This place is amazing! Best falafel ive had in my life, no joke! The owner is super funny and make sure you try the delicious drinks they offer, something like lemonade with mint. So good! Thanks Falafel!

I had a falafel pita (vegan) which was accompanied with a side of pickles and hot sauce. All the food was delicious. I was especially impressed with the freshness of the pita bread. Friendly family run business, and very affordable (50 pesos and I was stuffed)

If you fancy a break from delicious Mexican this is the way to go. Super fresh hummus, salads, pita and for a reasonable price. Go the plate with pita and you can't go wrong.

Little eat-in and take out falafel bar. Everything is homemade, the hummus and the falafel taste incredible. Let's not get started on the pita Nutella banana dessert.....! Everything is fresh and delicious. Good option for a quick snack.

EVERYTHING here is great! The atmosphere is cozy and the owner and his staff are extremely nice. My wife and my two boudoir it, and we aren't even vegetarians. Love The effort in all of the food and every time I feel like I'm eating at an old friend house. We will always eat here.
