Norwood Patch: How long have you been in business?
Richard Nasr: We opened our first restaurant in Westwood in 2009 in the Amtrak Train Station on the first floor. Then we opened here in Norwood in 2012.
Norwood Patch: What are some of your specialties?
Richard Nasr: Our specialties two-fold: our salads and sandwiches. Oriental Chicken is our special and is always made with fresh ingredients and our Mediterranean fare like our falafel sandwiches and fattoush salad.
Norwood Patch: You have an enormous array of pastries, there must be one that is a favorite for your customers?
Richard Nasr: Definitely our baklava made fresh in-house.
Norwood Patch: What can you tell people about you and your restaurant that they may not know?
Richard Nasr: We have the best deal in town for the size and quality of our food! Where else can you get an egg and cheese sandwich on your choice of a bagel, English muffin or toast and a coffee for only $2.99! We may not be the only place in town doing breakfast and lunch, but we're doing it best with our inviting atmosphere including a sit down room with fireplace and our fresh and tasty food!
