What You'll Get


Breaking bread is a bonding experience, encouraging new friendships while testing the strength of communal sledgehammers. Swing into sustenance with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a dinner for two at The Armenian Cafe in Carlsbad (up to an $80 value). The dinner for two includes:

  • Two glasses of house wine or soft drinks (up to a $6 value each)
  • Two chicken-lemon soups with orzo noodles
  • Two Armenian Greek salads with feta cheese and kalamata olives
  • One appetizer to share

    • Feta, tomato, and onion plate
    • Feta, cucumber, and tomato plate
    • Hummus dip
    • Garlic house dip
    • Tahini dip
    • Jajek dip

    • Dolmades (sarma stuffed grape leaves)
    • Spanakopita Spinach Beregs
    • Cheese Beregs Tyropita
    • Falafel Vegetable Burgers

The Armenian Cafe entertains patrons' palates with a multicourse meal filled with favorites from their authentically hearty menu. Duos can initiate their feast with an uninterrupted period of eye contact while nibbling on a shared appetizer, such as the creamy garbanzo bean and tahini blend of the hummus dip. Entrees include the beef or pork shish kebabs and vegetarian-friendly falafel burgers that, unlike butcher's kisses, are reassuringly meat-free. Chicken- and lemon-flavored hav-abour soup with orzo and an Armenian greek salad, sprinkled with mild feta cheese and homemade crispy pita croutons, accompany each entree as it makes its tabletop debut. Sweet teeth can emerge at meal's end and latch onto an order of baklava, layers of lightly buttered filo dough intertwined with imported whole pistachios and cinnamon. In between bites of Armenian Cafe's delectables, diners can rehydrate parched throats or severely impair potted plants' ability to understand Mozart with house wine and liqueur coffee.

About The Armenian Cafe


At The Armenian Cafe, chefs have mastered the delicate art of adaptation. Their far-reaching menu spans the meals of an entire day, incorporating many entrees that seem American at first glance, but have actually been injected with Mediterranean flair. What appear to be crunchy chips are toasted segments of pita bread; breakfast omelets can contain gyro meat and falafel in addition to morning meat staples; and pieces of cured Armenian beef sausage dapple mozzarella and feta cheese on the soujouk pizza. Even desserts receive the fusion treatment, with layers of baklava filo dough sandwiching the creamy filling of an Armenian cheesecake.

Of course, the kitchen also produces recognizable classics of the culinary genre. The chefs closely guard the secret marinade that flavors their rack of lamb, just as they do the recipe for the garlic house dip—curious diners have only managed to discover that it does not, in fact, contain spaghetti. Shish kebabs and pita sandwiches, on the other hand, flaunt housemade tannouri pita bread and pair well with sips of Armenian coffee and sights of belly dancing on Friday and Saturday. From 2008 to 2012, this mix of the inventive with the traditional has helped the café win first-place or runner-up status from CityVoter for Best Mediterranean.
