This independent restaurant, located in the Westgate Mall, is a no-meat and no-fuss falafel place. Choose from the conventional falafel filled pita, or fill up your bowl with falafels and toppings of your choice. Except for the pita, everything here is gluten free. The artisan sodas are also a much-loved highlight of the cafe. The garlic fries and babagoodnews (babaghanoush) are a must try. These guys are very modest, claiming they only make the third best falafel in the world!
