A few simple INGREDIENTS...

authentic × healthy × middle-eastern


Baladi Mediterranean Café offers taste of owner's Homeland.

Baladi opened in 2008 at Hilltop West Shopping Center. Since then, Chef Khaled has been serving both quality interpretations of classic Palestinian dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of Middle-Eastern Cuisine.

The phrase Baladi Foods means natural and organic foods that are prepared with traditional methods. Café's interior reflects the setting of a traditional home in Middle East also paying tribute to hospitality of Arabic culture.

All food is prepared daily. We only use:

  • Organic, Unfiltered Olive Oil (Lebanon);
  • Organic, Authentic, Imported Spices (Palestine);
  • Organic Turbinado Sugar and Clover Honey;
  • Purified, Filtered Water.
It was such a wonderful experience that I know we are going to talk about this place for many years.
— Debora Dohrbeck, "Minimalist Traveler"
Variety is the spice of life, right? Well, a variety of spices is what Baladi Mediterranean Cafe is all about, and the Virginia Beach restaurant’s falafel is one of life’s delicious pleasures.
— Judy Cowling, "Virginian Pilot"
