Best kebab I've ever had! Service was excellent, food was amazing, and it's very reasonably priced compared to other places in Manitou Spring. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Visited here based on reviews while I was in town for Garden of the Gods. Restaurants lived up to the reviews, locals seem to enjoy the place.

Well if you like Middle Eastern food, you are going to love this place. This is the best I've had in a very long time.

Prompt and friendly service. The falafel sandwich was delicious!! Shawarma (beef) in pita also very good. Casual and there is ice cream if you have room! Very good lunch, would definitely go back. Lots of choices in town but we loved this!

Very good Mediterranean food. Seems like they are always open. Good service and not too pricey for a tourist town.

Like others, we visited this cafe because we were cruising through Manitou Springs, were hungry and had read TR reviews. We were not disappointed. VERY friendly wait staff, great menu and the best baklava we've ever had! My entree was a gyro and my wife ordered a lamb kabob. Again, the dessert was three kinds of baklava! They also have...
