    I come here specifically for brunch and always order the same thing, country breakfast with two eggs over easy. I love the labne and Israeli salad on the side. Let's not forget the zahatar pita, yum!

    Served with puffy homemade pitas, you can easily make a meal for two from five of the appetizers. Our favorites: fried eggplant with tahini, yogurt with olive oil, and spicy cumin-scented carrots.

    Fresh pita, creamy hummus, and any kind of tagines. The fare here is flavorful and some of it hearty, but never heavy. A fairly-priced wine list and delicious cocktails makes this my St. Marks go-to.

    One of my favorite brunch places, trick is to arrive before the brunch rush. I've never been disappointed by a meal. Try the Moroccan tea with your meal it's outstanding.

    This menu always pleases my palate as it's always fresh & unique. It can be bustling since it's on St Marks but a great spot for 2. Ask the hostess to seat you away from the door to avoid the draft.

    I always love the food here! The middle eastern appetizer platter is great. And the chicken lemon and olive ravine is Divine! Get a pot of mint tea too!

    Amazing Moroccan food. Get chicken tagine with lemon and olives OR lamb tagine with Casablanca sauce and cous cous! They have a great wine selection too. You might wait a little but it's worth i

    Go after 5 p.m. when, first off, they bring a lovely tray of small dishes and let you take your pick. Try the cumin-laced beet salad, the verdant tabouli, or the carrot salad. Read more

    Great service, great food, great drinks! I had a Oaxacan Sour, The Mixed Platter, and the Lamb Charmoulla. All were amazing! You will not be disappointed.

    Don't be deceived by the simplicity of the menu! The food here is fresh, organic, well prepared and consistent. I always come back for the grilled chicken kebob over basmati rice w/ dollup of yogurt.

    Everything on the menu is extremely healthy and delicious. The dishes are large and have a comfort food feeling. The cous cous with chicken has a lot of flavor, it's my favorite dish on the menu.
  • Patricia A.
    Very nice surprise as we just saw the folks eating outside. Spicy tomato omlette was relish as was the lamb sausage. Wonderful mint tea to compliment the meal. Felt like something out of Casablanca

    You'll find all the staples at this low-key Moroccan joint, like babaganoush and merguez sausage sandwiches, plus a few fancy-pants dishes like a bastilla chicken pastry. Read more

    One of my fav restaurants. The grilled chicken skewer is delicious and extra yummy with a side of hummus. They have the best falafel I've tried as well. If I'm alone, I'll eat outside and people watch

    Mixed platter,cous cous, Bastilla and lamb tagine are great. They don't take reservations so expect a long wait - but well worth it. Never had Moroccan food before and I was thoroughly impressed.

    The tomato ginger soup was piping hot and just the trick for a cold & rainy day! My lemon and olive chicken tagine was flavorful and took me back to Morocco.

    Always so good here - best brunch in lower Manhattan! Service is good, food is good, price is good. Always busy in here, might have to wait a bit for a table, but it's worth it.

    Hummus w/ hot sauce that is amazingly hot. Duck confit that's always on the specials menu & comes w/ amazing fries. The Bastilla. Yummy salads. Lamb tagine w/ apricots & prunes. So much is so good!

    This place is incredible! One of the best breakfast spots in the area. I had Moroccan eggs and I regret coming here on my last day! I could've visited this place again if I had more time. RECOMMENDED

    great brunch. i had the benedict with smoked salmon (eggs were perfect, salmon was flavorful, english muffin was delish). comes with a nice little salad and really good home fries.

    With an outdoor seating area that looks out on St. Marks Place, you'll have plenty of people watching to keep you busy. Alternatively, the bartenders are great company as well.

    One of our favorite East Village haunts. Sit at the bar, chat up the mix of locals and have one of the best $9 eggs/potatoes/toast/oj/espresso this side of the East River.

    Excellent dinner spot with very reasonable prices, delicious food and a low-key vibe. Salmon was great. Tagines are awesome.
  • Maggie W.
    Really good service, super attentive, kept bringing more pita when we finished it! Sat us regardless of the fact they were closing in 30 min, and they didn't rush us out. Better falafel than mamoun's

    Best brunch spot downtown. Their chicken tagine/couscous is to die for! And the mango cocktail is so good! Best cappuccino in town. When in doubt, go to mogador.

    Grab the corner spot at the bar for brunch on a super busy, super crowded weekend morning. Oh and the Turkish coffee is the real deal if that's your thing.

    My Bastilla was a warm, flaky pastry filled with chicken and slapped with cinnamon - tasty! Although my friends duck confit was divine...fun atmosphere and fast service.

    Try the Middle Eastern Eggs for breakfast. They're healthy and filling. Ask for a side of Harissa if you want a little spice. Show up early to avoid a wait!

    I loved my Mediterranean breakfast - poached eggs, tabouli, hummus and za'atar bread. Really fresh and delicious. Can't wait to return and work my way through menu.

    Falafel platter(12dollars) for one is more than enough but so delicious!!! The pumpkin chickpea soup is also worth trying

    Country Breakfast w/ extra jam never let's me down. Service is great but it gets a bit crowded. Best to pick off times for a cooler experience. Also, if you dig coffee, try out the Turkish coffee

    The salmon and beets and herbed couscous is a truly stupendous dish. The kadaif with lavender honey (dessert), meanwhile, is of another WORLD. Foodgasm to the max.

    middle eastern eggs (poached) were splendid. every element I need in a great breakfast: great poach, good bread for yolk soaking, some yummy greens and a good spread option to combine the elements.

    Amazing falafel, hummus. Such rich in flavor and quality food. Pretty packed. No lunch on weekends only brunch + dinner

    Get a glass of fresh-squeezed OJ, and a side of pickles and hummus to start off. Can't go wrong with the Moroccan Benedict or Goat Cheese Omelette.

    It's settled - this is my new brunch favorite. A Moroccan twist on classic NYC brunch deviates just far enough from the norm, but still satisfies my Sunday Eggs Benedict cravings

    Roasted eggplant w/tahini and grilled lamb for dinner, moroccan eggs for breakfast, pancakes for brunch, greek salad for lunch, you name it, its good! And that new bread...

    The mixed grill was fantastic. They originally brought out the wrong dishes, but quickly replaced them with the right ones and even gave us free glasses of champagne.

    Moroccan tea is a MUST (doesn't need sugar). The veggie or lamb tagin are the way to go. Cozy authentic spot, be prepared for a wait.

    Take eggs, minus toast & potatoes, plus humus, harissa, & pita. Middle-eastern meets western brunch surprisingly well. There's a much needed 2nd location in BK as this joint is always causing a cue!

    My fave spot for Mediterranean eats. Perfect East Village ambiance. Always crowded on Fri / Sat nights + no reservations. The merguez cous-cous or any of the tagines are sure shot orders. Read more

    Get the vegetable tagine, has a lot of flavor and vegetables are perfectly cooked. Moroccan tea without sugar and ask for sugar on the side.

    Try the chicken tagine with lemon and olives and couscous. Then follow it up with a glass of mint tea and warm baklava. Incredibly good.
