Very good Mediterranean food. Seems like they are always open. Good service and not too pricey for a tourist town.

Like others, we visited this cafe because we were cruising through Manitou Springs, were hungry and had read TR reviews. We were not disappointed. VERY friendly wait staff, great menu and the best baklava we've ever had! My entree was a gyro and my wife...More

We were in Manitou Springs to visit Pikes Peak. Based on the good reviews from Trip Advisor we decided to try the Sahara. It is a storefront restaurant right downtown and is not fancy. But the food quality is excellent if you like Greek food!...More

We just happened to see this walking around Manitou... very pleasantly surprised! I had the Hummus and Gyros, my wife had a chicken dish she really liked it. They actually have a good selection of teas. Nice!

We happened upon this little place with some hesitation, but we couldn't have been more satisfied: delicious food, great price, friendly and timely service. This is an easy recommendation-- we'll be back for sure.

Lunch on Saturday with my USAF son and the wife. Hummus and tabouli were very good. My son's lamb was tender and flavorful. Try the Turkish coffee for a pick me up. The only reason for 4 stars were the few annoying flies buzzing around....More

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
