They serve homemade ice cream. Enjoyed a cone of mocha Oreo from there as I walked around downtown one afternoon.

We stopped in while visiting Manitou Springs and were so pleased with the quality of food. Our family of three shared the ultimate platter and had a bit of everything. It was perfect!! The atmosphere is relaxing, and the staff are so friendly.

Great stop in Manitou! My husband and I both got platters and they were fantastic. Full of flavor! Our waitress was kind and always made sure our waters were full! Plenty of gluten free options. Baklava is not gluten free though :(

So delicious! We all enjoyed the food we ordered: Falafel sandwich, Heart of Jerusalem gyro, Ultimate Platter, and Hummus sampler. Good prices if you're on a budget.

If you're craving a gyro and some delicious tzatziki sauce, this is your place. Food is always spot on, mid to large size portions, and the staff is very welcoming. You can dine outside or in, and if they offer the tea, make sure you...More
