Also in July, Haytham Fayyad opened Afundi’s Cafe at 304 South Ashley, next door to the Fleetwood Diner. The original Afundi’s near Tangier boasts the best view in Morocco overlooking the Atlantic on one side and the Mediterranean on the other. Dearborn designer Dia Mata has created the feel of an open-air Mediterranean cafe. The original tin ceiling has been painstakingly restored. The family makes its own shwarma and kafta, and slow cooks its own corned beef, pastrami and roast beef. Afundi’s has two menus; a breakfast selection and an expansive lunch and dinner menu.

And whatever you do, don't miss Afundi's, the amazing Mediterranean cafe next to the Fleetwood. Owner Andy is a gracious host, waiting tables, kissing babies, and making sure his mother's home cooking and his service exceed your expectations. Fabulous grilled meats (shwarma, kufta), omelettes, and a relaxed, open atmosphere make this a good choice for parental visits, dates, andother special occasions where you wish to interact with your company instead of just stuffing your face.
