Deep within the heart of Brooklyn Heights lies Waterfalls Cafe: a retreat for all New Yorkers fervently seeking a divine sense of euphoria, refreshment and exquisite taste from their food, without exhausting their wallet.
Waterfalls consistently defies all rules:
-it's fast, but good
-It's good, but cheap
-It's cheap, but delicious and
-it's delicious, but nutritious!
At this hidden gem, quality is paramount, and with this quality comes tantalizing taste, healthfulness and always a side of fluffy, delectable pita.
Don't be fooled by the "Cafe" moniker; Waterfalls rewards its customers with generous portions of grilled chicken, succulent lamb and beef kebabs and shawarmas, and Middle Eastern-inspired pizzas glazed in creamy cheeses and herbs. A pita sandwich teeming with fresh lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber yogurt sauce is priced at just $5.50.
Vegetarians can feast on such flavorful accoutrements as cucumber yogurt sauce, falafel, hummus and babaghanouj, and mohamara, a walnut and sweet red pepper-infused dip. When a decision can't be made, opt for the vegetarian platter, which provides an assortment of nearly every vegetarian dish offered.
Want an unforgettable deal? Diners who arrive on weekdays between 11:30am and 4:00pm are rewarded with a four-tiered prix fixe platter that's just $8.50! All the meat platters are served with copious helpings of either hummus or babaghanouj, rice or french fries, and a side of salad sprinkled with fresh feta cheese. The vegetarian platter is also offered at the same discounted price.
However, Waterfalls bestows diners with more than exquisite quality food and fantastic deals; upon walking in, customers are greeted with a sense of comfort, an affable staff, and the sweet scent of homemade pita dough and honey banana milk smoothies. With its Middle Eastern, laidback decor and cozy window seats, Waterfalls is a gem you happily come back to again and again.
