The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, hummus, and tabouli growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of Middle Eastern and Lebanese cuisine at CedarLand Bakery and Restaurant on Linden Avenue.
The menu at CedarLand features authentic Lebanese fare, served fresh from kitchen to plate. The tasty falafel sandwich ($4.99) is delicious on its own, but it achieves super-food status when paired with creamy hummus and pita bread ($3.50). Middle Eastern staples like tabouli salad ($3.50) and baba ghannouj ($3.50) are also available for quelling raucous appetite keggers with healthy, naturally delicious fare. Shawarma and shish kebab sandwiches ($4.99) are made with beef or chicken, and each is lovingly tucked into its bread borders before being sung to sleep by a chorus of chic peas. Pies are a specialty at CedarLand, which features varieties like meat pie made with ground beef, onion, tomato, and spices ($1 to $2.99), mozzarella cheese pie ($1 to $2.99), and Popeye's favorite on-the-go snack, spinach pie ($1).
This causal, family owned restaurant features a picturesque wall mural, Middle Eastern decorative touches, and an inviting display case full of fresh-baked goods. Baklava and other assorted pastries ($1 each) are made from scratch, while savory sides keep customers and empty stomachs dreaming of their next Lebanese feast.
Good for dine-in and carry-out only.

Cedarland Bakery & Restaurant
Taking its name from the symbolic plant of Lebanon, Cedarland Bakery & Restaurant excites palates with the sweet and savory delicacies from the Levant. Fluffy loaves of pita conceal treasures of crunchy-chewy falafel and tender chicken shawarma, and meat- and spinach-filled pastries challenge apple pie for its coveted spot in the American psyche. A handsome mural of rustic Mediterranean scenery fills the space, complementing relaxing hookah sessions or feasts of baklava, hummus, and baked kibbeh.
