Drawing from the Mediterranean’s world-renowned cuisine, Sultan Cafe's menu gives diners several options for lunch and dinner, including a zesty greek salad, creamy baked ziti, and delicately spiced chicken shawarma. And many visitors finish their meal with the restaurant's celebrated Turkish coffee. Guests lounge in plush armchairs and munch on falafel, hummus, or burgers while they take advantage of the cafe's complimentary Wi-Fi or play games of backgammon. Regulars chat with barista Michael Makboul over cups of cardamom-spiced coffee—feel free to discuss the building’s history as an office for novelist Chuck Palahniuk. On the patio, diners can cap off their evening with a hookah, cleansing the palate with a combination of intense-flavored smoke, such as mint, banana, strawberry, and mango.
