I had the Falafel Sandwich (gyro), my husband had the Lamb Sandwich (gyro). We were both pleased with the quality and quantity of the food. The fries were standard and nothing special but we ordered... More

I have been many times and the quality of taste in their recipes is always consistent. My favorite is the chicken plate. Their pita bread is perfect and they add the right amount of hummus and chicken to mix it all together. I recommend to anyone who loves Mediterranean dishes and this is very authentic.

I live in Manitou and love the local cuisine and culture of Manitou Springs. When I want fresh food and don't feel like paying a furtune, I go to the Sahara Café. Jessi and Ester are great servers and the make the best coffee drinks. I can always count on having a great meal and service! Thanks.

My husband and I stopped in here for dinner and found their menu to have lots of great selections. Jessie gave us great service and allowed several substitutions to meet our needs. We tried quite a variety of different items and found everything to be great. We had the veggie appetizer and The kebab sampler platter. Food came very quickly... More

We stopped in here because the littles wanted some ice cream. Mom and dad decided to share a sampler platter and get the kids some cheese fries too. Everything tasted great and was fairly priced. Nothing fancy, just good quick food!

Fantastic falafel! Service was good and it was nice and low-key. Perfect for a late lunch when I arrived in town.

Usually food here is great! It was okay this time but would have better hot (fries & gyro were cold)!
