Great family-owned restaurant with the best hummus,fresh pita,baba ganoush- to die for-and memorable spanakopita. You can eat -in or take- out. The freshly baked pita is the best. Great service. Casual restaurant with booths or table. Menu on the wall with specials.And don't forget to order freshly-made deserts. I can guarantee you will return again and again, or you will... More

Tasty Lebanese style Mediterranean food. I had the vegetarian plate which included tabbouleh, humas, grape leafs and falafel. All the other items looked great as well. Also has small grocery shelves with many Mediterranean items that are difficult to get in Sarasota. Owner was very nice. Good place for vegans and vegetarians.

My favorite place for lunch- small cafe style - all homemade- creamy hummus, not garlicky served with fresh pita. I usually order a combo with stuffed grape leaves, salad, tabouli. Their spinach pie is flakey and melts I your mouth. They have a decent selection of dried figs, nuts,and other foods you can't find elsewhere. Of course beef kabobs and... More

I love mediterranean food. That said, I eat it every time and place that I get the chance. This isn't a fancy place but that's not what I'm after. The food was well prepared, looked great, and tasted great. The service was good and polite. It's a little cafe where you can sit and eat, order to go, or shop... More

My Sarasota host chose the right spot for this international American traveler. Delicious Mediterranean offerings by charming family. Store items for sale showed how valued by those originally from the region. Pride in food and spirit family owners/generations a reminder of how we all benefit from knowing each other and learning each other's cultures and cuisine. My friends and I... More

This is a cafe/grocery located in a strip mall. It is clean and the employees are gracious. I had a chicken wrap, which was essentially a gyro (same sauce and pita) and my husband had the gyro. We both enjoyed our meals and the prices were reasonable. They seem to do a nice take-out business. I would enjoy returning and... More

We've eaten here a few times and are always pleased. It's a small restaurant/grocery. You order at the counter and food is brought out to you. We've had many items on their menu, including stuffed grape leaves which are tender and flavorful, and sandwiches with balanced spicing. My favorite is the tabbouleh, which is fantastically fresh and tasty. Hummus is... More

Went here with my Egyptian friend because it's one of his favorite places. Loved the gyro and he always gets the kafta (?). So surprised it wasn't busy at lunch. It's a simple place with a small grocery and freshly made authentic food from Lebanon and beyond. They also serve turkish coffee...yeah baby!

I was really excited to try this place after all the positive reviews. The food is tasty and the owners seemed nice. However, we did not have a great experience. We had asked for the hummus along with our order. It didn't come, so we reminded him when he brought our food (shawarma and a gyro plate). They brought it... More
