First Review by The Hungry Vegan

Perfect - Edit

Beautiful and cosy spot for an authentic Jordanian meal, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Popular both with locals and visitors, the food is fantastic, service is great and prices very reasonable. Strongly recommended!

super cute place - Edit

The atmosphere style and whole place is just super. The food is delicious and I have eaten lots of hummus this trip but this is a special one.

Lovely farm-to-table eatery - Edit

Went here mid-afternoon on a Saturday. A very relaxed atmosphere, lots of space to sit and friendly staff.
This is a highly vegetarian-and-vegan-friendly restaurant/cafe, with lots of options. In fact, barring the bread and the dairy products, almost everything else is plant-based.
The menu is seasonal, too, so make sure to ask at the counter what's new.

Pros: tasty food, lots of choice, pleasant / relaxed feeling to the place

Cons: half-way up a hill?, not cheap

Fresh, delicious, friendly - Edit

This is one of those places where you can easily spend the whole day looking at the scenery and munching on their super tasty and fresh food.

Generally speaking, Middle Eastern food is very tasty and vegan friendly, but here you'll find tasty, local, seasonal, organic in a super welcoming environment. Some combinations with beans are not so easy to find elsewhere and the terrace is the perfect setting to enjoy all of this beautiful food.

What a treasure! - Edit

I came here on the first day on my first trip to the Levant. It spoiled me for all the other places I went. They had lots of great local dishes like za'atar flatbread, hummus, moutabal and makdous (see my photo with a bunch of different dishes). I really enjoyed it. It's a cute coffee shop with an English language menu. The outdoor terrace has beautiful views of Amman. It's a great choice for a casual meal.

Pros: Great Views, Inexpensive, Local Cuisine

Cons: none
