Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Lebanese fare and drinks at Cedarland Bakery & Restaurant.
Cedarland Bakery & Restaurant's staff curates a menu of casual Lebanese and Mediterranean fare served in colossal portions with steaming disks of fresh-baked pita bread. Like a soccer player starring in a snack endorsement, morsels of falafel ($4.99) kick off mealtimes with niblets of chickpeas fried up with onion and spices, and creamy mounds of baba gannouj ($3.50) cascade over a canvas of pita bread. Shawarma beef sandwiches ($4.99) pack flat bread in sliced and spiced beef coated in sesame sauce, and spinach pie's flaky crust comes stuffed with spinach, onion, and lemon juice ($1). A selection of teas and ultrastrong lebanese coffee ($1) are on hand to wash down midday snacks and overshadow stains left by weaker caffeinated beverages. While imbibing the eatery's flavors and sitting in its booths or at its movable-chair-surrounded tables, patrons can admire mural-decorated walls depicting scenes of bucolic splendor and plants hanging from the ceiling.
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.
