    Delicious shawarma (gyro on the menu) wrapped in chewy, fresh Iraqi bread. I stopped by on a whim to bring food to the brewery cooperative and it hit the spot - the best I've had in town. My friend had the falafal and said it was perfect. I'll be back to try other items!

    Just driving by randomly, saw it in the corner of my eye, totally random. The biggest Gyro and Falafel Sandwiches I have ever eaten, all fresh and made with love.

    The place is a hole in the wall, but what they lack in decor, they make up for in quality.

    The fish baked or fried was amazing. Top that with freshly baked bread
    I highly recommend it.
    Ps: call a head. It takes time to prep the fish.

    Amazing, amazing food. Ordered biryiani, shwarma, kebab, zaatar and a bag of their fresh bread. Haven't had this bread in years and we used to call it crack bread. This is even better than what we used to buy.

    Hospitable owner and cook/cashier. I'll be back! They even offered to help walk me to my car because I had a bunch of bags to carry and it was raining hard.

    Awesome gyro! The bread was so fresh and warn and soft, I am addicted, and I'll definitely be back for more.

    Central Ave's best kept secret. Flat bread is always fresh, I'm talking still warm. They have a wide variety of Iraqi sweets as well. Service is always excellent; the baker is very friendly.
    The recently got a dner kebab spit and knock out exceptional Schwarma sandwhiches.

    Prices are fair and the bread is always fresh, can't ask for much more from a bakery.

    Cool - an Iraqi Bakery! Lots of sweet goodies ripe for the picking (load up, it's self-service), including the best baklava available in the Twin Cities (think ultra syrupy versus the more prevalent, drier "Greek" variety). Also, tried the "Iraqi fudge" Halawa Dihiniyya - moist, heavy, intensely sweet. Just a little bit is all you need, though, in true glutton fashion, I consumed approximately half a pound and enjoyed every last morsel. Looking forward to checking out the grill offerings (i.e. kebabs and such). Be prepared to communicate via gestures and smiles, as Arabic was the dominant language here among the staff and quite possibly the patrons too.
