Respond to Review of Habibi's Cafe and Market
by Mr. Fox
Review: The cafe is located inside a Lebanese/Middle Eastern grocery. In addition to the standard Mediterranean/Mid-Eastern vegetarian food, gyros and kebabs were for sale, as well as pastries. It took me a moment to figure out that you had to order from the register toward the middle of the store. I ordered the veggie plate ($6.95; tabouli, deep fried falafels, baba ganouj, hummus, salad with lettuce and radishes, and pita bread, all served on a styrofoam plate with plasticware). Coca-Cola products were on sale at the register, but I opted to get a bottle of mango juice drink ($3.99/liter). The falafels were very crunchy on the outside, so much so that it was difficult to get my plastic fork into. Inside, they were delicious, as well as the rest of the meal. Portions were a bit on the light side, good for lunch but perhaps lacking for dinner. I followed the veggie plate up with more of the tabouli (8 oz. for $3.95) and two slices of baklava (forgot the price on that.) Despite the quirky setup, the cafe was clean, and service was friendly. I'd definitely recommend it, but I wish the portions were a bit more generous.
