Aba’s Falafel

Treat your palate to fresh made-to-order falafel

Open daily 11 am to 3:30 pm, in the heart of Rhinebeck. Aba’s Falafel is a lunchtime hotspot known for its fresh falafel made from organic chickpeas and prepared to order. The classic fare is served alongside fresh salads, tahini, your pick of spicy or tangy sauces, and a warm pita. The menu also boasts sabich, hummus, soup, baklava, and Turkish coffee. Minus the pita, everything on the menu is gluten-free. Lovely indoor or outdoor seating (weather permitting), and take-out is also available. Simple, fresh, healthy, and always yummy!
