Cheap Option

Cheap option on Santa Cruz. The falafel was heavy on cilantro, in my opinion, but I did enjoy it. It came with a lot of hummus, which I appreciated, plus lettuce, tomato, and onion. Quick, easy, cheap, and tasty.

Hit or miss

Have had this falafel a few times. It is cooked right on the rotating kebab grill under the meat, one time there was so much animal fat on the part they heat the falafels that I had to eat somewhere else. The first time I ate here the shawarma was really bad, with dry and hard falafel with stale wrap. A second time it was much better. A decent option if in search for a quick and cheap meal.

Cheapest vegan dinner in town

In an area lacking good vegan options, this might be the best option.
We discovered this place from the menu hanging outside. They have indoor & outdoor seating. The staff are very friendly. Note that the menu is in English, but staff don't speak English.
$5 for a falafel + hummus wrap is the cheapest vegan dinner at any restaurant in the area.
It was good & filling, and we were glad to save money eating here.
We went here multiple times. They're only open for dinner, and they did run out of falafel one night before we got there.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Serves meat
