The Gypsy Café is also a Hookah lounge. The place is very low key. The humus was tasty but the kebobs were just okay. The prices were reasonable and the service was good.

Great place to smoke hookah! Get your drink on. Smoke some good shisha. Great view to people watch as tons of people walk by to Didi Reese to get ice cream cookies. Relaxing place. Only bad thing as is the case with all other places...More

Wow. Other reviews do not do it justice. Food is authentic, tasty and large portions. Chicken and schwarma were amazing and the service top notch. I have had middle eastern food globally and this establishment is among he top.

Day outside on a wonderful September night. Shared schwarma beef and spicy chicken dishes. Wonderful dishes and presentation, and cost was very reasonable. Highly recommend for relaxed dinner or quick snack.

The place is very friendly for lunches. I like the chicken kabobs there are very juicy and well cooked.
