Respond to Review of Calactus Cafe
by Ken4057

Review: We came here on an east coast trip b/c we'd heard so much about it and waited outside til the restaurant opened (we waited with two other groups - that's how popular this place is). It's in a nowhere section of industrial Moncton in an unremarkable building, but the interior is warm (feels tropical) and inviting. The staff was friendly (some were of the French Canadian family who owns it). But food - oh my - was everything people said it would be. We had a massive hummous platter, a falafel plate, and a curry sandwich. The hummous was robust and fresh and came with unforgettable pesto-infused pita bread. The falafel was, without exaggerating, the best falafel I've ever had (tiny, crispy, with chunky bits of chickpea in it and a magical flavour with garlic overtones), and I live in downtown T.O., where you can't throw a pita without hitting a joint that serves it. We ended up taking the sandwich home we were so stuffed. Not cheap, but reasonable considering quality and quantity.

Pardon me for suggesting that, but on such a dull, rainy day and given Moncton's unforgiving architecture, it certainly felt like it. :-)

The reviewer below wrote "a nowhere section of industrial Moncton in an unremarkable building." Calactus is actually located within walking distance of downtown and the university. It's about a 7 minute walk to Main Street.
