Location Description:

Central Café offers Lebanese cuisine in a fast-casual setting. The menu includes appetizers such as hummus, tabbouleh, fatoush, falafel and kibbe (beef, onions and almonds served with a yogurt sauce.) For heftier meals, Central Café offers sandwiches and entrées, including kebabs (available with chicken, beef or kafta - ground beef with spices, parsley, onions and garlic) and shawarma. The "rotisserie" chicken is a standout, spicy and flavorful. Guests can sit inside or enjoy the small patio. Central Café also offers hookahs.
