 Sabor Miami Cafe and Gallery
4848 Broadview Rd., Cleveland
This adorable little cafe and art gallery is reminiscent of the Cuban joints you’ll find all over south Florida. You can’t go wrong with a Cuban sandwich here, but the empanadas are just as good. And the drinks like horchata and café con leche are a perfect complement to your meal.

 Tony K’s Bar & Grille 
841 West Bagley Rd., Berea
"This is my absolute favorite place to get hummus and tabouleh from. I also recently tried the stuffed grape leaves and they are WONDERFUL!  I live 45 minutes from this restaurant but it is worth every minute of the drive to get their delicious food. Dining in is great but we've also picked it up for takeout and have been just as satisfied. Don't be thrown off because it doesn't "look" Mediterranean from the outside - this place serves some of the best Greek food around. Highly recommend!" Chris R. on Yelp
