Cedar Café is a family style restaurant that boasts authentic Mediterranean and classical American cuisine on the menu. The restaurant is a nice and comfortable place that is suitable for family meals. Popular items on the menu include the classic beef and lamb Shawarma which is seasoned with Mediterranean spices, Falafel Pita which is made from ground chickpeas and fava beans and lamb kebab which boasts marinated and grilled lamb chunks served on a bed of rice and comes with a choice of two sides.
Cedar Café also offers hummus as appetizers but it is its Sambusa which is popular with diners. Cedar Café's Sambusa are basically two handmade and baked dough pockets which are filled with a choice of beef or chicken. This restaurant has closed down.
We really want to like the Cedar Cafe and while the food is decent the restaurant itself is in poor shape and the service was not good.
Lamb Kabobs tough, Food cold server pleasant but a bit disorganized
We made our reservation for 8:30 in the evening, but when we arrived, we found out that they are only open until 9PM, and the kitchen closes at 8:50! Note that Cedar Cafe had 8:45 and 9:00 reservation slots as well that night. Further, we were told that they were busy all day and so were out of a lot of items. Can't comment on the food, as we didn't stay. On the plus side, they were very apologetic.
A big disappointment in the accuracy of information in OpenTable. Perhaps we will skip the app and just make reservations over the phone from now on...
While the food was fantastic, the wait staff wasn't terribly attententive and the restaurant was freezing. I'd recommend coming by in the warmer months when you have time to linger. Small, very casual place.
Good food, but more of a eat-in, than restaurant. Staff was nice, but challenged with menu listings.
The food was great, we enjoyed the buffet and the owner came out to tell us about the food. The major drawback was that the restaurant was cold - granted it was extremely cold outside but the door did not close properly and it made the restaurant somewhat cold.
The wait staff was wonderful, and the food was incredible. Some of the best hummus I've ever had.
