I think the food is outstanding - always a good experience.
Heart of Jerusalem has the best hummus I have ever had! I don't usually like falafel, but theirs is fantastic and has become my normal order. The dolmas are perfect and served warm and the baklava is nommy. I wasn't too fond of the sandwiches, but the pita bread is incredible, especially with the spice mixture on it. Best Mediterranean food in Springs! Only thing they are missing is spanakopita.
Jake and Telly's has my vote for all around best patio. The fact that they have great, fresh food and awesome martinis is just gravy! Speaking of gravy, be sure to try their taziki, it rocks!
Summer's here -- it's time to go to Jake & Telly's! Ask for a table on their patio. Fresh, flavorful, healthful food. Attentive service, great location!
If the Mediterranean Diet is like eating at Med Cafe, I could follow it. I rarely order off the menu (although every time I have, I've been pleased) but opt for the "salad by the pound". A scoop of baba ghanouj, a scoop of Greek salad, some red pepper hummus, a spoonful of kalamata olives and a soft, warm pita... it can be a different meal each time. Their soups are good too and they have a soup and salad special that's the perfect size for lunch.
