Falafel Cafe – UCF Area

In search for delicious kebab platters and gyros from the near east at the footsteps of UCF? Look no further. Falafel Cafe, a Lebanese and Middle Eastern restaurant, has been around for a while near UCF on the corner of Alafaya Trail and University Blvd right next to the CB&S; bookstore behind Applebee’s. The logo at Falafel Cafe is the Cedar Tree, a symbol of Lebanon.

For starters choose from traditional salads, taboulehs, hummus, grape leaves, and more. Lentil soup is offered during lunch as well, complimentary. For my meal I choose the combination kebab platter, a trio of freshly marinated and grilled chicken, kafta, and beef (or lamb) kebabs ($15.99) with a healthy heap of rice. My friends order the gyro ($7.50). Although I enjoyed my meal, I must say it was a bit expensive. I’ll try some of their other less expensive meals next time and report back.

    The food here looks awesome! I rarely make it over to the UCF area but I'm thinking for this it might be worth the trip.

    Amazing and Healthy Food. I’ve been dining at Falafel Cafe several times since the beginning of the year and each meal is better than the other.

    The food is freshly made, extremely healthy, and so authentic Middle Eastern / Lebanese food.

    So far I’ve tried the Appetizer platter that comes with Hummus, Baba Ghannoujh, Tabbouleh, labneh, olives, tomato and falafel along with really good pita bread.

    The other dish I tried was their Shawarma with hummus that is a large serving of hummus topped with beef or chicken (or a combination of both) AMAZING!!

    If you are looking try something new, I highly recommend Falafel Cafe Orlando at the corner of University Blvd. and Alafaya Trail.

    Tell them Scott Bender Orlando Florida suggested trying the restaurant. You won’t be disappointed! This is truly a hidden gem on the East side of Orlando and certainly worth the drive for true authentic, healthy Middle Eastern food.
