Awful service, unprofessional employees, refused to serve tap water, the waiters were clearly serving their friends and just hanging out instead of doing their jobs.

Make sure you get the Hummus, Babaganoush, and/or the Feta Cheese plate. (They all taste good together, anyway.)

There was hair cooked in the bread that was served to us. Babaganush is like yogurt dip, too watery, it needs to be chunkier with real egg plants not puréed.

Some food was good (Roasted Chicken, falafel) but the humus was not up to par. Other similar restaurants in the area have superior food.

This place was horrible.... From the service to the food... I was greated by a woman sitting in the front smoking a cigarette... The food was not good at all and the ambiance was uncomfortable and not pleasing. I would never recommend this place

This past March, Passion Cafe & Lounge got a new owner and a new a chef. Educated at the Culinary Institute, Chef Josh uses his classical training to fuse Mediterranean and Persian influences into a single extensive menu. His specialties include beef schnitzel, hand-breaded filets of meat served over basmati rice, and the simple yet delicious tomato and egg shakshuka, two poached eggs in a hearty tomato-vegetable sauce flavored with garlic, onions, and saffron tea, and ingredient normally only found in cups of hot water and recently pranked hot springs.
