The Falafel Palace is a great little place to stop in or get take out for two people for less than $20.
The star of the Falafel Palace is of course the falafel, little balls of heaven, great dipped in tahini sauce, hummus or with a bit of hot sauce. I always have one of the falafel plates, there are a few to choose from with options for pitas, hummus, fried eggplant, or even yam fries added into the pita.
If extra hungry I'll have a soup or split some tasty sweet potato fries with my husband. The amount of fries is large, so even a half order can be split between two if you are ordering other menu items.
There are usually 4 vegan soups available; Spicy Bean, Curried Yam & Lentils, Beet Borscht and Green Pea. I've had the first two soups, and while I would of preferred them to be spicier, found them to be yummy. The soup portion is a bit small.
The menu is clearly labelled with Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free options. There are also blitzes. potato pancakes, knishes, spanikopita, and vegan onion rings on the menu.
The restaurant is open early (6:30)for breakfast too; with eggs, hash, omelets, pancakes (potato!), waffles. For Vegans, the breakfast options are limited to the Vegan Heaven breakfast; a felafel & veggie & hashbrown plate.
A simple diner-like atmosphere, with a few booths, and small square tables that can be moved around to fit bigger parties. The kitchen is partially open to view, if you want to "peak" at your food as it's being made. Service is good and friendly, though I tend to go in the evenings.
Open 7 days a week, weekends are busy, evenings are quieter, as the restaurant closes at 9. I really wish they were open until 10, or had a separate "late night" location.
Cons: Closes at 9pm
