Maddie Kutler2022-07-28 Our server was one of the best I’ve ever had, she was so kind and attentive. The food was great (particularly the pita), and service was fast. I went with my friend who lives in the area, and she’s been for brunch which she said was also excellent.
The food was outstanding! I had octopus for an appetizer and salmon for a main course. It was delicious ! The humus was blended with beats and was absolutely delicious! I have never tried anything like that before! I had Basbousa St Germain cake for desert. It was to die for! And then they gave me tea with ginger, lime, mint and honey. I had an incredible evening and delicious dinner! The ambiance in the restaurant was very relaxing after a hard day at work. I will definitely be back and this time for both dinner and breakfast that I hear has incredible deserts.
What a charming cafe/restaurant. I was walking my dog and saw that it had floor to ceiling windows -which enabled me to have coffee inside, while my dog sat outside (it was a beautiful, unseasonably warm day). The manager and waiter were friendly. I had a latte and a delicious pastry (Basbousa St, Germain) which they said was made in house. I'm looking forward to returning soon for a meal.
Came to Lashevet for lunch. Delicious food, service and atmosphere. The owners were so inviting and welcoming to the neighborhood. Will definitely be back!!
The pita was thick and fresh, and the falafel & eggplant tasted incredible together. I also ordered a slightly sweetened Turkish coffee, which was lighter than I expected but very refreshing. Looking forward to coming back for dinner!
I had a lunch at Lashevet yesterday with my friends. The food was amazing, we absolutely loved hummus with pita & sesame ka'ak bread and completed with home made cookies and their specially teas. We loved the ambiance being cool with interesting design and nice music and service was top notch. We are going back to this gem restaurant for dinner!
