Service is sometimes slow for lunch, but well worth the wait. Fabulous hummus and large portions. It's a BYOB and inexpensive for a filling dinner so it's great when you want to be a recessionista.

Aya's Cafe serves great Mediterranean food right in the heart of Philly. It's easy walking distance from the Franklin Institute and the Museaum of Art. The best thing on the menu has to be the Lobster Stuffed Ravioli which is absolutely delicious.

This place was just great. My girlfriend and I couldn't get a table at the Mission Grill, so we walked to Aya's down the street. There were plenty of tables, and we had a bottle of wine with us. The server was very friendly and helpful, and made some good recommendations. I had the saffron mussel soup, which was great, followed up by an incredible leg of lamb that was just out of this world. My lady got the seafood kabobs, which were really tasty as well. Just a nice, relaxing, unpretentious, and delicious dining experience.

Aya's Cafe has such great dishes. I had the lamb stew and it was delicious. The appetizer sampler also is a great choice. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming and the staff are very friendly. On Saturdays they have a belly dancer during dinner time. WOW! She managed to keep myself, my husband and our six kids in awe during her entire performance! Great food and great entertainment!

Pros: great food, great entertainment

Cons: stereo system for the dancer was low towards the front

The only problem with this place is that not enough people know about it. The setting is great the owners and servers are polite and prompt. This place has a nice mix of Italian and Middle Eastern food and I make it my business to try it all. So far my favorite meal has been the lamb stew. I wish this business the best because every time I go there I feel right at home and I hope to keep it that way so try it out I am sure you'll love it.

The service is extremely attentive. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Its surprisingly romantic. Try the moussaka, cilantro lamb stew, shwarma, baklava and the egyptian rice pudding. Everything is delish.

Aya's menu is a blend of Italian and Middle Eastern dishes with both pastas and hummus to be found on the menu. This small, family-run cafe features some unusual dishes that are always fresh and pleasantly spiced. The atmosphere is warm and quiet with attentive servers. I've taken friends to Aya's on numerous occasions and the reaction is always one of pleasant surprise. Try the grilled eggplant; it's a vegetarian's delight with cous cous and roasted vegetables.
Open weekdays for lunch - this is one of the best lunch values to be found in this part of town.

I love this place! It is so intimate and cozy, and the quality of the food was at a level that was way beyond my expectations. I had the Saffron Mussel soup and I have never eaten anything so fabulous; the kabob was tender and really just perfectly grilled, not too spicy, not bland at all. My husband plowed through the lobster-stuffed ravioli and was in heaven. The rice pudding is just out of this world-- it's worth it just to go for that. Our server was attentive and sweet, not over-bearing, and the owner made us feel so welcome... We will definitely be making repeat visits to Aya's!!
