Foursquare Tips

  • Love the Baklava!
  • The folks who work here are the nicest people on the planet. Really. The food is great, with a selection of fresh foods, grains, spices, and fruits. The people are better.
  • This place has everything. Pace yourself.
  • Fantastic meat pies and the best fool in the city, by far
  • Gotta grab a spinach/cheese and lamb/potatoes pie from the case!
  • My favorite place to get spices and fresh baked pita. Try one of the savory pastries from the back counter!
  • Try their homemade Lentil Soup in the refrigerated section. One of my favorite easy meals!
  • Good service and food!!! LOVE IT!
  • Want a dinner in? Stop by to pick up fresh, delicious pitas & hummus, spinach pies, and other gourmet food items!
  • Check out their heap spices sold in bulk and dry tea and coffee beans too! Great place to stock up for a picnic!
  • Since 1981, this well-located family-owned Middle Eastern grocery and bakery has been a neighborhood mainstay, selling breads, dips, savory pies, sweets, and a global selection of groceries.
  • Be sure to visit the deli counter in the back to pick up some fresh feta; a dozen falafel; or a spinach-and-cheese and lamb pie (amongst others). Homemade lentil soup, too!
  • I like the beef kabob entree.
  • A large selection of unique items.
  • Fantastic grocery store! Their meat pieces and selection of breads is great
  • Great spice selection! A little pricy but good for the rare items
  • The cafe is open!
  • Mediterranean spinach cheese and pesto pizza w/ homemade harissa hot sauce
  • The spicy hummus here is spreadable perfection. Don't kid yourself that you can make do with only a small container of it.
  • I love their mamoul, especially walnut, and i appreciate that it doesn't have powdered sugar on top, because then i can eat it in the car on the way home.
