Best Food in town. Great food and friendly stuff. You can eat the best middle eastern food in kansas city. (in my oppinion). Where to start i had a Warm Vegeterian Combo for appetizer (recomended 5*) and a Rack of Lamb as a meal with a Lentil soup. The Lamb was perfectly cook as i asked. The Lamb had a great sauce i would have anytime. The owner seemed very nice, i guess he likes politics because i have been there twice already and i only heard him talk about politics at the bar (funny). Who ever wants have a great taste of the middle east needs to go there. I recomend it.
Worth the trip.
Congenial host, pleasant, if somewhat humble, surroundings and great food. Recently they've added music on several evenings and the owner always has something creative going on to bring folks through the front door.
Once there, you'll find the food is impeccable regardless of what you order, the staff unerringly friendly and of course Cafe Cedar's always outgoing host will cater to your every need.
This is the top mid-eastern restaurant in the metro area, the best of the best.
Fantastic Mediterranean Food!. This place is amazing.... a wild cross between a river boat from the old west and middle eastern decor. I loved it. The food is to die for. I had the special, Kebbe Be Lahemei (I think is how you spell it) and it was phenomenal. Next time I am going to try the sultan chicken. The pita bread is made right there at the restaurant, and it is served grilled and soft. The owner was telling another customer, everything is made from scratch and he gets spices from the middle east. They have art from area artists displayed and for sale, they also have a heck of a music line-up. We went on a tuesday and Brian Ruskin was playing with several other musicians and it was so great. A perfect compliment to the evening. Great place for a date or to meet friends.... If you like middle eastern food, you have to try Cafe Cedar....
Great Hummus and Baba Ganouj!. My gal-pals and I breezed into Parkville for my Pre-birthday dinner. I had chosen Café Cedar because I wanted to try something different and for some reason the name Café Cedar caught my eye. Our server was delightful and attentive but she accidentally switched plates on one of my gal-pals who ended up with a bland fried catfish the other party getting her sea bass which, my friend finally did get. She said it was very good. I had the Cornish game hen stuffed with rice. It was good as was the cucumber sauce. The greenbeans were limp and tasteless, unfortunately. We chose an Australian Shiraz as our server was a friendly young woman from Downunder. The hummus and baba ganouj were divoon. Going back to the entrée mixup, the Restaurant owner/manager was very quick to rectify the situation before we could bring it to his attention. He and our server apologized profusely and comped our wine which was a very gracious gesture. He later came back and apologized at least two more times. I told my friend that the man was very concerned about his customer service and I for one appreciate that. Overall, the taste of dinner was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary. The environment was pleasant. The service was attentive and pleasant. I would go back again and try some of the other things.
Middle Eastern Food Cafe Cedar. wonderful food, can't wait to go back. They still allow smoking in a back area. I love the middle eastern food, but my mom and sister prefer the American. The best, bar none, southern fried chicken around. Go figure! They love it.
