Short & sweet, this is a neighborhood gem!  It's up by Casper's Hotdogs in the Newell Hill Place strip mall.  

It's small, but clean, and the owner is a sweetheart!  The Persian hot entrĂ©es are getting good reviews on Yelp.  We usually go for some hummus from the cold case (up by the cash register) & a package of Armenian cracker bread.  The dried mulberries are a neat little munchie treat,  too!  We never leave without a container of coconut macaroons. 

Check out the nice variety of veggies & meats in the back of the store. 

Plus, it's relaxing & personable, a nice change from the manic vibe at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.


Great place!  Try it and support small, unique businesses in our neighborhood!
