Picked up lunch once from here, the falafels were wonderful. Good meditation food with plenty of vegetarian options. Good location, but parking can be tricky to find on Manitou Ave. We had falafel sandwich, platter and some fries - everything was in line or above...More

On the positive side of the ledger, the hommous and pita bread were tasty... and the dolmas (grape leaves) and the falafels were truly excellent. Oh--and the restaurant is located on the main drag in Manitou Springs (a big plus no matter what). Sadly, though,...More

An innovative menu, with well seasoned middle eastern items. We ate vegetarian, so I can't report on the meat. For dessert: local homemade ice cream. If you don't come for the falafels, come for the ice cream—in cones or cups, so you can sit down...More

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
