Tarek's is now our favourite go to diner for quick, healthy and delicious fast food in Halifax. The free welcome lentil soup on arrival is such a treat, and options for vegetarians are great. The fruit smoothies are excellent as are the platters with healthy...More

I ordered the vegetarian platter and it was delicious. It had 3 different cold items, and 3 different hot, plus falafel. The distinct tastes and individual effort that goes into each item is evident. No frills place and fabulous food!

The portions are huge! Went there for lunch and they offered some soup, not sure if it was sample for that day or they do it all the time. If you want seating, you want to go early for lunch as the place is pretty...More

A group of us go out for lunch on pay weeks and Tarek's is one of our favourites in the North End Halifax. Enter the cafe and approach the counter, they'll offer you a free sample of their daily soup/chowder. They only accept cash and...More
