We are huge fans of Mediterranean foods, especially a good baba ganoush!
They have some out door tables with umbrellas and a good area with tables and booths inside. We were seated quick, servers were very kind. Our drink orders were taken immediately (they have bottles of several beers for $2.75) and served in a frost glass bonus!!
We ordered a Greek salad and appetizer plate, plus 4 extra falafel.
First of all the falafel was delicious! Very tasty and served hot. The appetizer plate had olives, tomatoes, cheese, 2 falafel, hummus, baba ganoush and pita. Very fresh and everything was so tasty! Top baba ganoush and hummus! The pita was cold but soft and fresh- would have enjoyed it heated a little but not a big deal, just a preference.
Our Greek salad was huge! Lots of tomato, onion, cucumber, cheese and served with outa and a Greek dressing like I’d never had before. It was a oil and vinegar dressing but had some spice which Had a little heat. Nice flavors.

As a last thought we got some baklava- honestly most I’ve gotten have been a little disappointing. But after taking to one of the ladies and seeing her eyes light up with a passion for her foods- decided to try a piece. They have 4 flavors: coconut, date, pistachio and walnut. Of course we asked her favorite and immediately she said walnut, but followed by pistachio was her second favorite. We opted for walnut. OMGosh! It is the best ever! The phyllo dough for crust was multi-layers, flakey, a little crisp but not in the least dry! Biting into the filling of walnut was a dream a combination of lightly sweet, nutty and rich buttery flavors all married together making a party in my mouth. Honestly, it was that good! So good in fact that we bought one more piece to enjoy later tonight, or tomorrow.
This is defiantly a place I’ll return. Enjoy!

I'm just going to say the food is excellent! The four of us ordered different items and all of us found it delicious. Service was fast and courteous and the prices are very reasonable. They are located In a strip mall and it doesn't look fancy, but that's usually where you get the best food- a restaurant owned and operated by family, not a chain. I highly recommend the Pita Cafe!

What a joy to find this Lebanese jewel in the Deep South. Kibbeh, kafta, kebob. Plus felafel. Also talapia and catfish. Good ol boys in front and the industrious Lebanese chef in the back. When she comes out, just say Shukran and you will make here day

Excellent food and service, their gyro and sauce is amazing. I had passed here so many times and finally decided to try it. Delicious, homemade and lovingly prepared. The pride of the owners is obvious especially in their service! It was refreshing how they warmly greeted a lot of the customers who must be regulars. I want to return and try a lot of other items on their menu that looked fantastic.
