Recently had lunch here. Very good. Casual, family run. Extensive assortment of salads. Huge portions. Well made and properly dressed. You give your order at the counter and pay. You get a table number and they deliver the order. Tight small tables. But local place...More

As you can tell from the title, Cafe Mangal has great food, but all at a cost! It's high quality cuisine, but with a high price tag too. All the entrees I could see were priced at $15-20. My family should break our fast without...More

Nice restaurant with great choices. Ate at the cafe with the family and most really enjoyed the meal. The salad Nicoise was excellent. Personally, I found the ordering experience somewhat lacking for the price. I liked Juniper better but Cafe Mangal is worth a try.
