Delicious, decent size and variety

For me as a vegan (and I won't speak for all vegans), going into your average falafel joint can be slightly anxiety provoking. They might get that you're vegetarian but will the bread and sauces be vegan? Sometimes it's as simple as leaving out the tzaziki but not always. That's why it's great to have a specifically vegetarian falafel shop that clearly indicates what's vegan. I stopped to try this place last week before seeing a movie down the road. They have a number of different takes on the falafel and these are available either as a sandwich or a plate with all the meal components separate. I ordered a simple Lebanese version as a plate and it came - as maybe I should have anticipated - with quite a bit of packaging even though I was dining in. At least this was biodegradable. The falafel was delicious and filling, the service friendly and helpful. There are novel flourishes to the traditional and I was offered a lentil and quinoa salad instead of/as well as the standard tabbouleh. Seems like a good, reliable place to return to when I'm in that part of town.

Pros: Nice falafel, Good variety, Vegan options clearly labelled
Cons: Significant non-reusable packaging
