Took the wife and one of my grown children to the HoJC for dinner a few days ago, while visiting Colorado Springs. Everything we had (traditional appetizers like hummus, falafel and baba ghanoush, as well as kebabs, shawarma and baklava) was good to very good, the wait staff was prompt and attentive and the prices were quite reasonable for the...

I have eaten here many times while visiting Manitou Springs. The food is consistently good. My favorites are the Heart of Jerusalem salad and the Shwarma with lamb, beef, and chicken mixed. My husband's lamb kebab was amazing, though. The salad is really a platter with a mixture of couscous, falafel, all of their meats and lots of other goodies.... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first tried this restaurant. I was very happy with the food and service that I received. The generous proportions and the many choices really made this a place that I will return to over and over. Thanks again.

We enjoyed our falafel meals and hot tea --very tasty. The portions were generous. We were really impressed with our young male server who was friendly, polite, respectful and interesting. We enjoyed eating at this Heart of Jerusalem more than the one in Manitu Springs so excellent. .

I'm a Middle Eastern and I can tell if the food is one. The restaurant looks ridiculous, but we're here for the food and it was delicious.

Great Middle Eastern Food in the heart of Colorado Springs. Their Shwarma and Humus are worth trying. My favorite is their Platter.

I could write a long review, but I won't; this place is one of my favorites. The food is always amazing, service always friendly & kind, and I have never had a negative thing to say in about a dozen meals. A hidden gem.

Before this visit, I had previously only tried their Baklava, which is amazing. What a treat the full dinner was! I ordered the Ultimate plate ($9.99- great price!) The falafel was the best I have tried in Colorado. It was lightly crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle- and in the shape of hearts. The beef, lamb and... More

Highly recommend this place for a date night or just to have some tasty food. Friendly servers, good meal portions, and the taste was unique in a good way. And the complimentary desert at the end was a nice touch
