I know, not very original, but the falafel's are just so darned fresh and tasty, I always regret it when I get one somewhere else. The fact that Lenny Kravitz stops by on a regular basis (as the photo shrine on the walls testifies) has nothing to do with it! Order the "special" to go for a perfectly decent (vegetarian) meal for €4! It's basically a pita stuffed with fried hummus balls, cabbage, grilled eggplant, tahini and a dash of hot sauce (they usually ask if you want this). They've also got seating, but you may need the patience of Job on Sunday afternoons...
