My husband came upon this Lebanese cafe and bakery on his way home from work one day. We decided to visit on a Saturday.
This lovely cafe is one of the most spotless and well-organized places we have visited.
The owner greeted us as we walked in. He named the restaurant after his son, Adam. His main love is baking, and it shows!
After we ordered lunch, we had fun drooling over all of the pastries, cakes, and cookies on display. Everything here is made from scratch, from the spice mix to the pickles.
We ordered a great variety of dishes. The first one was their Lebanese version of falafel and hummus. It was flavorful, fresh, and generous with olive oil and seasonings.
Next, we ordered my favorite dish. It is a flatbread, almost like a pizza. I ordered the one with half cheese and half za'atar spice mix on it. It was so delightful! I loved the melty, mild cheese, and the spice mix was just what I craved!
It is fantastic to know they make their own za-atar spice mix you can buy in a container.
My husband decided to try one of their famous chicken shawarma wraps. He loved the combination of fresh, juicy chicken, sauce, and homemade pickles.
We also decided to try their chicken shawarma entree, including salad, hummus, and rice. It was a generous portion, and I loved the spices and flavors. It was a treat to have the hummus side with fresh tomatoes and olives too.
I especially loved the sour cream topping on the chicken. It was creamy, light, and refreshing. A great accompaniment to the dish.
We also absolutely loved their stuffed grape leaves. They come in a container with a generous amount of olive oil on top. They are simply divine! The owner's mother-in-law makes them from scratch. You do not want to miss these!
Lastly, we went for desserts. We had never tried the soft, filled cookies called maamool before. They are a melt-in-your-mouth confection served plain, with dates, pistachios, or walnuts inside.
What I love most about these sweets is that they are not overly sweet.
We opted for a variety box so that we could taste all the flavors.
We also tried their cornmeal coconut cake which ended up being my favorite dessert. It is full of coconut flavor, light, sweet and tender. If you love coconut, this is for you!
Our visit to this cafe was fantastic! The owner even helped us to the car with all of our treats. I cannot wait to go back and try more dishes.
I hope you visit this special place soon.
