This tiny spot is the perfect sojourn before or after a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, thanks to its delectable and affordable Mediterranean food and friendly service. A diminutive and humble place, it has only six tables, but the chef/owner provides a warm welcome, recommending favorite items before he goes to work in the tiny back kitchen.
Signs in the room advertise the café's famed creamy garlic sauce, best enjoyed in a pita wrapped with chicken, tomato and spinach. The luscious tahini that accompanies crisp, golden falafel is almost as good, and a classic Greek salad is refreshingly satisfying. Don’t fill up completely though, as the homemade baklava, which the restaurant also sells at the local Tuesday farmer's market, is sure to sate.- Les inspecteurs du guide MICHELIN
