    Excellent authentic chai tea (try it cold and you'll see the difference between chai latte in Casbah and Starbucks). Great desserts, tiramisu is to die for.

    This eatery features a little bit of everything – Cazuela de pollo, Syrian salad w eggplant and tomato, poached eggs, baked goods, and even teas. Both cuisine and merchandise exude worldly influences.

    In addition to the great coffee, Ali praised the spinach pie, the caneles, and the little ham and cheese sandwich at this cozy cafe.

    2 poached eggs on a bed of greens with goat cheese (instead of feta). Ask for baguette slices for no extra charge. Coffee's bomb too...

    Good tea, decent pastries, nice looking customers. I am Lebanese & was hoping for more authentic hummus ... unfortunately it tastes & looks like it's the red pepper varietal from chef, Trader Joe. :/

    A bit pricey for what it is, but it has the best tuna melt ever! Also, the iced mint tea is delicious.

    Don't let the cute look of this place fool you! It's run by Nazi-type people, who mis-treat their employee's [ i've witnessed] the food is WAY overpriced, & it's 10$ to use the wifi! FAIL!

    Yeah they've jacked the prices a bit but you'll still pay more down the street or at lamill.
