While Philadelphia has several delicious Middle Eastern restaurants, the area of Center City right around Broad Street had none until Leila Cafe arrived on the scene in 2009. The Cafe is small and charming, with a beautiful mosaic by Philadelphia's Isaiah Zagar serving as the focal point. Leila Cafe is perfect for an affordable meal of baba ghanoush, kabobs, or other classic Middle Eastern dishes. It also stays open until 2 am every day except Sunday, so hungry people leaving bars can go snack on falafel and hummus.
