End of an Era... Or does it have to be?
This is really sad news for those who are familiar with the veteran diner/cafe in Flatbush.

Near train station, Yeshiva of Flatbush, Touro. Click here to check out our Facebook page with more info and to share your memories.
The owners of the very popular falafel and Middle Eastern restaurant in Brooklyn are keeping their doors open but are looking to sell. As you can imagine owning and operating a restaurant takes a huge amount of time and effort and the owners are working on more ventures and feel now is the right time to sell it.
