delicious food - Edit

I ordered the “vegetarian plate” which the owner said was actually vegan but that menu hasn’t been updated. Everything was absolutely delicious. I also had the Turkish coffee which was great. I will be going again next time I’m in town.

Pros: food

love this place! - Edit

Great place and family friendly too. There are several options you could choose that are vegetarian friendly (including a Vegetarian plate with delicious Falaffels).

oh so yummy - Edit

We had the vegetarian (vegan) option. It was so yummy and filling. I took home left overs. The cabbage salad is vegan now because they no longer use mayo to make it. I. Am traveling and will probably eat here again on my way home. My meal for 2 was less than $30.

Vegan easy - Edit

This place is standard Mediterranean fare of the falafel variety. When it comes down to it, this is one of the best veg choices in Birmingham, even if it is out of the main downtown. There are a good half dozen vegan options- falafel, fries, cooked beet salad, Israeli salad, cooked carrot salad and roasted red peppers salad. Pretty filling!! Good choices!! Overall- awesome for Birmingham.

However, if you are so disgusted by meat's presence, be warned they have shawarma- two huge spinning vertical spits of meat right behind the register.

Still, I guess there is good, too, in that this place is super busy and packed. This makes the food fresh.

Casual atmosphere, cafe style, with great service. The staff are moving nonstop! Good to tip generously.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Fresh and fast, Fair prices

Cons: Meat shawarma

Fresh local yummy - Edit

I was initially a little hesitant to go to Eli's as I didn't really know what they had to offer or if they even knew what vegetarian was. The owner is very knowledgeable about different diets and strives to keep items separate. The food is very good, fresh, and mostly locally sourced. They have the best pita bread I've ever had. It's warm, soft, and thick with a really good flavor. Many of their salads I had never even heard of, but were a fresh delight when paired with falafel. My boyfriend's vegetarian parents say it reminds them of their trip to Israel. You also get a lot of food on your plate. I always have leftovers.If you're looking to get full, but not feel heavy, go here.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Atmosphere, The Food

Cons: Gets Very Busy Sometimes, No Outside Seating
