Cafe Menu

Our menu is comprised of home made dishes from throughout the Mediterranean, specifically Tunisia, Morocco, Italy, Greece, and Spain. We serve our food "deli-style," meaning most items are priced by-the-pound. This allows our customers to have as much or as little of each dish, mixing and matching items to create all sorts of delicious, unique plates. 

We continually try to update and expand our offerings, so some menu items are not always available. Click on the menu item name for more information about each dish, or give us a call at (734)585-0686 and we can answer any questions you might have.
