Middle Eastern (specifically Syrian) bakery and restaurant -- they have a few tables but also do a lot of takeout business. You can get all of the standards from baklava to mujaddara, but you can also get some things you won't see anywhere else, like red pepper kibbeh (kibbeh footballs in a lovely red pepper sauce), ajjeh (spinach casserole served with garlic sauce), beet hummous, and more. On the bakery side, they also do very elaborate, but tasty, cakes.


  • Great place for a quick lunch or dinner. Falafel is usually pretty good. Pastries and desserts are good as well, super-rich peanut butter brownies are a favorite.
  • Yelp reviews

A friend hipped me to this place a few years ago. I had them cater a few events--they're very reasonably priced caterers believe it or not. Also, a TON OF FOOD. You'll have leftovers for days. The combos are great--you can choose up to three items if the ones listed on the menu don't tickle your tongue. They're not as student pocket-friendly as J-Garden, but you get a LOT of food, and I think it's actually better. (4 stars)
