Every dish on Neomonde's menu is prepared using simple, natural ingredients - just as Cecilia, the family matriarch, prepared them long ago.

I had visited the nearby JC Raulston Arboretum and wanted to have dinner before heading back home. After reading the reviews of the Neomonde Mediterranean Bakery & Cafe I decided to give it a try. The restaurant was crowded when I arrived and had to park down the street. They offer both outside and indoor seating. Neomonde is both a restaurant and grocery store. As you enter you will find the grocery section on the left side as you approach the counter for ordering food.

You order the food at the counter prior to finding your own seat. The menu is varied and offers numerous selections for those with dietary restrictions. I decided on the kabob platter which came with two sides of your choice. At $10 the price is more than reasonable for the amount and quality of food. With the drink my bill came out to about $12.50.

While I didn't spend much time in the grocery section, it looked like they offered a wide selection of Mediterranean food, spices and drinks. It might be worthwhile to check it out, especially if the prices are similar to those found in the cafe section. There did seem to be a steady stream of people shopping for food.

If you are in the area and looking for a good place to eat, Neomonde is definitely worth considering. While it is more of a quick-service type restaurant, the food and service are very good. You also do not feel rushed, even with the large number of people.

This is the only place I go for freshly made hummus. The pita and other bread products they bake fresh daily is also a crowd pleaser. The hot food selections that they offer for lunch help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

This was the first time my wife and I visited. This was on a Recommendation from a friend. The wait line was pretty long so we figured the food was going to be good. We were not disappointed. If you like middle eastern food this is the place to go in Raleigh. Close to the fair grounds, on a back road, if we didn't have the address in the gps we would have missed it.
