sesame on a hot place, which was served with Israeli style pita (thick, chewy, fresh). The Shakshuka was beautiful and true to what it should be.
The service was good, but we felt rushed and over-asked if we were all set. At first we thought they wanted us out, but I think the help was just bored and not enough customers to keep everyone busy.
I look forward to going again. The fresh ground coffee smelled great. Desserts looked good, and I'm excited to try other things on the menu.

Very good spot with lots of Israeli classics. Service was generally good. The shakshouka is very good as is the "Landwer breakfast," their take on the Israeli breakfast. A real downside was the side salads that come with everything: Not good. Overall a great option in this neighborhood.

Food was good, prices reasonable. We sat outside and had a lovely meal. Informal with nice salads and light dinner food. Soup was excellent. I will return.

If if were located in Coolidge Corner the lines would be out the door. Until meters are palced you can get free parking right outside. The food is delicious well seasoned, authentic and reasonable priced. Please save room for dessert. The Rosealah nutella feeds more than 4 and is amazing.

Came for dinner. THe food is terrific. The atmosphere is great. A nice evnergy but not too noisy. Good options on the menu. Ended up with a table near the door. There are two problems here- both correctable.They have a vestibule, but that door should close with a spring, and remain closed when peple are not passing thru it. It ended up propped open most of the time. The Host did try to close it, but he fought a loosing battle. It should be automatic. A second pair of doors opens directly from the restaurant to the street. This should have been marked "emergency exist only". On a 20 degree night, the wind gusts knocked over my coke. This is a great location- near Fenway. Add a sign and a spring and this will be one of the Boston restaurants that is great on one of Boston's many cold days.
