It's on Pearl Street. It is good. It is fast. What else can I ask for ...? oh, and, of course, I came here because of vegetarian options. Perfect for a quick healthy bite.

The owner was giving out free samples of his falafel in the morning and was thought it was delicious so we decided to go back for dinner and were not disappointed. Falafels are smaller than we are used to, but they had such good flavor....More
