Queen of Falafel is a tiny spot (attached to House of Yes) serving the freshest and tastiest Mediterranean food in the neighborhood. If you're able to grab one of its few seats (this place is tiny), you'll be treated to an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're eating in a shack owned by the coolest grandma ever. Or just pick it up on your way home for couch glory.
