Welcoming and friendly chef-proprietor with a charming, positive attitude and an interesting, adventurous, international as well as cross-country life and career story to tell. Delicious and beautiful Mediterranean food. Authentic, well-varied dishes, thoughtfully crafted, with distinctive, inventive ingredients and combinations. Very healthy and vegetarian-friendly, too, though also with plenty of meat available. The restaurant is good to sit down in small groups or for takeout, and it has a burrito-bar setup that allows for easy customization. Well-priced for those with modest budgets, though slightly out of reach for people with very limited incomes. Maybe the owner could add more low-priced sides or samples of their excellent food to cater to every income level, as well as those just looking for a snack. While keeping median price points high enough to stay profitable and in business. Still, without question a great success, full of delicious, authentically Mediterranean, and healthy options, one well-worth visiting.

The menu online looked good so I stopped in for the first time today. I was really impressed! It's like a burrito bar setup where you can look at the toppings and build-your-own meal. Prices were good and the food was really tasty. I got the falafel but was told I should come back and try some of the meats if I wasn't vegetarian (especially the lamb). I might try one of the plates next time because of the recommendation, although it's tough to deviate when you found something great on the first try! I'll definitely be back
