Thus place has way beyond Mediterranean items. However, some items are pricey. I liked the taste if the stuffed sambusa. The filling of cannoli however taste like Whipped cream. And the prepackaged sweets don't taste fresh.

Delicious baked za’tar and cheese (Mana’eesh). Worth checking it out if you are in the area, also getting some grocery shopping while waiting on food.

Unbelievable! If you want amazing brick oven pizza then this is your place!! It is Arabic pizza and it is absolutely delicious. I am currently addicted to the lebne and honey pizza which is just yogurt and honey and the beef and cheese. The beef is sweet and the cheese is buttery, you literally could not ask for anything better. And don't get me started on the bakery. If you want good food, which isn't easy to find in this area, then please try this. You will not regret it!

Every single menu item is OUTSTANDING, and the people are warm and welcoming. Huge selection of baklava also, and it’s amazing! Market is filled with hard to find international items and spices as well!

Delicious food, friendly staff, and fair prices. A great source for Mediterranean food to prepare at home, from scratch, or made to order. I'm addicted to the califlower platter.

This place is a gem. The bakery and feta are tasteful and good priced. You can find very specific mediterranean ingredients. Yes, the store can be a little bit more expensive than your regular grocery but besides being a small place also carries things you won't find somewhere else. The marinated olives are delightful. Will surely come back.

- staff is friendly.- have a nice selection of different items.- there food is ready good.- place was clean and organized.- prices not bad.- plenty of parking in the area.- overall a good first experience.- I'd recommend this location.
The Falafel sandwiches and the pastries are incredibly delicious. Like a best kept secret on the west end, if I wasn't living so close to it I might never stopped in to try it. I've had their Turkish coffee as well, but I'm not sure what good coffee taste like so I'm not gonna front. I did feel like a ten year old sipping a tea cup but I'm thinking that's part of the Experience. I dunno, lemme go run this by no one and get back to you. Food A++ though.

A neighborhood establishment with prepared foods precisely how they would be made overseas. Recently renovated and very nice.

Lots of choices in the grocery. They seem to be constantly busy. The take away kebab was ok’ish.The baklava was actually pretty good (which is what I initially wanted).I’ll try other food options next time.

The pastries are delicious! We tried the tomato and labne, spanokopita, and beef and labne options as well as some baklava. The pastries are served cold, but there were warm sandwich/pizza options that also looked delicious if you wanted a warm meal.While we were eating, they magically gave us free hummus and pita on the house! The hummus is very tahini-forward, which I love (we ended up buying a hub to take home as well).

This place is a classic and a much loved and apprecitated foodie mecca. It has every Middle Eastern delicacy, dessert and spice you could want. Authentic fresh pita. The sandwiches are delicious.

This is the only place I know of where I can get authentic Greek cheeses like Kefalotyri and other Greek ingredients. Most other Mediterranean shops will have Turkish and Persian products. If you are in need of authentic Greek products, this is the place to come to. Also, there is a kitchen counter for to go foods. The menu looks pretty good. I will have to give it a try another time. The selection of imports from the Mediterranean is great, and the staff is very friendly.

Wonderful place. The tabouli is the best I've had. The stuffed cabbage is delicious. The Syrian bread is authentic. The staff is friendly and helpful. I've been coming here for 30 years and the food is always reliably great!

This place significantly improved since I visited it first awhile ago. They offer great freshly made Mediterranean dishes, hundreds of items from all over the world you can't find at your grocery store. Always nice and clean and greatly organized. Oh, and don't forget freshly baked baklavas, cookies and delicious pastry of all sorts.

Delicious Mediterranean / Lebanese food. Been visiting since I was a teen back in the day. The quality and the taste has always been why visit. One stop shop with groceries amd fresh daily made pastries. A mist try if you are in the area...
Looking for those species and oils that you see on recipes. This store has it all. Love it

I ordered a birthday cake the day before my birthday party and it was ready for me the next day. The cake was delicious, not too sweet and plenty of fruit. It also came at a good price point compared to similar ones you'd get from other places. I had been looking around everywhere to find a good birthday cake but I'm so glad I found this place. I was able to pick it up from the bakery and was pleasantly surprised to find it had a lot of great items for sale. You can even get baklava and fatayer from here making other Middle Eastern favorites. I'm definitely going to be going back there to explore their offerings + buy more stuff.
